I am having some issues connecting two netgear switches (FSM726 FS524), the servers do not work properly unless they are both on one switch. It suggests that the switches have not been connected properly. All I have done is used a standard port to connect the two switches.

And scanning google, I see the people are using the term daisy-chain, cascade or stacking. Are they all synonumous. Netgear says cascading only applies to HUBS not switches.
