Currently one of our branch is shifting to another location where it has one 48 Ports L2 Switch with wan data link from our head office. Can I connect and use the existing  unmanageable gigabyte switches  to the l2 Switch? The l2 Switch is D Link 48 ports.

your L2 switch must be like :

switchport acess vlan 2

you need you confgure your L3 switch similarly

int gig

switchport mode access
switchport mode acess vlan add 2

I am just typing command..please check the correct sequence on CLI
