I know this is a stupid question (I probably need a crossover cable) but just to make sure I can't use a regular ethernet cable I am asking this question.

.... Our office has an existing SD205 switch, I purchased another to expand it's ports .. so I'm going to plug in the new SD205 to the 5th port on the existing SD205 but want to make sure I have the right type of ethernet cable ...

Will this cable suffice:

You can use a regular network cable. Adding the switch will add more traffic to the port that it is plugged in to.
