Hi Experts,

One of my customer is using a GS724TP as their core network switch (with only one VLAN).  I'm not familiar with network switches at all and they want to add another GS748TP to their existing network.  So my question is how should i do the config to put these two together and using the same VLAN?

Thanks in advance!

If there is only 1 vlan, that means no vlans as it's the default. So just pick one port as the uplink and plug it into both switches. You shouldn't have to setup anything but the IP address for the new switch.

If you want to add vlans, you basically need to choose if they exit the switch tagged or untagged. Always exit tagged to another switch, add the same vlans to both switches, and almost always exit untagged to computers. The main exception are esxi, some VoIP phones, and some computers may want tagged packets if their nic and your need will support it.
