port trunk for hp switches?

How should i configure my 3x HP switches?
I have a L3 HP 2910al poe and 2x HP 1910s (l2)
I have 2x vlans 1&20 on the l3 switch and vlan1 only on the 2x 1910s.
Should the port(s) going from the 2910al to the 2x 1910s be marked as a trunk port?
Currently they are left untagged.
Thanks

If there's only one VLAN configured on the 1910s and the 2910 is passing the correct VLAN then there's no need to start tagging ports.

okay.  just seems that recently data has slowed.  possibly due to prioritising voice on the l3.

Perhaps take a look at the stats on the ports to see if you can find a bottleneck. This might be easier using some kind of SNMP monitoring tool such as PRTG, Spiceworks etc.
