Daisy chain switches

Last Modified: 2015-07-07
Hi Experts,

we have 4 switches all running at the same speed, same model.

the current setup is that we have 1 network cable which goes into switch 1 and then daisy chains to switch 2 and 3 and 4.

my router has 6 outputs, would I benefit by taking a connection into each switch directly from the router?
