We are looking at moving from an in house phone system to a cloud based VOIP system. The issue is we only have one Ethernet jack at each workstation.  I have heard that it is not a good idea to connect the ip phone to the jack and then connect the workstation/laptop to the ip phone's Ethernet jack.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  Does it work or does it slow down the workstation, cause connectivity issues, etc.?  Any comments are appreciated.


Thanks,
