I had to setup a 32 ports network. I want to use 16 ports switches -who are cheaper- and interconnect them.
I was looking some cnet switches who saids:
"Port 16 has extra port for Crossover function".
There's the question.
Can I interconnect -cascade- a switch to another using any port (and maybe a crossover patch cord) or I had to use this 16 port? Are thinked on this way or there is a better one?
There are also ones with a fiber optic module (that I understand are for long distances over 100 mts). I'm right?
