My current home LAN setup has a 5-port switch connected via the "uplink" to a 4-port hub, giving me seven connections. However, I want to network in two computers from another room, and rather than run two separate CAT5 cables I was thinking of buying another switch, then using the "uplink" to connect via a single cable to my existing switch and then connecting the two computers to this new switch. Will it work ? What problems can I get from having a switch uplinked to another switch (seems to work fine with a switch/hub) ? P.S. I believe the "uplink" is a special port that effectively converts a normal CAT5 cable into a crossove, thereby allowing two similar devices to talk to each other.
