I now have TWO switches at Doty. As VISMT and some schools found out, a
single switch will only handle 48 drops, not 72 (the second slot is for
Anyway, does anybody else have ways to wire the two switches together?
I have a punch down panel that all computer equipment comes to and then
the two switches. I can hook up half the computers on one switch and
half the computers on the other switch, but the two switches need to
talk to each other so that all the IP addresses in the building are able

or do I need to get a fiber cable and fiber board/blade from VISMT and
backbone the two together? Is there another way?
any help would be appriciated
