Networking Question from NOOB

By igmuskala ·
We have a DSL Modem, several switches but lost critical information resulting from former tech geek leaving the premises.
How does one configure the daisy-chained switches? We know our Gateway IP as well as ISP info but we got lost when going further down the daisy-chained switches. Do we use the Gateway IP and DHCP on each switch and hope for the best?

Switches are typically layer2 devices

thus they have no IP information, and it does not matter if they did.

If you have a more complex layer-3 VLAN environment, that would be another story.

What make/model switches do you have?

You will have to have a look on the switches themselves..

You will need crossover cables for the connections or the switches have upload ports to which you connect the cables to daisy chain them together.
