Hi, I recently got the Fibe25 internet (Fiber to home service) which came with the Sagemcom modem/router. I have a question regarding the setup of my home network. I have the whole house wired with cat5e and the Sagemcom modem is in the basement. The question is can I plug in D-Link 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch (DGS-1008G) into LAN1 port of Sagemcom modem and Linksys wireless router to LAN2. The Linksys will be placed on the second floor of the house connected to a wall jack. While the other jacks in the house will be getting connection via the Dlink switch. Is this setup possible?
That's the b config, just need to make sure both ends are the same if you want it to act like a regular cat5e cable, if it is not working, take a good look because you might have mixed up a wire or 2 just before you crimped If you wanted a cross over cable you would crimp one side in the a config and the other side in the b config.
