Hi,

Here's is my schema.



I am a noob in vlan and stuff..just starting listening dans course on youtube.



Internet -- Modem -- rooter/FW ---wire1--- SW1(2960(24porte)) ---wire 2---- SW2(2960(48 porte))--wire 3---SW5 (non VLAN - 8 port switch)-- PC1


connect to SW1
|
|---wire 4 ---SW3(3com (48 porte))---wire 5 ---- NO vlan AP wifi--PC2





I connect the up link of SW3 to the down link SW1 using a straight cable and the port get the orange color (like 10Mb) ? should be 1Gb port !!..something i missed ^^



1) How we normally connect switch between them (up,down,normal port) and should i use straight or cross cable for wire 1,2,3,4 and 5 (in my example) ?



2) let say SW2 as 2 VLAN 20 (port 10-15) and VLAN 40 (port 16-20) in access mode), and it s connect to SW1 through trunked port (port 1 on SW2 and port 1 on SW1)...SW5 is connected to SW2 port 11 . Does PC1 belong to VLAN20 ?
SW5 is only part of the default VLAN 1 as it is a non vlan switch ? or is there something like inheritance between dump 8 port switch and the other Layer 2 switch (like mine 2960)?
3) same question for the NO VLAN AP wifi



thanks for help

It would help if we could see the schma :D 

You may want to use packet tracer to simulate your topology. :D  that way you could also see whether it works or not :D

i did use packet tracer and it works fine with this configuration..but as in theory it should not work -> i post the question ...
Schema is in the post. (or not)
-- : is for cable

1. All cables should be straight cable :D .

2. I believe SW5 would fall under VLAN20.

3. Still VLAN20.
