I recently built a new detached garage, with an office above. As such I had it tied into my existing home Ethernet wiring. The Ethernet signal is coming into the garage just fine, but I cannot get my network configured the way I want because of problems trying to link the various router/switch devices.
Here is my current state:
Here is my desired future state:
I can't get my future state to work. I'm not sure if I'm using incompatible switches or some other issue - I tried the future state with some 4 port switches from Best Buy but had no luck. I resorted to setting up the current state so I could operate.
What's the best way to get my future state working? Is this possible with my current configuration, and if not, what should I do?
