I have the following network setup:
A fiberoptic router (provided by service provider, no wireless functionality) -> to a wireless Linksys router (to get wireless coverage at home) -> to Switch 1 -> to Switch 2 (in another room, cabling is through a wall) -> output to computers.
ISSUE: When I connect a computer to any output of Switch 2, it gets an IP Address of
169.254..., which tells me that it cannot negotiate with the DHCP server (in the Linksys router), whereas if I connect a computer to the cable that goes from Switch 1 to Switch 2, it works fine. I'm not able to figure out what the issue is.
