please bear with me as i'm a novice at best.
so there are about 60-70 network devices in this small office network- computers, printers etc.
so we have a modem- provided by our isp with a 300mbps/300mbps service- connected to a netgear router. the router is in turn connected to a cisco gs200 50-port switch. the need arose for more wired devices, so we got another gs200 switch.
everything seems to work fine, just uncertain if this is adequate for the network, or if an alternate configuration, such as pairing each switch directly with the router would provide practical benefits.
