Can i link two home switch (not professional like cisco) togeher in this way:

router 1 -> switch 1 -> switch 2 router 1 -> switch 2 -> switch 1

I want that when switch 1 goes down i still have switch 2 working

I also wants that the connections between the devices connected to the switch 1 and switch 2 are made through switches and not trough router.

It is possible?



Your question is bordering on incomprehensible, but the short answer is no. On an unmanaged switch, you will create a loop which will render your network inoperable in a very short space of time.

  • @user2119955 Yeah, you're not going to be able to achieve what you want to achieve using consumer hardware. – Dan May 13 '13 at 15:45
  • It's not inherent to unmanaged switches, the relevant part is support for "Spanning Tree Protocol" (STP) which is very rarely seen on unmanaged switches – LapTop006 May 13 '13 at 17:05
