I've got a Cisco Switch WS-C2950SX-24 24 port switch that I want to connect to a network port to allow computers to connect using it. I'm just not sure what/how to do this. Do I plug the network cable from the wallport into the console plug on the back, or port 1 on the front, or some other port? And then all the cables to the computers use the rest of the ports on the front. Are the lights on the front supposed to be in a set configuration? The options are:
Top row: SYST, RPS Bottom row: STAT, UTIL, DUPLX, SPEED
Basically I'm trying to use it like the smaller 6 or 8 port hubs that you can buy. Maybe its not possible but I thought it might be... but I can't seem to get it to work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
