Can I connect the TE100-S16/24/32plus and another switch with two CAT 5 cables?
No, only one patch network cable is required to cascade 2 Switches together. You will create a network loop by cascading 2 Switches using 2 Cat. 5 cables. Network communication will cease to function immediately if a network loop exists. If you want to increase network performance between Switches, you will need to implement Switches that support port trunking such as the TEG-S2400i. Port trunking allows multiple links between 2 or more Switches.
