I have been charged with the task of adding a switch to a network. There are ethernet jack points at each workstation and each of these go back to a network cabinet. Apparently to make the connections live I need to add a switch.
Where can I find a tutorial that will quickly get me up to speed with this sort of networking?

This intermittent fault on our small company network makes me bang my head on the wall. Metafilter: help me troubleshoot this annoyance.
Roughly once a day at no particular time I get the classic windows 'A network cable is unplugged' balloon appear on my desktop. About 50% of the time, this affects the rest of the 20-odd staff in the office and at least one person will lose some work due to application failure or somesuch. [more inside]

I have 4 Gigabit switches for my network and one 10/100 router. Can/should I hook each switch up to the router and then also plug each switch into each other switch to improve internet performance while still maintaining Gigabit on my LAN?
