Network - Switches and 10/100/1000

view story

http://hardforum.com – So I think we have a network bottleneck in our office - Our main servers are all interconnected to an 8 port DLink gigabit switch. However, the 8 port switch is connected to our backbone switch which is are 2 DLink DES-1024D, 24 port 10/100 switch. Servers --> 8 port switch --> DES1024D (1) (connected to another) --> DES1024D (2) Can I make multiple connections from the 8 Port Gigabit switch to the 1024D to theoretically multiply the server throughput to the rest of the network by x times the number of connections? Or should I connect the 8 port switch to both 24port switches sepa (Hardware)
