We are trying to setup our second floor with redundant Internet links as shown on the graph below. We have 2 cables from Floor 1 to Floor 2 my initial idea is to hook them and playing with STP priority ... any better ideas are greatly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was suggesting 4 cables from Floor 1 to Floor 2, it is good to have 4 cables as a best design.
if not you can use 2 cables to Straght to uplink switch rather cross ( Cross can also be done, but it is easy for your design wise.
I don't see how that is valid. See figure 9 in this link. This is your design. It requires 4 links.
But i have suggested vPC with picture modifies, also commented as below - this means, where possible you can implement vPC, where not possible you go traditional way - looks like this message gone in wrong way i was guessing..
"Both is possiblem depends in requirement, if vPC availble i prefer with vPC. so you can utilise the links 100%"
