Hosting Lan Party - Switch Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm planning on hosting a 10-16 people lan party at my house, and since most computers are desktops, I'm planning on just running a 100 foot cat6 cable to the table of computers and running two switches there. However, my question is, is it possible to just plugin two unmanaged switches to each other without having to worry about IP conflicting and we can all just connect to lan games without hassle?

My plan is.

Router - > 8 port switch - > 5 port switch
TP-LINK TL-WDR3600 - > Trendnet TEG-S80g - > GX1005B

Any remaining people will just connect wirelessly to the network.

Also any recommendations for lan games? We're planning on league, minecraft (lan server), TF2. Any games that support 10 or so people that we could all play?

That should work, just make sure there are no switching loops or you'll get a broadcast storm.

Auto MDI/MDIX will remove the requirement of having to use crossover cables.
