Aha!  I wanted to do this in the beginning, my extra switch has an
uplink-port on it, but the sireless linksys has non such uplink port. In
my experience if I connect the regular port of the linksys to the uplink
on the switch it won't work. As you have said though I may need to
re-crimp the cable into a x-over format. Cheers!!
