Typically, port 1 is used to connect router to router. If two router come off of one then ports 1 and 2 are used, and so on.
There is a single router with DHCP enable and the rest are disabled.
There is a single ip address range used, 50 IP address.
One with DHCP enable. All other disabled
We have a T1 line. an Adtran router accepts the 2 IP Trunks we have and a switch splits them for use. The main DHCP router is connected to that switch via the "internet" port.
with all that u have i see no reason why it should not work. everything is alright but i will suggest making the able lengths shorter than the 100 metres requirement as u cascade the devices along the way.
also since it works with a short cable, i suggest u test the long cable with a lan cable tester just to make assurance double sure that its crimpped properly.
what u are doing is just basic device cascading and so there should not be any much issues.
also i have found out that this simple technique helps attimes, simple crimp 1 end of the long ethernet cable STRAIGHT and crimp the other end CROSSED
and also check at the website of the manufacturer of the new router to see if there is any new firmware for the device and if yes, do an upgrade of firmware.
let me know what happened next.
