  • Gigabit "stacking" ports on DELL PowerConnect 3448 switch

    My Dell 3448 switch has 2 SFP ports and 2 Gigabit ports and they are labled as "for stacking", can I connect my database and web server NIC to this port?

    I tried and it seems to work, but I was wondering if there will be issues with it.

    I see most switches are only 10/100Mbps capable, except the stacking ports are gigabit, why they make a 10/100/1000 NICs then?

    Well stacking ports might require higher speed?
    I don't know if you can use them or not, but if you need a fast switch you can have a look at the Cisco 3750
    I believe there are 3750's out there with 10/100/1000 switch ports.
