Connecting multiple EZXS88W switches

I have one EZXS88W switch connected to my T1 ethernet. How do I connect two more of these swithches to this network? Which ports do I use for the connection? I can't seem to get the other two switches to work?

The normal configuration should be that you connect a cross over Ethernet cable from port 2 on the first switch to port 1 on the second which and so on.

What about the intial line from the T1? Does that go into the uplink port of switch #1? Also, if I use the uplink ports on switch #2 and #3, do I need a cross over cable?

Re: Connecting multiple EZXS88W switches

well...the initial line from T1 will go into one of the LAN ports of the switch ( not the uplink port ) ...and then connect a straight through cable from one of the RJ-45 ports of switch 1 to the uplink port of switch 2 ...however , using the uplink port will disable the port directly next to it , since the uplink port is a shared port...
