Hey guys, I have a very boring job, and my health is not good.  So I would like to hook up to the 
 
internet though work via a Cisco SG300-10MP via my laptop.  I have terrible digestive issues and am 
 
hungry all the time so it helps to have a good distraction.  The people there would not care to help 
 
me get hooked up, well they just don't care about us at all lol.  Other employee's use the work 
 
computer but I don't want to do that and don't want to cause the work station to have any issues,  
 
they are not supposed to do this either.  I also want to use it for work purposes, emails and such 
 
to my boss and co-workers.  I don't want to stream movies or anything like that just read some news articles.  So my question
 
is which Ethernet Port should I use.  There is 1-8 Ports(of which one is open) and then some other unfamiliar ports available.  
Can someone help?

The Cisco SG300 is and 8 port managed POE switch. If you have only one port open on the front that is the port you would use. The port may be turned off in the switch configuration.

Thanks a lot for the reply.  The one port that is open has no lights "ON", does this tell you that it is turned off in the switch configuration?

 

It looks as though I won't be able to connect if it is "Off"  Thanks, Chris

There wont be any lights on untill you connect a device to the port with a Ethernet cable.
