Trunking Three 1810Gs

I am supplying an office floor via 3 HP 1810Gs (72 sockets).

The external feed is from a router.

Traditionally I'd feed the router into one of the switches (A) and jump a cable from it into the other two.

If I want to speed up the interswitch transfers I am better off bonding/trunking two cables from Switch A to Switch B and from Switch A to Switch C.

If this is correct am I also better off with bonding from B to C to complete the circuits.

Re: Trunking Three 1810Gs

I suspect that if you have A to B and B to C and C to A that spanning tree will disable one of those three paths. And if you don't have spanning tree running, you will simply create a loop and pain and suffering for your network.
