    Default Connection problem from Managed switch to un-managed switch

    The problem I am experiencing is that I have a network cable running from the main server room managed data switch to the back of a warehouse to another un-managed switch. If I plug my laptop directly into the cable at the rear of the warehouse it works fine and network connection is there. If I move the same cable from my laptop to the 2nd switch, and plug my laptop into the 2nd switch I cannot get a network connection. I have tried 3 different "2nd" switches so I don't see this as being the problem. Has anyone experienced this before? Could it be simply that I need to power cycle the main switch to refresh the Mac Address Table? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    thanks.

    did you make sure you gave the second switch an ip and subnet in the
    same range as the main switch

    No I didn't. I didn't think this was necessary for un-managed switches!! am I wrong?
