Network setup based on Nighthawk X10

Hello!
I want to setup my network. But I found something that I'm not sure about. In this config:
Netgear X10 connected to Netgear Managed Switch XS708E, and to this managed switch I want to connect two unmanaged ones in two rooms. I would connect devices to unmanaged switches. And the question is: could I see (and edit networking setting such as static LAN IP adress) devices connected to unmanaged switch in console of managed switch or router console?

Thanks in advance

   Sure.  Why not?  A tree of network switches serves to connect
multiple devices.  It does not determine how those devices are
configured.

   As usual, it might help if you would explain what you actually want
to accomplish (or the actual problem which you wish to solve), rather
than asking an abstract question which may be based on some fundamental
misconception.

   I don't know what that means.  "edit networking setting" on _what_,
_how_?

   Generally, devices which are connected to a tree of network switches
(managed or not) should be on one big LAN, and any connected device
should be able to communicate with any other connected device.

Edit network settings means:
I connect a NAS to unmanaged switch, that is connected to managed switch, that is connected to router. Could I make NAS LAN IP Static?

Thank you!
And what I want to do: I want to asign static IPs to all LAN devices. And to avoid many cables per room I'm going to use rack mounted managed switch and patch panel with 1 cable per room. In each room unmanaged switch from Asus to give all 8 possible clients per room 1 Gbps connection to the rack mounted RAID 5 NAS. Smiley Happy

   Adding network switches should not affect that plan.

   Do you mean true static addresses, or reserved dynamic addresses?
(I'm just curious.  Network switches shouldn't matter either way.)

   "Asus"?

Reserved leases.
And yes, Asus. XG U2008 to be precise. Seems to be perfect for pro-consumer use. Smiley Happy
