Cable to daisy chain netgear unmanaged switches

We need to expand our in home wired network. Currently we have a single unmanaged netgear ethernet switch (GS105). We need to run a cable from that switch upstairs (~30 feet away), where we'll put  another switch to allow two-four connections. We likely will get another GS105 switch.

Question: Will we need a crossover cable between the existing switch and the new (upstairs) switch, or will a patch cable do?

Model: GS105|5 Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Re: Cable to daisy chain netgear unmanaged switches

A standard ethernet cable works fine. Nothing special needed. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
