|It sound like you did it right. Some older/weird switches needed cross-over cables and had dedicated uplink ports (sort of like a hub) you could try to fidn the manual for the switch to see if this is the case, or you could jsut make a cross-over cable and see if that works. |
You may also want to check that the switch is good, is it getting power, etc?
