The ports may auto detect, so that no explicit uplink port is required (e.g. every port can be an uplink port). If that's not the case, and if there is no uplink port, and no switch to change one of the ports from normal to uplink, you may have to use a "crossover cable".

I have the big brother, the GS124 24-port gigabit switch.
I don't see any uplink port. Just 16 ports numbered 1-16.
(My internet connection is dialup on the laptop, not something
from a router, so none fortunately is needed.)
I had a router serving as a switch, but ran out of ports. That one
used 192.168.1.100- I think, which is what the laptop firewall is
set for at the moment. I just left the uplink port empty on that.
