To modify the existing switch connector, right click on the switch > Properties > Network, click on the connector, and then Edit. In the Port configuration window, it is possible to change the existing connector to another type (from the drop-down list):
Furthermore, changing the cable type between a switch and another device, can be done by either of the following illustrated way,
a) right click on the network connection/cable > Properties > Physical, and then select the "Cable Type" from the drop down list:
b) or via "Network Cable Browser", double click on the cable type > push the 'edit' button > and then select the cable type from the drop down list:
If there should be many connections needed to be corrected/changed, then I would choose the option b, namely via the "Network Cable Browser" - it would be much more faster.
Hope this helps, otherwise please feel free to comment.
