Introduction
This switch provides 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports to offer an economical way for small to medium
business users to benefit from the increased bandwidth. It upgrades your network to Gigabit
connections has never been cost-effective. Also, it is perfect for graphics, multimedia, and other
applications that have to move large files across the network quickly.
The built-in powerful smart capabilities, such as VLAN, port-trunking, port mirror, empower
system administrator to monitor and control the network easily. With its intelligent addressing
engine, it provides users with a wire-speed filtering and forwarding of the traffic. All ports support
auto-uplink detection, so users don't have to worry about the cable type. Each port will
automatically communicate for best speed and to run in half- or full-duplex mode.

Preparing the Site
Select the site that meets the following requirements:
Characteristic
2.2
Requirement
Temperature
32 to 122˚F (0 to 50˚C)
Humidity
10% ~ 90%, non-condensing
Settling the Switch
Mounted to 19-inch standard rack
Locate the accessories provided in the product package. Use the rack-mount brackets and
screws to install the switch into any EIA 19” standard rack.
Step 1: Attach the brackets to each side of the chassis.
Step 2: Apply the screws to each side and secure them tightly.
Step 3: Carefully position the switch into the rack.
Step 4: Align the brackets to the side holes on the rack and use rack screws to secure the
chassis with the rack.
Desktop or any flat surface
The switch can sit on desktop or any flat surface with adequate space and ventilation. If
you want to place it onto a shelf, make sure the shelf can withstand the weight of the
switch.
Step 1: Simply put the switch on the desired place.
Step 2: Ensure the switch receives good ventilation.
Step 3: Proceed to the “Connecting to Power” section.
2.3
Connecting to Power
Locate the provided AC power cord.
Step 1: Connect the AC power cord to the receptacle at the back of the switch.
Step 2: Attach the plug into a standard AC outlet with a voltage ranging from 100 to 240
VAC.
Step 3: The power LED on the front panel will come on then.
2.4
Connecting to Network
Step 1: First, ensure the power of the switch (and end devices) is turned off.
L It may cause electric shock or any possible harm to you if the power is not switched off.
Step 2: Prepare cable with corresponding connectors for each type of port in use.
4
Step 3: Connect one end of the cable to the switch and the other end to a desired device.
Step 4: Once the connections between two end-devices are made successfully, turn on the
power.
In making a switch interconnection, you could use any port to connect another switch with
straight or crossover cable. As all the ports support auto-uplink (MDI / MDI-X) function,
using a straight cable to make a switch-to-switch connection is allowed.
For cable selection, refer to the following table:

Users can configure the switch in command line via console port. The operating mode of
the console port is
y
9600 (Fix baud rate)
y
n (No parity checking)
y

y
None (No flow control)
After attaching a RS-232 cable to the serial port of a PC running a terminal emulation
program, press “Enter” key then login screen appears. Enter your password to login the
configuration UI. The default password is “admin”.

Ports Configuration is applied to change the setting of each port. After pressing enter on the
port status on the main menu, the screen will show as below:
The [Port Config] menu includes:
z Admin:
Enable a port (On) or disable a port(Off).
z Port speed and duplex mode setting:
The modes for each port are: Auto, 1000Mbps Full duplex, 100 Mbps Full/Half duplex, 10
Mbps Full/Half duplex mode.
Note: If user configures it as a specific speed and duplex mode please make sure the other
port that the switch communicate with is also on the same speed and duplex mode.
The following table summarized the function the media supports.
Communication Mode

10Mbps at full duplex mode
10half
10Mbps at half duplex mode
z Flow control:
8
There are two modes to choose in flow control, including Enable and Disable. If flow
control is set Enable, both parties can send PAUSE frame to the transmitting device(s)
if the receiving port is too busy to handle. When it is set Disable, there will be no flow
control in the port. It drops the packet if too much to handle. Default: Enable.
3.5
VLAN Configuration
This 8-port Gigabit Smart Switch provides 8 port-base VLAN groups and each VLAN groups
could comprise 1-8 port.
You can select some ports into the same VLAN group by symbol “*”. If the packets come into
one port, which only belongs to one VLAN group, the packets just can be forwarded to other
ports of this VLAN group.
The VLAN setting: follow these steps to assign VLAN groups.
y
Move the [↑ ↓] to VLAN Group 1 ~ 8 column
y
Press [ENTER] to the desires group
y
Press [← →] to the desires port
y
Press [SPACE] to select and mark*to the desired port
y
Press [ENTER] to apply the setting
For example:
We set port-1, 3, 5, 6, 8 as VLAN1 and port-1, 3, 7 as VLAN2.
When one packet comes from port-1 or port-3, the packet could be forward to VLAN 1 and VLAN
2. It means only port-1, 3, 5, 6, 8 (VLAN1) and port-1, 3, 7 (VLAN2) will receive the packet. But
when packet comes from port-8, only port-1, 3, 5, 6, 8 (VLAN1) will receive the packet. On the
other hand, if one packet comes from port-2, only port-4 will receive this packet.

3.6
Trunk Configuration
This switch provides 2 trunk groups. Simply by press [Enter] key to enable Trunk groups. Port-1
and port-2 belong to “Trunk A”, port-7 and port-8 belongs to “Trunk B”.
For Example:
Simply by press [Enter] key to enter the mode and [Space Bar] to enable Trunk A or B
Press [ESC] to return to the previous item
Remark:
10
Mirror and Trunk functions cannot be enabled simultaneously. For example, when you activate
Port 1 Trunking Function, you cannot use Port1 for as Mirror port, neither source nor target port.
3.7
Port Mirror Configuration
The Smart Switch provides Mirror Configuration to snoop a specified port. Setup a monitored
port and monitored mode.
For Example:
Press [Enter] to enable the port mirroring,
Press [Tab] then [Enter] key to select the source port
Press [Tab] then [Enter] key to select the Target port
Press [ESC] to return to the previous item and continue, or save the configuration on save
menu.
If port-1 is “Source port” and port-8 is “Target Port”, all the packets come into port-1 will be
duplicated to port-8 where snooping PC allocates. Then system administrator could analyze the
packets with management tools.
Remark:
Mirror and Trunk functions cannot be enabled simultaneously.
3.8
