Check your adapter card. Is there a green network Link LED
on the 10, 100 or 1000 LED? If not, try connecting a "known
good" network cable between your switch and the
adapter.You should see a Link LED on your switch and your
network adapter. The maximum distance from any node
(computer, printer, hub, switch, etc.) is 328 feet or 100 meters.
Be sure your cable is not coiled, twisted or damaged. When
connecting the switch to a computer, be sure your Category
5 UTP cable is wired for straight-through; pins 1, 2, 3 and 6
should be matched pin-for-pin on both ends. Note that pins
3 and 6 must use the same twisted pair; these are typically
orange/white orange or green/white green.
Check your cable type. 10BaseT can use Category 3, 5 or 5"e"
cable; 100TX must use Category 5 or better cables; Gigabit
Ethernet must use Category 5"e" cables.
Check your uplink switch.When connecting to another hub
or switch, set the switch to uplink on only one hub/switch
and use a standard, straight-through network cable.This
switch may be connected to another 10/100 Mbps switch or
hub, but it will only run at 10 Mbps.

Safety and Regulatory Compliance
FCC Compliance Statement
This hardware device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: 1) this
device may not cause harmful interference, and 2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation. NOTE: This equipment has been
tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the
interference at his own expense. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If you
suspect this equipment is causing interference, turn your unit on
and off while your radio or TV is showing interference, If the
interference disappears when you turn the unit off and reappears
when you turn the unit on, something in the unit is causing
interference. You can try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures: 1) reorient or relocate the
receiving antenna; 2) increase the separation between the
equipment and the receiver; 3) connect the equipment to an
outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected; 4) consult the place of purchase or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Any
changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
