8. Troubleshooting
If your USB Cat5 Extender/Hub is not working properly, try the following:
• Make sure that the unit is connected to the included AC Adapter and plugged into a working power source
• Ensure that the Cat5e/6 cable connecting the Local and Remote Units does not exceed
150 ft. (45m)
• Ensure that none of the USB cables being used to connect a device to the USB Cat5
Extender/Hub are longer than 16 ft. (5m)
• Ensure that the Cat5e/6 cable is working properly by connecting it between two devices
you know work properly (e.g. connect a working computer to a live network and try
accessing the internet). If the Cat5e/6 cable does not work in this environment, try using
another Cat5e/6 cable.
• Ensure that the USB cable functions properly by connecting to a device that you know
works properly (e.g. plug a USB printer directly into a computer). If this does not work,
try using another USB cable.
• Ensure that the USB device you are plugging in works properly by connecting it to a
working device using a USB cable that you know works (e.g. connect a USB printer to
a working computer using a cable you know works). If this does not work, your USB
device may not be working properly.
• If none of these solutions resolves your issue, contact
Tripp Lite Technical Support at (773) 869-1234.
