Placement options
English
Placing the switch on a flat surface
Place the GigaX1024 on a flat, stable surface. Make sure the location
meets the operating environment specification. See page 3 for details.
NOTE. The length of the UTP Category 5 cable length should not
exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
Mounting the switch on a rack
You may also mount the GigaX1024 switch on a rack with the supplied
mounting brackets and screws.
To mount the switch on a rack:
1. Locate three screw holes on both sides of the switch.
2. Align the mounting brackets with the switch screw holes.
3. Secure the mounting brackets with three screws on both sides of the
switch.
4. Place the switch in a 19-inch rack, then secure it with two rack mount
screws.
NOTE. The rack mount screws are not supplied.

Connecting network devices
English
To connect network devices to the GigaX1024 switch.
1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the switch
front panel. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port of the network
device. Repeat this step to connect additional network devices.
NOTES
•
Use Category 5 Ethernet straight-through cables to ensure proper
connections between the switch and other network devices.
•
You may use the switch Ethernet ports as an uplink to another
switch, hub, bridge or repeater. The switch is capable of detecting
and adjusting either cross-over or straight-through cables.
POWER
2. Plug one end of the power cable to the power connector on the switch
rear panel, then plug the other end to an electrical outlet.
3. The Power LED and LED indicators for active Ethernet ports light up to
indicate that the device is on and in use. Refer to the front panel
Label/LED table in page 4 for LED indications.

Troubleshooting
Problem
English
This troubleshooting guide provides answers to some common problems
which you may encounter while installing and/or using the ASUS
GigaX1024 switch. These problems requires simple troubleshooting that
you can perform by yourself. Contact the ASUS Technical Support if you
encounter problems not mentioned in this section.
Action
The POWER LED does not
light up.
Check if the power cable is properly
connected to the switch and to an
electrical outlet with a correct
voltage output.
The STATUS/SPEED LED
does not light up even after
an Ethernet cable is
connected.
• Check if the Ethernet cable is
properly connected to the switch
and to the network device.
• Make sure that the switch and
your network device are powered
on.
• Check if the Ethernet cable is
sufficient to your network
requirements. Make sure you
use Category 5 cables.
10Mbit/sec cables may work with
lower quality cables.
The COLLISION/DUPLEX LED
keeps blinking.
Collisions are occurring and are
reducing the network performance.
To solve this problem:
• Try replacing your UTP Category
5 cable with a new one.
• Check the cable length. The
cable length between the switch
and the network device must not
exceed 100m (328 feet).
NOTE. Some old network devices
may experience this problem.
