Placement options
English
Placing the switch on a flat surface
You may place the GigaX1024P/GigaX1024 on any flat surface. Make
sure the location meets operating environment specifications.
NOTE. The length of the UTP Category 5 cable length should not exceed 100
meters (328 feet).
Mounting the switch on a rack
Each side of the switch has 3 screw holes and two post holes for the
mounting bracket.
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 should have came with your server rack and are
not supplied by ASUS.

Connecting network devices
English
Follow these instructions to connect network devices to the switch.
The port on the switch can be used to uplink to another switch, hub, bridge
or repeater as an uplink port. Either crossover or straight-through can be
detected and adjust for the cable by the switch.
NOTE: Use Category 5 Ethernet straight-through cables to ensure proper
connections between the switch and other network devices.
NOTE: 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
crossover or straight-through cables.
1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the switch.
Connect the other end to the Ethernet port of the network device. Repeat
this step to connect additional network devices.

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 for LED indications.
4 For GigaX1024P only, you can install ASUS CNM in any Windows OS
and use CNM to manage the switch. For CNM details, please refer to
CNM manual in the CD-ROM. You also can download the CNM software
and manual from the ASUS website.

Troubleshooting
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.
Problem
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.
