Stackable Fast Ethernet Hub with
8/12 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ports
Fast EtherHub Installation Manual
INTRODUCTION
General Description
The EH3008C and EH3012C 100BASE-TX 8/12 port stackable hubs
are entry level 100Mbps Fast Ethernet hubs. They are built around a
standard 19-inch chassis which allows stand-alone or rack-mounted
operation.
These 100BASE-TX 8/12 port stackable hubs are economical Fast
Ethernet hubs with 8/12 100BASE-TX (RJ-45) ports for workstation
connection. An uplink port in the front panel permits cascading to
another 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet hub (when the hubs are not
stacked), or to a Fast Ethernet switch.
The EH3008C and EH3012C are compatible with the IEEE 802.3u
standard. They are easy to install, no DIP switch to set and no software
to load. Just plug in the power cord and connect up to 8/12
100BASE-TX station ports.
The LINK/ACTIVITY and ERROR indicate status for each port. The
Collision and Power LEDs indicate status for overall system.

Hardware Description
The Front Panel
The front panel contains the 8/12 Shielded Twisted-Pair (STP) ports,
one uplink port, and LED indicators.
Shielded Twisted- Pair (STP) ports
Use any one of the STP ports for connection to a 100BASE-TX node
using Category 5 UTP cabling. Each of these ports provides 100Mbps
bandwidth for connection to a workstation or server.
UPLINK port
The uplink port provides cascading capabilities to a second
100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet hub (if the hub is not stacked).

LED indicators
The front panel LED indicators help you monitor the status of each port
and connected segments. There are 4 different LEDs on the front panel;
including power (PWR), collision (COL), LINK/ACTIVITY and ERROR.
This table lists the LEDs and their respective functions.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
Quick Installation Procedure
1.
Place the hub on a smooth surface or mount it on a rack.
2.
Connect power cord to hub and
plug in.
3.
Connect workstations to hub
using Category 5 UTP cabling.
? Plug an RJ-45 connector into any port on the hub (other than
the Uplink port), and plug the other end into the RJ-45 port on the
workstation’s Fast Ethernet card. Distance between the hub and
the workstation can be no more than 100 meters.
4. Connect each device (up to 8/12) on your network using the process
described in Step 3.
? Make sure you have the correct wiring
To reliably operate your network at 100Mbps, you must use
Unshielded Twisted-Pair (UTP) Category 5, or better, Data Grade wire.
While Category 3 or 4 wire may initially seem to work, it will soon
cause data loss.

Fast EtherHub Installation Manual
Select an Appropriate Location
A good location is at or near the center of all the computers you want to
link, close to the trunk segment and the other devices you want to
connect, and near a convenient power outlet.
? The cable route should not be near any power lines.
After you have decided on a particular location, you can place the hub
on the top of a table or a shelf, or mount it on a rack.
You may mount the hub on any EIA standard size 19-inch mounting
rack. First attach the supplied mounting brackets onto the sides of the
hub with screws. Afterwards, secure the hub onto the rack by screwing
on the mounting brackets.

Setting Up 100BASE-TX Stackable Hubs
1.
Put the 100BASE-TX stackable hub on the flat surface.
? Ensure the power is off before stacking the hub.
2.
Attach the power cord and turn on power to the hub.
3.
Connect one end of the D-Sub (25 pins) stack cable to the OUT
port on the first hub and the other end to the IN port on the next
hub in the stack.
? Do not connect OUT to OUT or IN to IN port on different hubs.
4.
Screw on the D-Sub (25 pins) connectors if necessary.
5.
Repeat steps 2-3 until all hubs are combined together in the stack.
You should have a simple chain starting at the OUT port on the
first hub, and ending at the IN on the last hub. You can stack up
to 4 hubs in this manner. Note that a stack acts as a single repeater
set.
?The hub’s backplane ports allow cascading only up to 4 hubs.

CONFIGURATION
Standard-Alone
The configuration of a simple stand-alone hub is illustrated as below.
The maximum distance between the hub and the workstation is 100
meters.

Fast EtherHub Installation Manual
Uplink Multiple Hubs
If you want to connect more than 8/12 ports, you can use the uplink
port to connect to another hub. In compliance with the IEEE802.3u
Class II specification, two repeaters can be cascaded using 5 meters of
cable in a single collision domain.
1.
Connect a Category 5 UTP cable to the UPLINK port (Port 8/12)
on the first hub.
2.
Connect the other end of the UTP cable to any of Ports 1 - 8/12 on
the second hub (i.e., do not connect it to the UPLINK port on the
second hub).
? You do not need crossover cable if you use the uplink port.
? Do not connect the uplink port (Port 8/12) on first hub to the
uplink port (Port 8/12) on the second hub.

Stacking Multiple Hubs
The 100BASE-TX stackable hub comes with stackable backplane port
for cascading up to 4 hubs. As your network grows, this stackable
feature allows you to add additional units for expansion. Depending on
the models used, you will be able to stack up to 32/48 ports. Note the
hubs follow Class I repeater standards when stacked.

TROUBLESHOOTING
This chapter contains information to help you solve problems. If these
hubs are not functioning properly, make sure they were set up
according to instructions in this manual.
If the hubs don’t connect to the network:
➊ Check the LINK/ACTIVITY LED lights on the front panel.
If the LINK/ACTIVITY LED isn t lit, check all connections at the
adapter and the hub. Make sure the adapter drivers are loaded.
➋ Try another port on the hub.
➌ Make sure the cable is installed properly.
The network cable must be securely attached at all connection points. If
the cable is properly attached but the problem persists, try a different
cable.
❹ Turn off the unit s power, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.

Other Important Tips
➀ Make sure no more than 100 meters of cable are used between the
hub and the desktop.
➁ Verify that the cabling type used is correct. (Category 5 UTP cable)
➂ Make sure the network adapter cards installed in the workstations
and cable connections are in good working condition.
➃ Hubs connected via the backplane ports cannot be cascaded via the
uplink port. When cascading hubs, limit the cascade to two hubs, and
limit the interhub cabling to 5 meters. In a two-repeater topology, the
maximum network diameter between end nodes is 205 meters.
