Installation is Complete!
Installation of the DUB-E100 is complete. The LINK LED should be solid green, indicating a good physical
connection between the DUB-E100 and the network. The TX/RX LED indicates when data is being
transmitted or received. If both LEDs are unlit, there may be a problem with the physical connection. Check
the cables between your DUB-E100, the computer, and the network. Verify that your network switch, hub, or
router is powered on.

Troubleshooting
1. Can I use my DUB-E100 on a USB 1.1 port?
The DUB-E100 will work on a USB 1.1 port but the transfer speeds will be limited to the limitations of
USB 1.1. If your computer does not have USB 2.0 ports, you can purchase an add-in USB 2.0 adapter
to add USB 2.0 functionality to your computer.
D-Link offers the following USB 2.0 adapters:
•
DU-520 (5 Port USB 2.0 PCI Adapter) for desktop computers.
•
DUB-A2 (2-Port USB 2.0 PCI Adapter) for desktop computers.
•
DUB-C2 (2-Port USB 2.0 Cardbus Adapter) for laptops computers.
2. Do I need to use a crossover cable or straight-through cable?
With most of D-Link’s switches/routers, the Ethernet ports are Auto MDI-II/MDI-X. This means the port
will auto-sense the cable type. Auto MDI-II/MDI-X ports may react differently if the Ethernet cable is not
properly pinned. If you make your own cables, it is very important that they follow the industry standard
pin-out (568A and 568B).
Computer connections to a hub, switch, or router typically use a straight-through cable. When connecting
a computer to another computer or to an uplink port then a cross-over cable is typically required. Rule of
Thumb: ”If there is a link light, the cable is right.”
3. How do I verify that my DUB-E100 is properly installed?
Windows
You can verify that the adapter has been properly installed in Device Manager:
• Right click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.
• For Windows 98SE and ME: Go to the Device Manager tab.
• For Windows XP, 2000, and Server 2003: Go to the Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager
button
• For Windows Vista: Click on the Device Manager item under the Tasks group.
• Expand the Network Adapters heading by clicking on the plus (+) sign next to Network Adapters.
• Right click on the My Computer icon and select Properties.
• The D-Link USB DUB-E100 should appear with a green and gold network adapter symbol.
If the D-Link USB DUB-E100 in device manager appears with a bright yellow exclamation mark or a red x,
please contact D-Link Technical Support.
Mac
1. Click the Apple icon on the task bar, select System Preferences and then click the Network icon.
2. You will find that a new Ethernet network interface is available. It’s usually named Ethernet Adapter
(en1) or Ethernet Adapter (en2).

Linux 2.6.x
To verify if the DUB-E100 driver is properly installed:
1. Load the DUB-E100 module by the following command:
[root@localhost linux2.6.14_rev101]# modprobe asix
2. List the loaded modules with the specified pattern “asix”:
[root@localhost linux2.6.14_rev101]# lsmod | grep asix
Then you should get the reply similar to the following lines:
asix
26880 0
usbnet 20616 1 asix
mii
9600 2 asix,e100
usbcore 114896 5 asix,usbnet,usb_storage,echi_hcd,uhci_hcd
If you still have problem on installing the D-Link USB DUB-E100 driver, please contact D-Link Technical
Support.
