Installation Guide
USB extension up to 100m Cat 5 (or better) cable.
Before you can install the UEH4002, you need to prepare your site:
1. Determine where the computer is to be located and set up the computer.
2. Determine where you want to locate the USB device(s).
3. If you are using surface cabling, the UEH4002 supports a maximum distance of
100m.
OR
If you are using premise cabling, ensure Cat 5 cabling is installed between the two
locations, with Cat 5 information outlets located near both the computer and the USB
device(s), and the total length, including patch cords is no more than 100m.
Installing the Local unit
1. Place the Local unit near the computer.
2. Install the supplied USB cable between the Local and USB port on the host computer.
Installing the Remote unit
1. Place the Remote unit near the USB device(s) in the desired remote location.
2. Plug the power adapter into a suitable AC outlet.
3. Connect the power adapter to the Remote unit.
5
UEH4002 User Manual
Connecting the Local unit to the Remote
unit
Note: To ensure proper operation, it is recommended that only Cat 5 or better, Unshielded
Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling be used to connect the Local unit to the Remote unit. The
cabling must have a straight-through conductor configuration with no crossovers and
must be terminated with 8 conductor RJ45 connectors at both ends. The combined length
of any patch cords using stranded conductors must not exceed 10m.
With Surface Cabling
1. Plug one end of the Cat 5 cabling (not included) into the Link port (RJ45) on the Local
unit.
2. Plug the other end of the Cat 5 cabling into the Link port (RJ45) on the Remote unit.
With Premise Cabling
1. Plug one end of a Cat 5 patch cord (not included) into the Link port (RJ45) on the
Local unit.
2. Plug the other end of the patch cord into the Cat 5 information outlet near the host
computer.
3. Plug one end of the 2nd Cat 5 patch cord (not included) into the Link port (RJ45) on
the Remote unit.
4. Plug the other end of the 2nd patch cord into the Cat 5 information outlet near the
USB device.
Checking the Installation
1. On the Local and Remote units, check that the Power, Host, and Link LEDs are on
and that the Activity LED is blinking. If the Link LED is permanently off, then the
cabling between the Local and Remote unit is not installed properly or is defective.
2. For Windows users (2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7), open Device Manager to confirm
that the UEH4002 has installed correctly. Expand the entry for Universal Serial Bus
controllers by clicking the + sign. If the UEH4002 has been installed correctly, you
should find it listed as a “Generic USB Hub”.
3. For Mac OS X users, open the System Profiler to confirm that the UEH4002 has
installed correctly. In the left hand column under Hardware, select “USB” and inspect
the right hand panel. If the UEH4002 has been installed correctly, you should find it
listed as a “Hub” under the USB High-Speed Bus/USB Bus.
4. If the UEH4002 is not detected correctly or fails to detect, please consult the
Troubleshooting Guide.
Note: 1. To open System Profiler in OS X: Open the Finder, select Applications, then
open the Utilities folder and double click on the System Profiler icon.
2. To open Device Manager in Windows 2000 or XP: Right click “My Computer”
then select: Properties >> Hardware tab >> Device Manager.
3. To open Device Manager in Windows Vista or Windows 7: Open the Start
menu, right click on “Computer” then select: Manage >> Device Manager.

documentation for the USB device(s), as required.
2. Connect the USB device to the device port on the Remote unit.
3. Check that the device is detected and installed properly in the operating system.
Compatibility
The UEH4002 complies with USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 specifications governing the design of
USB devices. However, ATEN does not guarantee that all USB devices are compatible
with the UEH4002, as there are a number of different configurations that may impact the
operation of USB devices over extended distances.

Technical Glossary
Category 5 (Cat 5) Network Cabling
Category 5 cable is commonly also referred to as Cat 5. This cabling is available in either
solid or stranded twisted pair copper wire variants and as UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair)
or STP (Shielded Twisted Pair). UTP cables are not surrounded by any shielding making
them more susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI). STP cables include
shielding over each individual pair of copper wires and provides better protection against
EMI. Category 5 has been superseded by Cat 5e cabling which includes improved data
integrity to support high-speed communications.
USB Cables
USB cables have two distinct connectors. The Type A connector is used to connect the
cable from a USB device to the Type A port on a computer or hub. The Type B connector
is used to attach the USB cable to a USB device.
RJ45
The Registered Jack (RJ) physical interface is what connects the network cabling (Cat 5)
to the Local unit and Remote unit. You may use either the T568A scheme (Table 1) or the
T568B scheme (Table 2) for cable termination as the UEH4002 uses all four pairs of the
cable. RJ45 connectors are sometimes also referred to as 8P8C connectors.
