5/8 Port 10/100Mbps Nway Fast Ethernet Switch User Manual | Manualzz

Chapter 1:

Introduction

This newly redesigned 5Port and 8Port 10/100 Switch can significantly increase your network traffic speed. A switch serves the same function as a hub in a network design tying your network equipment together. But unlike a simple-minded hub which divides the network’s bandwidth among all the attached devices, a switch delivers full network speeds at each port. Installing this cost-effective

5Port and 8Port 10/100 Switch can potentially increase your network speed by five, eight times! It's the perfect way of integrating

10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet devices, too. All ports are auto speed negotiating, and have automatic MDI/MDI-X crossover detection, so you don’t have to worry about the cable type.

Each port independently negotiates for best speed and half- or full-duplex mode, for up to 200Mbps of bandwidth per port. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on into the network.

The new, ultra-compact case design is sure to fit into your workgroup environment. Let the 5, 8Port 10/100 Switch kick your 10/100 network into high gear.

Hardware Installation

z

z

z

Connect the output of power adapter to the DC-inlet of the

Switch.

Connect other IEEE802.3 compatible network device(Hub ,Switch ,PC) to one port of the Switch using

Category 3/4/5 UTP/STP cabling.

Connect another IEEE802.3 compatible network device (Hub ,

Switch ,PC) to another port of the Switch by following the same process as described in Step3.

Notice:

The cable distance between the Switch and other IEEE802.3 compatible network device should not exceed 100 meter.

Make sure the wiring is correct

It can be used Category 3/4/5 cable in 10 Mbps operation. To reliably operate your network at 100Mbps, you must use an

Unshielded/shielded Twisted-Pair (UTP/STP) Category 5 cable, or better Data Grade cabling. While a Category 3 or 4 cable may initially seem to work, it will soon cause data loss.

All kinds of IEEE802.3 compatible network device (Hub ,

Switch ,PC)can connect to the Switch by using straight-through wires or crossover wires because of Switch’s auto MDIX function.

Hardware Troubleshooting

This chapter contains information to help you solve problems. If the

Switch is not functioning properly, make sure the Switch was set up according to instructions in this manual.

1. The Power LED is not lit

Solution: a. Check if the DC power adapter is well connected.

Try to unplug and plug back the power adapter to the LAN Switch or try another power adapter. b. Check if the DC power source is in good condition.

2. The Link LED is not lit

Solution: a. Make sure the Switch configuration is consistent with the connecting device b. Check the cable connections. c. Make sure the cable distance between the Switch and other IEEE802.3 compatible network device should not exceed 100 meter.

3. Performance is bad

Solution: a. Check the full duplex status of the Ethernet

Switching. If the Ethernet Switching is set to full duplex and the partner is set to half duplex, then the performance will be poor. b. Make sure the cable between the switch and other

IEEE802.3 compatible network device is Category

5 UTP at 100Mbps operation.

4. Some stations can not talk to other stations located on the other port

Solution: a. Check status of the Link LED to make sure the link is correct. b. Make sure that the workstation’s network configuration is correct, modify the network configuration of workstation if need. c. Please reset the switch if need.
