SuperStack® II Switch 1000BASE-T Module
(3C16978)
User Guide
INTRODUCTION
LEDs
The SuperStack II Switch 1000BASE-T Module provides a
Gigabit Ethernet module for the SuperStack II Switch
1100 (12 and 24 port), SuperStack II Switch 3300 (12
and 24 port), and SuperStack II Switch 3300 FX.
You can gather information about the status of the
module and its packet activity using LEDs on the front of
the Switch and on the module itself.
The module requires management software version 2.42
or later to be installed on the Switch. For instructions on
upgrading management software, refer to the
documentation supplied with your Switch.

INSTALLATION
AND
REMOVAL
WARNING: Installation and removal of the module must
be carried out by qualified personnel only. Before
installing the module into a unit, you must first
disconnect the unit from the mains power supply. For
full safety instructions, refer to the user guide that
accompanies the unit.
Installing the Module into a Switch
CAUTION: When a module is installed into a Switch, the
Switch can only support one port trunk, instead of two.
If you have two port trunks configured on your Switch,
remove the second one before installing the module. If
you do not remove the second port trunk, both port
trunks are automatically removed.
AVERTISSEMENT: Confiez l'installation et la dépose de
ce module à un personnel qualifié. Avant d'installer ce
module dans un groupe, vous devez au préalable
débrancher ce groupe de l'alimentation secteur. Pour
prendre connaissance des consignes complètes de
sécurité, consultez le guide utilisateur qui accompagne
ce groupe.
CAUTION: If the module replaces a 1000BASE-SX or a
1000BASE-LX module, all user settings are retained, with
the exception of auto-negotiation, which is always
enabled. If the 1000BASE-T module replaces any other
type of module, all user settings return to their default
values.
WARNHINWEIS: Die Installation und der Ausbau des
Moduls darf nur durch Fachpersonal erfolgen. Vor dem
Installieren des Moduls in einem Gerät muß zuerst der
Netzstecker des Geräts abgezogen werden. Vollständige
Sicherheitsanweisungen sind dem Benutzerhandbuch des
Geräts zu entnehmen.
1 Ensure that the Switch is disconnected from the mains
power supply and that you are wearing an anti-static
wristband connected to a suitable earth point.
2 Place the Switch on a flat surface. Using a suitable
screwdriver, remove the blanking plate from the rear of
the Switch. Do not remove any other screws from the
rear of the Switch.
WARNING: RJ-45 Port. This is a shielded RJ-45 data
socket. It cannot be used as a telephone socket. Only
connect RJ-45 data connectors to this socket.
Either shielded or unshielded data cables with shielded or
unshielded jacks can be connected to this data socket.
3 Keep the blanking plate and screws in a safe place. If
you remove the module at any time, you must replace
the blanking plate to prevent dust and debris entering
the Switch and to aid the circulation of cooling air.
AVERTISSEMENT: Le port RJ-45. Il s'agit d’une prise
femelle blindée de données RJ-45. Vous ne pouvez pas
l’utiliser comme prise de téléphone. Branchez uniquement
des connecteurs de données RJ-45 sur cette prise femelle.
4 Hold the module so that the text on the front panel is
upright, and insert it into the Switch, ensuring the
connectors are fully engaged. Tighten the two captive
thumbscrews securing the module.
5 Install the module:
Les câbles de données blindés ou non blindés, avec les jacks
blindés ou non blindés, l'un ou l'autre, peuvent être
branchés à cette prise de courant de données.
a Ensure that the Switch is turned on.
b Plug the RJ-45 connector on the cable into the RJ-45
socket on the module.
WARNHINWEIS: RJ-45 Ports. RJ-45-Anschluß. Dies ist
eine abgeschirmte RJ-45-Datenbuchsen. Sie kann nicht als
Telefonanschlußbuchsen verwendet werden. An diesen
Buchsen dürfen nur RJ-45-Datenstecker angeschlossen
werden.
c Connect the other end of the cable segment to a
device fitted with a 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet
connection.
6 Check the LEDs on the front of the Switch to ensure
that the module is operating correctly. Refer to “LEDs”
on page 1 for more information.
Dieser Datenstecker kann entweder mit abgeschirmten
oder unabgeschirmten Datenkabeln mit abgeschirmten
oder unabgeschirmten Klinkensteckern verbunden werden.
Removing the Module from a Switch
Handling the Module
1 Ensure that the power supply and connection cables are
disconnected from the Switch.
The module can be easily damaged by electrostatic
discharge. To prevent damage, observe the following:
2 Place the Switch on a flat surface. Undo the two captive
thumbscrews securing the module into the Switch. Do
not remove any other screws from the Switch.
„ Do not remove the module from its packaging until
you are ready to install it into a Switch.
3 If you are not fitting another module immediately, you
must replace the blanking plate to ensure that dust and
debris do not enter the Switch and to aid the circulation
of cooling air.
„ Do not touch any of the pins, connections or
components on the module.
„ Handle the module only by its edges and front panel.
„ Always wear an anti-static wristband connected to a
suitable earth point.
„ Always store or transport modules in anti-static
packaging.

MANAGING
THE
MODULE
The module requires management software version
2.42 or later to be installed on the Switch. For
instructions on upgrading management software, refer
to the documentation supplied with your Switch.
The Current Flow Control field in the Web interface
Support for the management software is supplied by
3Com Transcend® Network Control Services.
It is not possible to disable the auto-negotiation system
through either the Web or the Command Line Interface.
An error message is displayed if you try to disable
auto-negotiation on the module through the Command
Line Interface.
displays the method of flow control currently used by
the module port. If auto-negotiation is not yet
complete, Not Determined is displayed.
When the module is installed in a suitable Switch, the
Switch interfaces contain features to monitor the
auto-negotiation system specified in the IEEE 802.3
Ethernet standard. This system allows the module port
to automatically detect the flow control setting of a
Gigabit Ethernet link.
The module port has restricted functionality — for
details, see “Module Port Restrictions” below. As a
consequence, the Port Setup page for the port does not
contain all the standard listboxes.
MODULE PORT RESTRICTIONS
„ The port cannot be part of a port trunk.
When using the module port, note the following:
„ The port does not support VLT tagging.
„ The port only operates in full duplex.
„ You cannot create a resilient link pair that includes
the port and another port that uses VLT tagging.
„ The port only supports full duplex flow control in
symmetrical mode, as defined by the Gigabit
Ethernet standard. You cannot disable or alter this
mode.
„ You cannot disable auto-negotiation in the module.
„ You can only restart auto-negotiation using SNMP,
and not from the Web interface or from the
Command Line Interface.
„ The port only supports the Store and Forward
forwarding mode.
„ The port does not support PACE.
For information on other module port restrictions, refer
to the documentation supplied with your Switch.
„ You cannot manage the port using the Internetwork
Packet Exchange protocol (IPX).
PROBLEM SOLVING
If you suspect a problem, carry out these steps before
contacting your supplier:
„ Ensure that all connectors on the cable are correctly
engaged.
„ Ensure that the Switch in which the module is fitted
is turned on.
„ Ensure that the cabling installation conforms to the
Category 5 standard. A white paper which describes
this standard is available from the 3Com web site.
„ Ensure that the module is correctly installed in the
Switch.
For more general problem solving information, refer to
the documentation supplied with your Switch.
„ Ensure that the device at the far end of the link is
on and operating correctly.

where the non-compatibility is caused by a “bug” or defect in the third party's
product.
To qualify for this 90 days of telephone technical support, you must register on the
3Com Web site at:
http://support.3Com.com/index.htm
and provide your date of purchase, product number, and serial number. 3Com
