Troubleshooting Tips
In the unlikely event your network is not operating properly,
follow the troubleshooting tips below.
■
Check your adapter card. Is there a green network Link LED on the
10, 100 or 1000 LED? If not, try connecting a "known good"
network cable between your switch and the adapter.You should
see a Link LED on your switch and your network adapter. The
maximum distance from any node (computer, printer, hub, switch,
etc.) is 328 feet or 100 meters. Be sure your cable is not coiled,
twisted or damaged. When connecting the switch to a computer,
be sure your Category 5 UTP cable is wired for straight-through.
Note that pins 3 and 6 must use the same twisted pair; these are
typically orange/white orange or green/white green.
■
Check your cable type. 10BaseT may use Category 3 (or better)
cables. 100BaseTX may use Category 5 (or better). 1000BaseT may
use Category 5 (or better); Asante Certified Gigabit cables
(Category 5E) are recommended
IEEE 802.3u Fast Ethernet over 2 pairs of UTP Category 5
(100BaseTX).

Check your uplink switch.When connecting to another hub or
switch, set the switch to uplink on only one hub/switch and use a
standard, straight-through network cable. This switch may be
connected to another 10/100 Mbps switch or hub, but it will only
run at 10 Mbps.
Check your computer’s software. Check your operating system
manual for instructions on configuring your network for file and
print sharing.
