Ethernet, 100Mbps Fast Ethernet and 10Mbps Ethernet network capabilities in a highly flexible
package.
1.1
Purpose
This guide discusses how to install your freeConnect Smart 2420.
1.2
Terms/Usage
In this guide, the term “Switch” (first letter upper case) refers to your freeConnect Smart 2420, and
“switch” (first letter lower case) refers to Ethernet switches in general.

2 Introduction
This chapter describes the features of the freeConnect Smart 2420 and some background information
about Ethernet/Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet switching technology.
2.1
Gigabit Ethernet Technology
Gigabit Ethernet is an extension of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet utilizing the same packet structure, format,
and support for CSMA/CD protocol, full duplex, flow control, and management objects, but with a
tenfold increase in theoretical throughput over 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet and a hundredfold increase
over 10-Mbps Ethernet. Since it is compatible with all 10-Mbps and 100-Mbps Ethernet environments,
Gigabit Ethernet provides a straightforward upgrade without wasting a company’s existing investment
in hardware, software, and trained personnel.
The increased speed and extra bandwidth offered by Gigabit Ethernet is essential to coping with the
network bottlenecks that frequently develop as computers and their busses get faster and more users
use applications that generate more traffic. Upgrading key components, such as your backbone and
servers to Gigabit Ethernet can greatly improve network response times as well as significantly speed
up the traffic between your subnets.
Gigabit Ethernet enables fast optical fiber connections to support video conferencing, complex
imaging, and similar data-intensive applications. Likewise, since data transfers occur 10 times faster
than Fast Ethernet, servers outfitted with Gigabit Ethernet NIC’s are able to perform 10 times the
number of operations in the same amount of time.
In addition, the phenomenal bandwidth delivered by Gigabit Ethernet is the most cost-effective method
to take advantage of today’s and tomorrow’s rapidly improving switching and routing internetworking
technologies.
2.2
Fast Ethernet Technology
The growing importance of LANs and the increasing complexity of desktop computing applications are
fueling the need for high performance networks. A number of high-speed LAN technologies have
been proposed to provide greater bandwidth and improve client/server response times. Among them,
100BASE-T (Fast Ethernet) provides a non-disruptive, smooth evolution from the current 10BASE-T
technology. The non-disruptive and smooth evolution nature, and the large installed market base,
virtually guarantees cost-effective and high performance Fast Ethernet solutions.
100Mbps Fast Ethernet is a standard specified by the IEEE 802.3 LAN committee. It is an extension of
the 10Mbps Ethernet standard with the ability to transmit and receive data at 100Mbps, while
maintaining the CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol. Since the 100Mbps Fast Ethernet is compatible with all
other 10Mbps Ethernet environments, it provides a straightforward upgrade and takes advantage of
the existing investment in hardware, software, and personnel training.
2.3
VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network)
A VLAN is a group of end-stations that are not constrained by their physical location and can
communicate as if a common broadcast domain, a LAN. The primary utility of using VLAN is to
reduce latency and need for routers, using faster switching instead. Other VLAN uses include:
Security: Security is increased with the reduction of opportunity in eavesdropping on a broadcast
network because data will be switched to only the users within the same VLAN.
freeConnect Smart 2420 User’s Manual
Cost Reduction: VLANs can be used to create multiple broadcast domains, thus eliminating the need
of expensive routers.
Port-based (or port-group) VLAN is the common method of implementing a VLAN, and is the one
supplied in the Switch.

•
One freeConnect Smart 2420
•
One AC power cord, suitable for your area’s electrical power connections
•
Four rubber feet to be used for shock cushioning
•
Screws and two mounting brackets
•
CD-ROM with Web Management Utility and User’s Guide
If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.
3.2
Installation
The site where you install the hub stack may greatly affect its performance. When installing the unit,
consider the following pointers:
•
Install the Switch in a fairly cool and dry place. See Technical Specifications for the acceptable
temperature and humidity operating ranges.
•
Install the Switch in a site free from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors),
vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.
•
Leave at least 4” (10cm) of space at the front and rear of the Switch for ventilation.
•
Install the Switch on a sturdy, level surface that can support its weight, or in an EIA standard-size
equipment rack. For information on rack installation, see the next section, Rack Mounting.
•
When installing the Switch on a level surface, attach the rubber feet to the bottom of each device.
The rubber feet cushion the Switch and protect the case and surface from scratching.
3.3
Rack Mounting
The Switch can be mounted in an EIA standard-size, 19-inch rack, which can be placed in a wiring
closet with other equipment. Attach the mounting brackets to the switch’s front panel (one on each
side), and secure them with the screws provided (Figure 1).
Figure 1: Attach the brackets to the Switch
Then, use the screws provided with the rack to mount each switch in the rack (Figure 2).
freeConnect Smart 2420 User’s Manual
Figure 2: Mount the Switch in the rack
3.4
Connecting Network Cable
The Switch supports 1000Mbs Gigabit Ethernet that runs in Auto-negotiation mode and 10Mbps
Ethernet or 100Mbps Fast Ethernet that runs both in half and full duplex mode and 1000Mbps Gigabit
Ethernet runs in full duplex mode using four pair of Category 5 Cable (Category 5e Cable or better is
required for Gigabit Ethernet).
These RJ-45 ports support Auto-MDIX meaning that the Switch can automatically switch between
MDI-II and MDI-X types, allowing you to use any cable without worrying about whether it is a straightthrough or crossover RJ-45 cable.
3.5
AC Power
The Switch uses an AC power supply operating at 100-240V AC, 50-60 Hz. The power switch is
located at the rear of the unit adjacent to the AC power connector and the system fan. The switch’s
power supply will adjust to the local power source automatically and the unit can be turned on any
number of Ethernet cable connected to it.

freeConnect Smart 2420 User’s Manual
Figure 15: Port Setting Page
After clicking on a port number, the screen below (Figure 16) will open, allowing you to set the
Speed/Disable, Flow Control and QoS settings of the port.
Figure 16: Port Configuration
Speed/Disable:
This setting has six modes: 100M Full, 100M Half, 10M Full, 10M Half, Auto, Disable. The first four
allow you to manually set the speed and duplex, Auto sets the port to detect the connection type
automatically, and Disable shuts down the port.
Flow Control:
This setting determines whether or not the Switch will handle flow control. Select Enable to avoid data
transfer overflows. Select Disable to turn off flow control.
When the port is set to full duplex mode, the flow control will automatically be set to Disable. If the
port is set to half duplex mode, the flow control will automatically be set to Enable.
17
Ingress and Egress Rates:
This settings determines the port bandwidth control and works only when the port speed is set to Auto.
6.9.2 VLAN Settings (Virtual Local Area Network)
A VLAN is a group of ports which act as a small “virtual” network of their own, independent of the other
ports. This means that the broadcast domain is restricted to the computers within a VLAN, and
computers connected to different VLANs are unable to communicate with each other. The VLAN
Setting page displays the current VLANs on the switch (Figure 17).
Figure 17: VLAN Setting Page
To create a new VLAN group, click the “Add Group” button to open the new VLAN configuration
window (Figure 18). Enter a description for the VLAN, and select the ports to include in the VLAN.
Click “Apply” button to save the new VLAN.
To modify a VLAN, click on its ID number. In the new window, make the required modifications and
click “Apply”.
To delete a VLAN, click “Delete Group” to open a window which allows you to select a VLAN to
delete.
Figure 18: Creating a VLAN
6.9.3 Trunk Setting
The Trunk Setting page (Figure 19) allows you to create port trunks. Up to eight Fast Ethernet ports
and two Gigabit ports can be trunked resulting in 5.6 Gbps of bandwidth in full duplex mode.
freeConnect Smart 2420 User’s Manual
Note: Trunking will only work if the ports are connected to similarly trunked ports on
another Switch. There are three groups of ports that can be trunked together.
Group 1: Ports 1-12
Group 2: Ports 13-24
Group 3: Ports 25 and 26
For each group, you can select either to disable trunking, or trunk up to 4 ports per group (except
group 3).
Figure 19: Trunk Setting Page
If using VLANs, ensure that the ports being trunked together are in the same VLAN group.
6.9.4 Mirror Setting
Port Mirroring duplicates incoming and/or outgoing packets from one port to another port allowing a
network administrator to analyze the traffic on the network and make any necessary adjustments.
Configure port mirroring by assigning a source port from which to copy all packets and a sniffer port
where those packets will be sent (Figure 20).
Sniffer Mode: “Tx” (transmit) mode will duplicate the data transmitted from the source port and
forward it to the sniifer port. “Rx” (receive) mode will duplicate the data received from the source port
and forward it to the sniffer port. “Both” will duplicate all traffic to the sniffer port.
19
Figure 20: Mirror Setting Page
6.9.5 QoS Setting
The Switch supports two types of QoS, port-based and 802.1P-based. QoS stands for quality of
service, and is used for prioritizing packets which are sensitive to delays such as multimedia
streaming and VoIP (voice over IP) applications. For port-based QoS, select Port Based as the QoS
type, and select the priority to give packets from each source port (Figure 21).
Figure 21: Port-Based QoS Page
freeConnect Smart 2420 User’s Manual
For 802.1P-based QoS, select IEEE 802.1P Based as the QoS type, and select the priority to give
each 802.1P tag level (Figure 22).
Figure 22: 802.1P-Based QoS Page
6.10 Maintenance Settings
There are six items in the Maintenance Menu: Status, System, Trap, Password, Backup Setting,
Restore Setting.
6.10.1 Device Status
The Device Status page displays the current status of the device. It is the same page that is displayed
when you first log into the Switch (Figure 13). The screen shows the current System Status, Port
Status, VLAN Status, Trunk Status, Mirror Status, and QoS Status.
Click “Refresh” when you need to refresh the information.
6.10.2 System Setting
The System Setting page (Figure 23) allows you to change the System Name, Location Name, Login
Timeout, and the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway of the Switch. Through the Web
Management Utility, you can differentiate between multiple Switches by using the System Name and
Location Name.
The Login Timeout is the amount of idle time the administrator is allowed in the web interface before
being logged out automatically for security reasons.
Figure 23: System Setting Page
21
6.10.3 Trap Setting
The Trap Setting page (Figure 24) allows the device to monitor for events on the Switch, and send an
Event Trap to a computer on the network, which can be viewed and received using the Web
Management Utility described earlier in the manual. To enable traps, enter the IP Address of the
computer that will receive the traps, and select which types of events you want to receive.
Figure 24: Trap Setting Page
Device Bootup: a trap is sent when the system boots up.
Illegal Login: a trap is sent when someone is trying to log into the Switch using an incorrect
password. The IP address that is attempting to log into the switch is also reported.
Link Up/Link Down: a trap is sent when one of the fiber port links come up or go down.
6.10.4 Set Password
The Set Password page (Figure 25) allows you to change the administrator password. Be sure to
change this from the default immediately to prevent unauthorized access to the Switch.
If you forget the password, you will need to reset the Switch to factory defaults. To do this, press the
