INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the world of networking with 3Com® .
.
In the modern business environment, communication
and sharing information are crucial. Computer networks
have proved to be one of the fastest modes of
communication but until now only large businesses
could afford the networking advantage.
The OfficeConnect® product range from 3Com has
changed this, bringing networks to the small office.
The OfficeConnect Hub TP400, TP800, and TP1200 are
ideal for creating small, fast (high bandwidth) networks.
They are compact and attractively designed for desktop
use. These products are part of the OfficeConnect range,
which neatly stacks together with clips, providing a host
of facilities. For information on this product range, refer
to the accompanying OfficeConnect Product Range
sheet.
Small Network Featuring OfficeConnect Hub TP400 and Server
If you need to connect more workstations, simply
connect and clip another OfficeConnect hub to form a
stack (each hub is a single Class II repeater).
When referring to all three products, this guide uses the
term ‘OfficeConnect hub’.
This guide helps you get the most out of your
OfficeConnect hub.
The OfficeConnect hub is a Fast Ethernet (Class II)
repeater, allowing the creation of a network that runs 10
times faster than standard Ethernet. You can connect a
workstation, server or other piece of equipment to each
100BASE-TX port, as shown in the diagram. The TP400
has four 100BASE-TX ports, the TP800 eight, and the
TP1200 twelve.

CREATING YOUR NETWORK
Networking Terminology
A Network Loop occurs when two pieces of network
equipment are connected by more than one path. Your
hub detects this and Partitions one of its ports to break
the loop.
A Network is a collection of workstations (for example,
IBM-compatible PCs) and other equipment (for example,
printers), connected for the purpose of exchanging
information. Networks vary in size: some are within a
single room, others span continents.
A Segment is the length of cable connected to a port.
Packets are the units of information your workstations and other
equipment send to each other over the network.
A Local Area Network (LAN) is a network, usually in an office,
that spans no more than a single site.
Collisions are a part of normal Fast Ethernet operation and
occur if two or more devices (pieces of network
equipment) attempt to transmit at the same time.
A sudden sustained increase in the number of collisions
can indicate a problem with a device, particularly if it is
not accompanied by a general increase in traffic.
Ethernet is a type of LAN, referring to the technology used to
pass information around the network.
Fast Ethernet is a type of LAN that runs ten times faster than
standard Ethernet.
10BASE-T is the name given to the Ethernet protocol that runs
over Twisted Pair (TP) cable.
100BASE-TX is the name given to the Fast Ethernet protocol
that runs over Twisted Pair (TP) cable. The
OfficeConnect hub uses TP cable with RJ45 type
connectors.

secure one side:
Workstation Connections
To connect workstations and other equipment to your
hub, you need:
1
A 100BASE-TX adapter card
for each workstation.
3Com produce a range of
easy to install network
adapters that provide your
workstations with
100BASE-TX connections.
2
An operating system with network support configured,
running on your workstations.
3
One ‘Straight-through’ 100BASE-TX cable for each
workstation or piece of equipment.
A ‘Straight-through’ cable is one where the pins of one
connector are connected to the same pins of the other
connector; refer to the diagram in the “Problem
Solving” section. 100BASE-TX cable must be data grade
(Category 5) shielded or unshielded. We recommend
that you use shielded cable. The maximum length you
can use is 100m (328ft).
In order to comply with the 100BASE-TX standard,
ports designed for workstation connections have been
marked with the graphical symbol ‘x’ (1x, 2x, 3x, ...).
This denotes a crossover in the port’s internal wiring.
1
Place the first
unit on a flat
surface. Use the
holes shown in
the diagrams:
2
Position a clip over
one of these holes
and push it in until it
clicks into place.
Repeat this for the
other clip position on
the same side.
3
Keeping the front of
the units aligned,
rest the bottom of
the second unit on
the clips’ spikes.
Push the clips firmly
into the second unit
until they click into
place.
Hub Connections
To connect to another OfficeConnect hub, you need:
Q
One ‘Straight-through’ 100BASE-TX cable. The maximum
length is 100m (328ft). Refer to the “Connecting
OfficeConnect Hubs Together” section.
Positioning Your OfficeConnect Hub
When installing your OfficeConnect hub, ensure:
Q
Q
Q
Q
It is out of direct sunlight and away from sources of
heat.
Cabling is away from power lines, fluorescent lighting
fixtures, and sources of electrical noise such as radios,
transmitters, and broadband amplifiers.
Repeat these steps to secure the other side.
Water or moisture cannot enter the case of the unit.
To remove a clip, hold the units firmly with one hand
and hook the first finger of your other hand around the
back of the clip. Use reasonable force to pull it off.
Air flow around the unit and through the vents in the
side of the case is not restricted. We recommend a
minimum of 25mm (1in.) clearance.

Wall Mounting the OfficeConnect Hub
Connecting OfficeConnect Hubs Together
There are two slots on the underside of the
OfficeConnect hub which are used for wall mounting.
You can mount the hub with the LEDs facing upwards
or downwards. You need two suitable screws. Ensure
that the wall you are going to use is smooth, flat, dry,
and sturdy.
You can increase the number of workstations that can
connect to your network by adding another
OfficeConnect hub.
You can directly connect together a maximum of two
Fast Ethernet hubs. The total length of cable (A + B + C
below) between two workstations, or between a
workstation and a non-repeater piece of equipment
(such as a switch), must not exceed 205m (672ft). Each
cable (A, B or C) must not exceed 100m (328ft).
When wall mounting your hub, ensure that it is within
reach of the power outlet.
Q
Q
For TP400 or TP800: Make two screw holes 150mm
(5.9in.) apart. Use the guide at the top of page 3 to
mark the position of the holes.
3Com recommends that the cable (B) between the Fast
Ethernet hubs is no longer than 5m (16.4ft). This allows
the maximum hub to workstation cable length (A or C)
of 100m (328ft) to be used, as shown in the example.
For TP1200: Make two screw holes 142mm (5.6in.)
apart. Use the guide at the top of this page to mark the
position of the holes.
Fix the screws into the wall, leaving their heads 3mm
(0.12in.) clear of the wall surface.
Remove any connections to the hub and locate it over
the screw heads. When in line, gently push the hub on
to the wall and move it downwards to secure. When
making connections, be careful not to push the hub up
and off the wall.
CAUTION: Only wall mount single hubs. Do not wall
mount stacked hubs.
Connecting Workstations and Other
Equipment to Your Hub
WARNING: Ensure you have read the Important Safety
Information section carefully before you start.
Connecting 100BASE-TX Hubs
You can connect two OfficeConnect hubs together with
100BASE-TX in a number of ways, but for simplicity we
recommend the following method:
ACHTUNG: Versichern Sie sich, daß Sie den Abschnitt
mit den wichtigen Sicherheitshinweisen gelesen haben,
bevor Sie das Gerät benutzen.
AVERTISSEMENT: Assurer que vous avez lu
soigneusement la section de L’information de Sécurité
Importante avant que vous commenciez.
CAUTION: Do not power the hub off and on quickly.
Wait about 5 seconds between power cycles.
1
Connect the highest-number port (port 4 on TP400,
port 8 on TP800, port 12 on TP1200) of the lower hub
to any port of the upper hub.
2
Set the MDI/MDIX switch on the lower hub to MDI (in).
If you use the highest-number port of the upper hub
ensure that its MDI/MDIX switch is set to MDIX (out).
Connecting workstations and other equipment to your
hub is easy. Connect them using 100BASE-TX cables to
any of the hub’s 100BASE-TX RJ45 ports.
100BASE-TX cables are very easy to use. To connect a
100BASE-TX cable, simply slot the connector into the
relevant RJ45 port. When the connector is fully in, its
latch locks it in place. To disconnect the cable, push in
the connector’s latch and remove it.
The hub detects all port connections, so you can start
using your network immediately. When you need more
ports, simply add another OfficeConnect hub.
If you are using the highest-number port (port 4 on
TP400, port 8 on TP800, port 12 on TP1200) to
connect a workstation, ensure the MDI/MDIX switch is
set to MDIX (out).

Powering Up and Checking Connections
The Alert LED is not lit — this is the best way to find out
if there are problems with your network
Case vents are not obstructed
Cabling is secure and not pulled taut
When you have connected your hubs, power them on.
The Port Status LEDs for the ports you have used should
be green. If they are not, check your connections.
PROBLEM SOLVING
Q
The OfficeConnect hub has been designed to aid you
when detecting and solving possible problems with your
network. These problems are rarely serious — the cause
is usually a disconnected or damaged cable, or incorrect
configuration. If this section does not solve your
problem, contact your supplier for information on what
to do next.
You are using a ‘Straight-through’ 100BASE-TX cable
that is properly connected at both ends, and is not
damaged. Refer to the diagram below to compare the
wiring of a straight-through and a crossover cable.
Perform these actions first:
Q
Q
Ensure all equipment is powered on.
Power each hub off, wait about 5 seconds and then
power them on.
Check the following symptoms and solutions:
Power LED not lit. Check your power adapter
connection. If there is still no power, you may have a
faulty power adapter which needs replacing with
another OfficeConnect power adapter. Do not use any
other power adapter with the hub.
Straight-through Cable
Port Status LED yellow. It is likely that there is a loop
in your network which has caused this port to partition.
Examine your connections and remove the loop. Each
piece of equipment needs only one connection to your
OfficeConnect hub.
Alert LED continuously lit. There is either continual
excessive use of your network (over 80%) or, more likely,
a port has partitioned due to a loop in your network
(in which case the corresponding Port Status LED will be
yellow). Examine your connections and remove the
loop. Each piece of equipment needs only one
connection to your OfficeConnect hub.
Link between two OfficeConnect hubs not working.
Check your hub connections; follow the information
given in the “Connecting OfficeConnect Hubs
Together” section. It is likely that an MDI/MDIX switch is
incorrectly set.
Port Status LED not lit for a port that has a
connection. There is a problem with this particular
connection. Check that the equipment connected to
the hub is powered on, operating correctly, and
contains a 100BASE-TX connection. The hub can be
directly connected only to equipment that can
provide a 100Mbps connection (not 10Mbps only).
In particular, ensure that:
Q
Q
Crossover Cable
Workstation connection not working. Check that you
are using a 100Mbps adapter in your workstation. If
your adapter can operate at various speeds, ensure that
it is set to operate at 100Mbps.
You are using a 100Mbps adapter in your workstation,
if connecting a workstation to the hub. If your adapter
can operate at various speeds, ensure that it is set to
operate at 100Mbps.
Any 10Mbps equipment that you want to link to the
hub, is connected through a 10/100 hub or switch.
