1. Prepare to Install the Adapter
Before installing the adapter, you should perform the following steps:
1. Observe antistatic precautions.
2. Verify product contents.
3. Record adapter identification information.
4. Gather tools and accessories.
Observe Antistatic Precautions
This product contains electronic components that can easily be damaged
by small amounts of static electricity. To avoid damage, follow these
guidelines:
• Store adapters in their conductive plastic bags until you are ready to
install them.
• If possible, work in a static-free area.
• Handle adapters only by the edges. Do not touch electronic
components or electrical traces. We strongly recommend that you use
a grounding wrist strap that is connected to the metallic chassis of
the computer. If you do not have a wrist strap, touch the chassis
before handling adapters, and frequently or continuously thereafter,
to equalize any static charge.

should refer to the manuals that apply to your particular computer for
instructions. Identify the following information:
• authorized or recommended adapter configurations and limitations,
if any
• how to access the computer’s adapter slot(s)
• proper orientation of the adapter in its slot
b. Select an available slot
Select an available HP-PB adapter slot. Remove the slot cover for that
slot. Refer to your computer system administrator’s documentation.
Retain the cover for possible future use.
Verify you can see an adapter connector at the back of the slot.
Record the slot number for future reference. If there are no other
adapters to install, reassemble the computer.

Attach the cable to the RJ-45 connector by following these steps:
a. Plug the cable into the RJ-45 connector.
b. Secure the other end of the cable to the 100VG-AnyLAN hub or
10Base-T hub/switch.
c. If necessary, reconfigure the hub/switch port to operate at the desired
speed and duplex settings.
NOTE
All of the LEDs on the adapter (except the Power LED) are initialized by
software when the link is started on the system. Therefore, until
software initializes the adapter, the state of the LEDs cannot be reliably
interpreted.

6. Verify Operation
Verify proper operation of the HP-PB 100VG-AnyLAN Network Adapter
by checking the LEDs on the card. When the computer is switched on,
the Power LED will come on. At this point, the rest of the LEDs are in an
uninitialized state, and cannot be used until the driver on the system has
been started. After the driver has been started, the following Table 1-1,
may be used to interpret the LED patterns.

Card LEDs
The 6 LEDs on the back of the card can be used to determine the state of
the adapter while the driver on the system is running.
NOTE
All of the LEDs on the card (except the Power LED) are initialized by the
driver when the link is started on the system. Therefore, until the driver
initializes the card, the state of the LEDs cannot be reliably interpreted.
The Power LED will be on at any time power is applied to the system. To
interpret the other LEDs, the driver must be running. The following

referred to as the ‘MAC frame”.
Packet is the more commonly used
term, and originated in the
Ethernet environment.
Precision Bus See HP-PB.
protocol The set of rules
governing the operation of
functional units of a
communication system that must
be followed if communication is to
be achieved.
medium, media The
transmission connection between
nodes. Most current LANs use

R
ring network A network
configuration where a series of
attaching devices are connected by
unidirectional links to form a
closed path.
ring topology A logically circular,
unidirectional transmission path
without defined ends. Control can
be distributed or centralized. See
topology.
RJ-45 A standard defining the pin
assignments for an 8-pin modular
plug for 4-pair twisted wire
network cable.
S
slot The physical place in the back
of the computer where a card plugs
in. Each slot has a number.
star topology A logically starshaped network layout where all
traffic is passed through a single
point (usually a hub). Hubs can
then be connected to form multiple
starts.
Station address A 12-digit
hexadecimal number that
identifies a specific network node,
and allows messages to be directed
36
to that node only. The first 6 digits
are the same for all cards from a
particular manufacturer. Each
manufacturer is assigned a
different 6-digit value. Then each
card produced by that
manufacturer has a different last
6 digits. This ensures that all cards
from all manufacturers have a
unique station address. HP
manufactures cards with the first
6 digits being 080009 or 0060B0. A
default value is permanently coded
into each card, but this default can
be overridden by the configuration.
T
token ring A network with a ring
topology that uses a token for the
purpose of establishing control.
Control of the network is passed
with the token from one network
device to another.
topology Topology can be physical
or logical. Physical topology is the
configuration of network nodes and
links; a description of the physical
geometric arrangement of the links
and nodes. Logical topology is a
description of the possible logical
connections between network
nodes indicating which pairs of
nodes are able to communicate
whether or not they have a direct
physical connection.
