HP AdvanceStack Hub-16U
At A Glance
The HP J2611B AdvanceStack Hub-16U is a multiport repeater with 16
twisted-pair network ports. With this hub, you can connect computers and
other devices together in an unshielded twisted-pair cable network. The hub
is compliant with the IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard and supports both
802.3 and Ethernet networks.

Features
Network Connections
16 RJ-45 (twisted-pair) ports to connect to end nodes or other devices.
A Media Dependent Interface (MDI) switch for Port 16 which allows you to
connect either an end node (MDI-X position) or to cascade a hub (MDI position)
to the port, using a “straight-through” twisted-pair cable in both cases.
Upgradeable Design
A management slot in the back of the hub enables you to install an HP
AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module. With the module, you can serially
connect an ASCII console to the module to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot
the hub.
An AUI/Xcvr Slot in the front of the hub for several types of transceiver modules
including ThinLAN, AUI, twisted-pair, and fiber-optic. With the optional ThinLAN
transceiver, you can “hot-swap” a hub. Hot-swap means that removing a hub
connected to other hubs through the ThinLAN transceiver does not bring down
the network; you can upgrade or replace hubs in a stack with the network up
and running. All modules with an external transceiver allow you to connect to
an Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 LAN. The twisted-pair module adds another RJ-45 port
for a total of 17 twisted-pair ports on the hub. The fiber-optic module allows you
to connect your hub to a fiber-optic backbone.
Modular, Easy-to-Use Design
LEDs showing power, activity, collisions, and port status provide quick, easy-toread hub status information and troubleshooting assistance.
Metal brackets (included with the hub) that can be easily attached to the hub
for mounting the hub in a standard 19-inch telco rack or on a wall.
Standards-Based Compatibility
Compatible with the IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard to support both 802.3
and Ethernet networks.

2. Verify the hub’s operation
To provide power to the hub, follow these steps:
1. Plug the power cord into the hub’s power cord receptacle and into an
ac power source.
Note
If your installation requires a different power cord than the one
supplied with the hub, be sure to use a power cord displaying the
mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power
cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power
cord can be used safely with the hub.
Power receptacle

Note
1-6
The hub does not have a power switch; it is powered on when the power
cord is plugged in.
Installing the Hub
2. Check the LEDs on the hub’s front panel.
Installing the Hub
When the hub is powered on, it performs a self-diagnostic test.
During the test, all of the hub LEDs are lit for approximately 3
seconds.
When the self-test completes successfully, the following events occur:
•
the Power LED stays on
•
the twisted-pair Port LEDs enter their normal operating state
•
If an HP Transceiver module is installed, the AUI/Xcvr LED will
display the state of that port
A Port LED stays on if link beat has been detected at the port. A Port
LED turns off if link beat is not detected. If you have an optional HP
AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module installed, the Port LEDs have
additional meanings. See the documentation accompanying the
module for more information. If all of the Port LEDs stay on after 3
seconds and you have not connected end nodes to these ports, the
hub has failed its self-test. See chapter 2, “Troubleshooting” for
information about diagnosing your hub.
3. After the hub has passed its self-test, you are ready to mount the hub.
Before mounting the hub, unplug it.
1-7
Installing the Hub

3. Mount the hub
The HP AdvanceStack Hub-16U can be mounted in three ways:
in a rack or cabinet
on a wall
on a table
The hardware for mounting the hub is included in the accessory kit
(5063-5995) packed with the hub. If you are mounting the hub to a wall, use
the four 5/8-inch number 12 wood screws in the accessory kit.
Hewlett-Packard sells 19-inch free standing equipment racks. To order a rack
for your hub, call HP at 1-800-538-8787 to order part number 46298D.
Mounting
Precautions
Before mounting the hub, follow these mounting precautions:
Plan the hub’s location and orientation relative to other devices and
equipment. Also consider the cabling that will be attached to the hub
and ports that will be used. In the front of the hub, leave 3 inches
(7.6 cm) of space for twisted-pair cables. In the back of the hub,
leave 3 inches (7 cm) of space for the power cord, the 8U/16U SNMP
module, and a serial cable.
Ensure that the HP AdvanceStack hub(s) do not overload the power
circuits, wiring, and over-current protection. To determine the
possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add together the
ampere ratings from the nameplates of all your hubs (and other
equipment) installed on the same circuits and compare the total with
the rating limits for the supply circuits.
Make sure that the power source circuits are properly grounded,
then use the supplied power cord to connect the HP AdvanceStack
hub to the circuit. See the Safety Statements at the end of this
manual.
Do not install the HP AdvanceStack hub in an environment where
the operating ambient temperature might exceed 55°C (131°F).
Make sure the air flow around the sides and back of the hub is not
restricted.

Cable management
The Hub-16U has been designed to help you with the problem of managing
your network cables. Each mounting bracket has a loop hole for attaching
an included cable tie to bundle the twisted-pair cables away from the hub.
1-12
Installing the Hub
Connecting Hubs Together
To expand your network, the hub can be connected to other hubs by using
the Media Dependent Interface (MDI) switch.
The MDI/MDI-X switch controls how the signals are sent through the
twisted-pair cable connected to Port 16. The hub is shipped with the switch
in the MDI-X position. The switch is a push/push switch with two positions:
In the MDI position, use Port 16 to connect your hub to another
hub. In this position, the hub reverses the Tx and Rx port pairs for
you. This allows you to use “straight-through” cable rather than
“cross-over” cable to connect two hubs together. The cable can be
up to 100 meters in length. In the MDI position, the switch is
exposed by 0.06 inches (1.5 mm) in front of the bezel.
In the MDI-X position, use Port 16 to connect your hub to a PC or
similar device using “straight-through” cable. In the MDI-X position,
the switch is exposed by 0.2 inches (5 mm) in front of the bezel.
MDI/MDI-X
switch
Caution
You must disconnect the device connected to Port 16 before changing
the position of this switch. If you push the MDI/MDI-X switch and
change its position while your network is running, the hub or PC
connected to Port 16 will be disrupted. To restore your network, push
the MDI/MDI-X switch in again.

Troubleshooting
This chapter describes how to diagnose and resolve operating problems with
your hub.
Additionally, if you have a HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module installed,
you can use ASCII console software for certain diagnostic functions to
troubleshoot the hub.
Troubleshooting Approaches
Troubleshooting
There are three primary ways to diagnose hub problems:
By checking the LEDs on the front of the hub as described in
“Diagnosing with the LEDs” later in this chapter.
By visually inspecting the unit and all its connections as described in
the “Installation Problems” and “Cabling Problems” sections later in
this chapter.
By using the ASCII console’s diagnostic functions as described in the
documentation shipped with the HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP
Module or HP Interconnect Manager, and in the software’s online
help system.
2-2
Troubleshooting
Diagnosing with the LEDs
Most problems with the hub can be diagnosed using the LEDs on its front
panel. This section describes the normal LED pattern during self-test, and
LED patterns that indicate error conditions on the hub.
LED Pattern During Self-Test
If an HP Transceiver module is properly installed, the AUI/Xcvr LED stays
lit. If an HP Transceiver module is not installed, the AUI/Xcvr LED turns off.
When the self-test completes successfully, the LEDs go into their normal
operational states. If a hub hardware fault exists, the hub will not complete
self-test. This will be indicated by an abnormal LED pattern.
The display of the Port LEDs depends on whether the HP AdvanceStack
8U/16U SNMP Module is installed. If you have an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U
SNMP Module installed, see the manual provided with the module for LED
information.
The tables on the following two pages list the hub’s LEDs, their possible
states, and diagnostic tips to resolve any error conditions. These tables
assume an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module is not installed.
2-3
Troubleshooting
Whenever the hub is powered on or reset, it performs a self-diagnostic test.
During the self-test, all of the hub LEDs turn on for approximately three
seconds.

Troubleshooting
Installation Problems
By carefully following the installation procedures described in chapter 1,
“Installing the Hub”, you can avoid most problems caused by improper
installation of the hub or one of its components.
Incorrect Hardware Installation
Troubleshooting
Incorrectly installing the hub, power cord, the HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U
SNMP module, or a transceiver module can result in one or all of these
components malfunctioning or not functioning at all. If one or all of these
components appear to not be functioning, re-check the installation
procedure and, if necessary, re-install the component correctly.
Cabling Problems
A high percentage of network problems are due to faulty cabling. Cabling
problems usually result in the failure of a hub to connect to a network,
another hub, or the end nodes.
Connections
All cables attached to the hub should be checked to see that they are
properly connected. Proper network connections are described in chapter 1,
“Installing the Hub”.
Properly connecting cables to the transceiver modules is described in the
documentation that accompanies those modules.
If you are using the optional HP ThinLAN Transceiver Module, be certain the
thin coax segment attached to the port is properly terminated with a 50-ohm
terminator at both ends, as described in the manual accompanying the
transceiver module.
2-6
Troubleshooting
Non-standard Cables
Mis-wired cables may cause numerous network collisions, and can seriously
impair network performance. Before connecting cables into your network,
you should verify that they comply with the applicable standards. For a list
of compatible cables and a description of the pinouts for each port on the
hub (which can be used to confirm the compatibility of unlisted cables), see
appendix A, “Cables and Connectors”.
Topology
Unusual Network Activity
Network activity that exceeds accepted norms often indicates a hardware
problem with one or more of the network components, possibly including
the hub. Unusual network activity is usually indicated by the LEDs on the
front of the hub or measured with one of the diagnostic tools in the ASCII
console software. Refer to “Diagnosing with LEDs” earlier in this chapter
for information on using LEDs to identify unusual network activity.
Diagnostic Tests
If you have an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP module installed into the
hub, the ASCII console software or HP Interconnect Manager provides tests
and indicators that can be used to monitor the hub and its network
2-7
Troubleshooting
It is important to make sure you have a valid network topology. Common
topology faults include excessive cable length and excessive repeater delays
between nodes. If you have trouble after recent changes to a network,
switch back to the previous topology. If you no longer have any trouble, the
new topology is probably at fault. Refer to the guide entitled Designing
HP AdvanceStack Workgroup Networks for topology configuration
guidelines. Contact your HP-authorized LAN dealer or local HP sales office
to get a copy of this guide.
Troubleshooting
connections. See the documentation shipped with the HP AdvanceStack
8U/16U SNMP module and the software’s online Help system for more
details about these tests and indicators.
Testing the Hub Only
If you believe that the hub is not operating correctly, you can test the hub’s
circuitry by resetting the hub through one of these procedures:
Unplug the power cord from the hub and plug the power cord into
the hub again.
Troubleshooting
If an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP module is installed, select the
“Reset” option from the ASCII console.
Each of these procedures will power-cycle the hub and execute its self-test.
If all of the Port LEDs stay on after 3 seconds, the hub may have failed its
self-test. See “Diagnosing with the LEDs” earlier in this chapter to interpret
the LED display.
Caution
Cycling power on the hub will temporarily disable the network and
could have other adverse effects.
Testing Twisted-Pair Cabling
The twisted-pair cable attached to the hub must be compatible with the
IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard. To verify that your cable is compatible
with this standard, you can use the HP J2263A Cable Test Set. The older
HP 28687A Wire Test Instrument can also be used. HP also offers a wire
testing service. Contact your HP-authorized LAN dealer or your local HP
sales office for more information.
2-8
Troubleshooting
Testing End-to-End Network Communications
Both the hub and the cabling can be tested by running an end-to-end
communications test — a test that sends known data from one network
device to another through the hub — such that you can verify that the data
was correctly transmitted between the devices. For example, if you have
two PCs on the network that have HP LAN adapter cards, you can use the
“Link Test” option from the card’s test program to verify the entire
communication path between the two PCs. In the following illustration, two
computers are connected together with twisted-pair cable to two different
ports on the hub.

Troubleshooting
Replacement Instructions
Remove any of the optional modules that you have installed into your hub
before returning it to Hewlett-Packard. Keep the optional modules to install
them into the replacement hub.
The modules can be damaged easily by small amounts of static electricity.
Observe these precautions when removing and installing the modules:
When handling the module, first touch a grounded metal surface, or
wear an anti-static wrist strap that is attached to grounded metal.
Troubleshooting
To prevent generating static electricity, minimize your movement
around the work area, or work in an anti-static work area.
Handle the module carefully at all times. Avoid flexing it or touching
its components.
The faulty hub should be returned to Hewlett-Packard with the AUI/Xcvr
and management slots empty and the cover plates installed.
For information about how to remove the modules, see the manuals
accompanying the HP Transceiver Module and the HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U
SNMP Module.

Hub Reference
Hub Operation
The HP AdvanceStack Hub-16U is a multiport repeater that conforms to the
IEEE 802.3 repeater specification. Data signals coming into the hub from
any of its ports are automatically regenerated and transmitted to all the
other hub network ports. The hub regenerates the data without interpreting
the contents, so it can be used in either IEEE 802.3 or Ethernet networks
and with any upper-level protocol.
Collision Detection
Hub Reference
The hub also performs collision detection. A collision occurs when two
nodes try to transmit at the same time. When the hub detects a collision, it
stops repeating the colliding transmissions and starts transmitting a jamming
signal. The jamming signal tells the transmitting nodes that a collision has
occurred. The colliding nodes then stop transmitting for a random amount of
time before attempting to retransmit the data. Once the collision condition is
removed, the hub stops transmitting the jamming signal and normal
operation is resumed.
3-4
Hub Reference
Auto-Partitioning
The hub will automatically partition (temporarily disable) one of its ports if
a collision condition exists for an excessive duration (between 1024 and
2048 bit times) or occurs during each of 32 consecutive attempts to transmit.
The hub monitors the partitioned port and automatically re-enables the port
when a minimum length packet can be successfully transmitted or received
without a collision occurring.
Excessive collisions may be caused by faulty wiring. If a port’s transmit
(Tx +/-) wires have been shorted to the receive (Rx +/-) wires of any port, a
collision will be detected when that port attempts to transmit. If a port’s
receive (Rx +/-) wires are not connected properly, collisions may occur
because the hub cannot detect the presence of network traffic on that port
and may thus transmit at inappropriate times.
A port may occasionally also become partitioned when network traffic is
extremely heavy causing an abnormally high collision rate.
Link Beat
3-5
Hub Reference
Type 10Base-T devices use a signal called link beat (also called link test
pulse). This signal informs the hub of the presence of a device connected to
it over twisted-pair cable and of the integrity of the twisted-pair link between
them. The hub will not transmit packets out of twisted-pair ports that do not
sense the link beat signal.
