HP AdvanceStack Hub-8U
At A Glance
The HP J2610B AdvanceStack Hub-8U is a multiport repeater with eight
twisted-pair network ports. With this hub, you can connect computers and
other devices together in an unshielded twisted-pair cable network. This hub
is compliant with the IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard and supports both
802.3 and Ethernet networks.

Features
Network Connections
Eight RJ-45 (twisted-pair) ports to connect to end nodes or other devices.
A Media Dependent Interface (MDI) switch for Port 1 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, with
Management Options
A management slot in the back of the hub enables you to install an optional HP
AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module. With the module, you can configure,
monitor, and troubleshoot the hub using either of the following options:
+ Serially connect an ASCII console to the hub.
+ Use HP AdvanceStack Assistant (HP ASA) to monitor traffic and manage
the hub from a PC running ASA on the network. HP ASA (formerly HP
Interconnect Manager) is included at no extra cost with the 8U/16U SNMP
Module. HP ASA works over the network through either a twisted-pair cable
connected to any UTP port, or a fiber or ThinLAN cable connected to an
optional ThinLAN or fiber-optic transceiver installed in the back of the hub.
An AUI/Xcvr Slot in the back 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. The AUI Port Module with an external transceiver allows you to
connect to an Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 LAN. The twisted-pair module adds a ninth
RJ-45 port for a total of nine 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.
A small footprint that allows you to install the hub in a variety of ways, including
on a desk, under a desk, 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.

Installing the Hub
1. Install add-in modules (optional)
It may be more convenient to install these optional modules before installing
the hub under a desk or other location. Inspect your installation site and
identify whether the hub’s module slots will be accessible.
The HP J3133A AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module enables you to connect
a PC to the hub to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the hub.
Caution
To avoid possible damage to module or transceiver circuitry,
disconnect the power cable from the hub before installing (or
removing) the optional SNMP Module or a transceiver.
1-3
Installing the Hub
The HP AdvanceStack Hub-8U can be custom-configured by installing the
optional HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module and/or an HP Transceiver
Module. If you intend to install any of these optional modules, refer to the
documentation that was shipped with it.
Installing the Hub

Installing the Hub
2. Verify the hub’s operation
Installing the Hub
Your hub uses power from an ac adapter.
Note
If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied
with the hub, contact your HP-authorized LAN dealer or your local HP
sales office.
The hub does not have a power switch; it is powered on when the power
cord is plugged in.
To provide power to the hub, follow these steps:
1. Plug the power supply into the receptacle on the hub marked
“Power”.
2. Plug the ac power cord into an ac power source. When installing
the Hub-8U, note that the ac outlet must be installed near the equipment
and should be easily accessible.
Example of an ac power cord
for a U.S. outlet. Plug the ac
power cord provided with your
hub into an ac power source.

Installing the Hub
3. 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 LEDs are lit for a short time.
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
stays lit
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 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.
4. After the hub has passed its self-test, you are ready to mount
the hub. Before mounting the hub, unplug it.
3. Mount the hub
The HP AdvanceStack Hub-8U can be placed on a desk or mounted on any
vertical or horizontal surface, for example, a wall or under a desk.
To locate the hub on a table or other horizontal surface, no special tools are
necessary. Be certain to pick a sturdy table in an uncluttered area. You may
want to secure the hub’s cables to the leg of the table to prevent people from
tripping over them.
Equipment Required
To mount the hub on a wall or under a desk, you will need the following
equipment:
two number 6 by half-inch or M3 x 12 mm pan head wood screws
(not included with the hub)
a Phillips (cross-head) screwdriver (not included with the hub)
1-6
Installing the Hub
Installing the Hub
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
(76 mm) of space for twisted-pair cables. In the back of the hub,
leave 3 inches (7 cm) of space for the ac power cord, the
AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP module, and a serial connector.
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.
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 of the hub is not restricted.
Marking the Location
Important
A hub should be mounted only to a wall or wood surface that is
at least 1/2-inch (12.7 mm) plywood or its equivalent.
1. Using the illustration on the next page, mark the screw hole locations
on the mounting surface 4 13/16 inches (122.2 mm) apart. Make sure
you allow enough room to make the cable connections to the hub
and to be able to access the cables if they have to be moved.
2. Using a Phillips (cross-head) screwdriver, screw in the two pan head wood
screws leaving 1/8th inch (3 mm) between the screw head and the mounting
surface. (You may need to first pre-drill the surface with a 3/32-inch bit.)
1-7
Installing the Hub
Installing the Hub
Mounting the Hub
After the screws are in place, follow the steps below for mounting the hub
on a wall or under a desk.
1. For a vertical mount (such as a wall), place the bottom of the hub
against the screws. For a horizontal mount under a surface such as a
desk or table, turn the hub upside down and gently place the hub up
against the screws.
2. Slide the hub in either of the two diagonal directions to secure the
hub into place.

4. Complete the network connections
to the hub
Reconnect the hub to the power source and then make the network
connections to the hub. Typical hub connections are:
Hub-to-device connections. Connecting to network devices such
as computers and printers.
Hub-to-hub connections. Connecting to another HP AdvanceStack
Hub or other Ethernet hub.
Hub-to-network backbones. Connecting to a network backbone.
This section describes the different ways you can connect your hub to your
network.
Connecting Devices to the Hub
To connect a device to the hub, push the RJ-45 plug into the RJ-45 jack until
the tab on the plug clicks into place.

Connecting Hubs Together
Twisted-Pair Cascade Connections
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 twistedpair cable connected to Port 1. The hub is shipped with the switch in the
MDI-X position. The switch is a pushbutton switch with
two positions:
In the MDI position, use Port 1 to connect your hub to another
hub. In this position, the hub reverses the Tx and Rx port pins for
you. This allows you to use “straight-through” cable rather than
“cross-over” cable to connect two hubs together.
In the MDI-X position, use Port 1 to connect your hub to a PC or
similar device using “straight-through” cable. In the MDI-X position,
the switch is exposed by 0.10 inches (2.5 mm) in front of the bezel.

Caution
1-10
You must disconnect the device connected to Port 1 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 1 will be disrupted. To restore your connection, 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 an HP J3133A 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, 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 pattern 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 LEDs turn on for a short time.

Troubleshooting
If you have an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U
SNMP Module installed, see the manual for
the module.
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, ac power cord, power supply, 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
that 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. Refer to “Diagnosing with LEDs” earlier in this chapter for
information on using LEDs to identify unusual network activity.
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 Networks for topology configuration guidelines. Contact
your HP-authorized LAN dealer or local HP sales office to get a copy of this
guide.
Troubleshooting
Diagnostic Tests
If you have an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module installed into the
hub, the ASCII console provides tests and indicators that can be used to
monitor the hub and its network connections. See the documentation shipped
with the HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module and the console’s online
Help system for more details about these tests and indicators.
Troubleshooting
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 ac adapter from the hub and plug the ac adapter into the
hub again.
If an HP AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP Module is installed, select the
“Reset” option from the ASCII console or press the Reset button on
the module..
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
PC sending
test packets
PC responding to
the test packets
See your LAN adapter card’s manual for information on running an end-to-end
communication test.
With the AdvanceStack 8U/16U SNMP module, you can also run a Link test
directly to or from a hub (directly between a hub and another device, rather
than just through the hub).
2-9
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 Operation
The HP AdvanceStack Hub-8U 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
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.
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
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.
