The HP ProCurve 10/100 hubs are low-cost multiport, dual-speed (10- and 100Mbps) repeaters that can be used to build high-performance workgroup
networks. These hubs are autosensing and autonegotiating devices that
provide the flexibility of adjusting to different network connection speed
settings. The hub ports always operate at half-duplex.
There are four hub models. Two are managed:
■
HP ProCurve 10/100 Hub 12M (HP J3288A)
■
HP ProCurve 10/100 Hub 24M (HP J3289A)
and two are unmanaged:
■
HP ProCurve 10/100 Hub 12 (HP J3294A)
■
HP ProCurve 10/100 Hub 24 (HP J3295A)
Throughout this manual, these hubs will be abbreviated as the HP 10/100 hubs,
or they may be described as the Hub 12, Hub 24, Hub 12M, and Hub 24M.
With these hubs you can build a network infrastructure by connecting the hubs
to other hubs, switches, or routers, or you can directly connect computers,
printers, and servers to these hubs to provide shared 10- or 100-Mbps bandwidth to those devices.

Introducing the HP ProCurve 10/100 Hubs
Front of the Hubs
The HP 10/100 hubs have 12 or 24 RJ-45 ports that can be used for either
10Base-T or 100Base-TX connections.
Ports 2 through 12 or 24 are wired as MDI-X. Therefore, to connect end nodes
or other MDI-type devices to these ports, use “straight-through” twisted-pair
cable; to connect hubs, switches, or other MDI-X-type devices to these ports,
use “crossover” twisted-pair cable. See Appendix B, “Cables and Connectors”
for descriptions of these cables.
Port 1 can operate as either an MDI-X or MDI port, controlled by the MDI-X/
MDI button on the front of the hub. If you have only straight-through cable,
you can use Port 1 with the button in the MDI position to connect the hub to
switches, other hubs, and other MDI-X devices. In the MDI position, the button
crosses the cable pairs on Port 1 so that the Transmit and Receive pins on
connecting devices exchange signals correctly when using straight-through
cable. With the button in the MDI-X position, Port 1 operates the same as the
other ports.
Port LEDs
For each network port on the hub, there are two LEDs:
Link. This LED highlights the port number, and when lit, indicates the port
has detected a valid link with a connected device.
100. This LED when lit, indicates that the port is connected to an attached
device operating at 100 Mbps. If the 100 LED is not lit, and the Link LED
indicates a valid connection, then the port is operating at 10 Mbps. See the
following sections for more details on the LEDs.
Link LED. Indicates
whether the port has
detected the link
beat signal from an
attached device.
100 LED. Indicates whether
the associated port is
operating at 100 Mbps. If the
100 LED is not lit, then the port
is operating at 10 Mbps

Clear Button (Hub 12M and Hub 24M)
This button is used for deleting any hub console and web browser interface
passwords that you have configured for the hub. When pressed for at least ten
seconds, the button deletes the passwords. Use this feature if you have
misplaced the password and need console access.
Note
This button is provided for your convenience, but its presence means that if
you are concerned with the security of the hub configuration and operation,
you should make sure the hub is installed in a secure location, such as a locked
wiring closet.
Back of the Hubs
Power Connector
The 10/100 hubs do not have a power switch; they are powered on when
connected to an active AC power source. The hubs automatically adjust to
various voltages (depending on the country) between 100-127 and 200-240
volts and either 50 or 60 Hz. There are no voltage range settings required.

Installation Procedures
Summary
Installing the HP 10/100 Hubs
Follow these easy steps to install your hub. The rest of this chapter provides
details on these steps.
1.
Prepare the installation site (page 2-4). Make sure that the physical
environment into which you will be installing the hub is properly prepared
including having the correct network cabling ready to connect to the hub,
and having a good location for the hub. Please see page 2-3 for some
installation precautions.
2.
Verify that the hub passes self test (page 2-5). This is a simple process
of plugging the hub into a power source and observing that the LEDs on
the hub’s front panel show correct operation.
3.
Mount the hub (page 2-6). The hub can be mounted in a 19-inch telco
rack, in an equipment cabinet, on a wall, or on a horizontal surface.
4.
Connect power to the hub (page 2-9). Once the hub is mounted, plug
it in to the nearby main power source.
5.
Connect the network devices (page 2-10). Using the appropriate
network cables, connect other hubs, switches, routers, computers,
servers, printers, and other network devices to the hub ports.
6.
Connect a console to the hub (optional on Hub 12M and Hub 24M
only—page 2-11). You may wish to modify the hub’s configuration, for
example to configure an IP address on the hub so it can be managed using
a web browser, from an SNMP network management station, or through
a telnet session to the hub console. Configuration changes can be made
easily by using the included console cable to connect a PC to the hub’s
console port.
At this point, the hub is fully installed and your network should be up and
running. See the rest of this chapter if you need more detailed information on
any of these installation steps.

Installing the HP 10/100 Hubs
Installation Procedures
Installation Precautions
Follow these precautions when installing your HP 10/100 hub.
The rack or cabinet should be adequately secured to prevent it from
becoming unstable and/or falling over. The hub should be mounted in a
position toward the bottom of the rack for stability and to make it easier to
place the other hubs on top.
Cautions
■
Make sure that the power source circuits are properly grounded, then
use the power cord supplied with the hub to connect it to the power
source.
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.
■
Make sure that the HP 10/100 hub does not overload the power circuits,
wiring, and over-current protection at your site. To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add together the amperage
ratings from all of the equipment installed on the same circuit as the hub
and compare the total with the rating limits for the supply circuit. The
maximum amperage ratings are usually printed on the devices near the
AC power connectors.
■
When installing the hub, note that the AC outlet must be installed near
the equipment and should be easily accessible.
■
Do not install the hub in an environment where the operating ambient
temperature might exceed 55°C (131°F).
■
Do not block airflow around the sides and the back of the hub.

Installation Location - Before mounting a hub, plan its location and
orientation relative to other devices and equipment. Also consider the
cabling that will be attached to the hub and the ports that will be used.
Allow at least 2.54 cm (1 inch) in the front of the hub for the twisted-pair
cabling. In the back of the hub, allow at least 3.8 cm (1 1/2 inches) of space
for the power cord.

Installation Procedures
2. Verify the Hub Passes Its Self Test
Before mounting the hub in its network location, you should first verify that
it is working properly by plugging it into a power source and verifying that it
passes its self test.
1.
Connect the power cord supplied with the hub to the power connector on
the back of the hub, and then into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
Note
The HP 10/100 hubs do not have a power switch. They are powered on when
the power cord is connected to the hub and to a power source.
2.
Check the LEDs on the hub.
Hub Port LEDs
Power and Fault LEDs
When the hub is powered on, it performs its diagnostic self test. The selftest takes approximately three seconds to complete for the Hub 12 and
Hub 24, and approximately 30 seconds for the Hub 12M and Hub 24M.
LED Behavior:
During the self test: Initially, all the hub and port LEDs are on. After
approximately three seconds, the “100” LEDs for all the ports, and the
Activity and Collision LEDs go off.
When the self test completes successfully:
•
The Power LED stays on.
•
The Fault LED goes off.
•
The port LEDs and Act and Col LEDs go into their normal operational
mode.

Installation Procedures
6. (Optional) Connect a Console to the Hub (Hub 12M
and Hub 24M only)
The Hub 12M and Hub 24M have a full-featured, easy to use console interface
for performing the following tasks:
Monitor hub and port status and observe network activity counters
■
Modify the hub’s configuration
■
Access diagnostic tools to help in troubleshooting
■
Download new software to the hub
■
Add passwords to control console, web browser interface, and
network management access to the hub
The console can be accessed through these methods:
■
Out-of-band: The Hub 12M and Hub 24M come with a serial cable for
connecting a PC, or ASCII or VT-100 terminal to be used as a console
directly to the hub. If the PC or terminal has a 25-pin serial connector, you
can use a readily available 9-pin to 25-pin serial cable, or attach a 9-to-25
pin adapter to the end of the supplied cable.
■
In-Band: Access the console using Telnet from a PC or UNIX station on
the network, and an ASCII or VT-100 terminal emulator. This method
requires that you first configure the hub with an IP address and subnet
mask by using either out-of-band console access or through DHCP/Bootp.
The hub 12M and Hub 24M can, at any given time, support one console session
through the Console Port or one Telnet console session. There is no restriction
on the number of web browser interface sessions with the hub.
Terminal Configuration
To connect a console to the hub, configure the PC terminal emulator as an
ASCII (TTY) or VT-100 (ANSI) terminal or use an ASCII or VT-100 terminal and
configure it to operate with these settings:
■
any baud rate from 2400 to 115200 (the hub senses the speed)
■
8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, XON/XOFF flow control
■
For Windows Terminal program, also disable (uncheck) the “Use Function, Arrow, and Ctrl Keys for Windows” option.
■
For the Hilgrave HyperTerminal program, select the “Windows keys”
option for the “Function, arrow, and ctrl keys act as” parameter.
If you want to operate the console using a different configuration, make sure
you change the settings on both the terminal and on the hub. Change the hub
settings first, then change the terminal settings, and reestablish the console
session.

bridge to provide communication between the 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps end nodes connected to the
hub. The HP 10/100 hubs have an internal bridge that provides that connection. The illustration
shows a 10/100 hub connected to a switch as a way to extend your network, and to provide
connections to high-speed campus backbones.
Cables Used
10 Mbps connections: category 3, 4, or 5 100 ohm unshielded twisted-pair cable.
100 Mbps connections: 100 ohm, Category 5 unshielded twisted pair cable only. For the connection

Your hub is now correctly installed and is able to send and receive data
between end nodes, servers, and printers.
The HP 10/100 hubs are plug-and-communicate network devices requiring no
configuration. The Hub 12M and Hub 24M are managed hubs. If you wish to
manage these hubs from an SNMP-based network management station, you
will need to configure the IP address on the hubs. See the HP ProCurve 10/

came with your hub for information on how to use the hub console to
configure the IP address.
Note

The Hub 12M and Hub 24M can also be managed through a graphical interface
that you can access from any PC or workstation on the network by running
your web browser and typing in the hub’s IP address as the URL. No additional
software installation is required to make this interface available; it is included
in the hub’s onboard software.

Basic Troubleshooting Tips
Basic Troubleshooting Tips
Most problems are caused by the following situations:
■
Incorrect hub-to-switch or hub-to-hub connections. Check your
cable type:
•
The HP 10/100 hub ports as standard Ethernet ports, are wired as
MDI-X ports. When connecting to another MDI-X device such as
another hub or switch, use a crossover cable. You can also use a
straight-through cable connected to Port 1 with the MDI/MDI-X
button in the MDI position.
•
When connecting to an MDI device such as network interface cards
in computers and other end nodes, and some hub and switch ports,
use a straight-through cable.
Troubleshooting
See Appendix B, “Cables and Connectors” for pinouts and correct cable
wiring for crossover and straight-through twisted-pair cables.
■
Non-standard cables. Non-standard and miswired cables may cause
network collisions and noise, and can seriously impair network performance. 100Base-T networks are more sensitive to miswired cables than
10Base-T networks, and they must be cabled with Category 5 UTP cable
only. Use a new correctly-wired cable or compare your cable to the cable
in Appendix B, “Cables and Connectors” for pinouts and correct cable
wiring. A category 5 cable tester is a recommended tool for every
100Base-T network installation.
■
Improper Network Topologies. It is important to make sure you have
a valid network topology. Common topology faults include excessive
cable length and excessive numbers of repeaters between nodes. For
10Base-T networking, the standard allows at most five repeaters (hubs)
between any two end nodes. For 100Base-T, see the topology rules below.
If you have network problems after recent changes to the network, change
back to the previous topology. If you no longer experience the problems,
the new topology is probably at fault. Refer to the guide entitled
Designing HP ProCurve Workgroup Networks for topology configuration
guidelines. This guide can be found online at the HP World Wide Web site,
http://www.hp.com/go/procurve.
In addition, you should make sure that your network topology contains
no data path loops. Between any two end nodes, there should be only one
active cabling path at any time. Data path loops will cause broadcast
storms that will severely impact your network performance.
3-2
9934.book Page 3 Thursday, January 14, 1999 12:39 PM
Troubleshooting
Basic Troubleshooting Tips
•
100Base-T topology rules: Be aware that the topology rules for
100Base-T networks are much more restrictive than for 10Base-T.
You may have to redo an existing 10Base-T topology for 100Base-T
products.
The HP 10/100 hubs operate as Class II hubs when being used for
100Base-T networking. Some basic Class II 100Base-T Hub rules are
as follows:
– The maximum segment length for a hub-to-end node connection
is 100 meters.
– At most one hub can be cascaded from any of the hub ports that
are operating at 100 Mbps.
– Do not mix Class I and Class II hubs when cascading.
– When cascading two hubs together, the maximum distance separating them is 5 meters.
– You must use 100-ohm Category 5 UTP cable in the 100Base-T
installations.
See the card “Connectivity Rules for 100T Networks” included with
your hub for illustrations of these rules.
Full-duplex link to the hub. Regular hub ports, including the ports on
the HP 10/100 hubs, only operate in half-duplex mode. If the attached
device is running in full-duplex mode, it will cause a high number of late
collisions on the network, degrading performance for all nodes. The HP
10/100 hubs must not be connected to devices that are configured for fullduplex operation.
■
Non-compatible Speed Configuration. For the Hub 12M and Hub 24M,
make sure that you have not configured any port to operate at a speed
that is not compatible with the attached device (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps).
■
Faulty or loose network cables. Look for loose or obviously faulty
connections. If they appear to be OK, try a different cable.

active AC power
source, or the
hub’s power
supply may have
failed.
1. Verify that the power cord is plugged into an active power source and to the hub. Make
sure these connections are snug.
2. Try power cycling the hub by unplugging and plugging the power cord back in.
3. If the Power LED is still not on, verify that the AC power source works by plugging
another device into the outlet. Or try plugging the hub into a different outlet or try a
different power cord.
If the power source and power cord are OK and this condition persists, the hub power
supply may have failed. Call your HP-authorized LAN dealer, or use the electronic support
services from HP to get assistance. See the Customer Support/Warranty card for more
information.

properly.
Try the following procedures:
• Verify that the connected device and the hub are both powered on and are operating
correctly.
• Verify that all connections in the cable path between the hub and the connected device
are OK.
• Verify that you have used the correct cable type for the connection.
For twisted-pair connections, in general, for connecting an end node or other MDI
device to the hub, use “straight- through” cable; for connecting MDI-X ports on other
hubs or switches, use “crossover” cable.
• For the 100 Mbps connections, verify that you are using category 5, or better, UTP
cable.
• For the Hub 12M and Hub 24M: Verify that the port has not been disabled through a
configuration change.
You can use the hub console interface, or, if you have configured an IP address on the
hub, use the web browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches network
management software to determine the state of the port and re-enable the port if
necessary.
• If the other procedures don’t resolve the problem, try using a different port or a
different cable.
➌
The port has
been
autopartitioned
due to excessive
collisions.
This usually occurs because of faulty or improper cabling or a network loop. Or it may
occur because of a jabbering end node. When the condition is corrected and the normal
network traffic is restored, the port will automatically return to normal operation and the
Link LED will stop blinking.
➍
A hub hardware
failure was
detected during
self test.
Self test does not complete so the Fault LED will stay on longer than 5 seconds for the
Hub 12 and Hub 24, and longer than 35 seconds for the Hub 12M and Hub 24M.
➎
A security
violation has
been detected on
the port.
Per port security is configurable on the Hub 12M and Hub 24M only. A network device
with an address that is not in the list of authorized addresses for the port has attempted
network communication through the hub.
➏
Hub 12M and Hub
24M only. The
10Base-T
functionality of
the hub is locked
up in a “jabber”
condition.
This condition can occur if you have configured a port to operate specifically at only 10
Mbps, and then a 100 Mbps-only device is connected to that port.
Locate the port with this speed mismatch condition, and unplug the cable to relieve the
condition. You may have to simply unplug cables one at a time until you see the Activity
LED go back into normal flickering operation. Then, reconfigure the port for speed
compatibility with the device before reconnecting the cable from that device.
Power cycle the hub by unplugging the power cord, waiting several seconds, and then
plugging the power cord back in to the hub. If this condition persists, the hub may have
to be replaced. Contact your HP-authorized LAN dealer or HP representative for
assistance.
Try power cycling the hub. If the fault indication reoccurs, the hub may have failed. Call
your HP-authorized LAN dealer, or use the electronic support services from HP to get
assistance. See the Customer Support/Warranty card for more information.

Troubleshooting
Proactive Networking
Proactive Networking
The Hub 12M and Hub 24M have built-in management capabilities that proactively help you manage your network including:
■
finding and helping you fix the most common network error conditions
(for example, faulty network cabling, and non-standard network topologies)
■
informing you of the problem with clear, easy-to-understand messages
■
recommending network configuration changes to enhance the performance of your network
■
per-port security to allow you to designate authorized network users
Troubleshooting
The following interfaces provide tests, indicators, and an event log that can
be used to monitor the hub and its network connections and to help you take
advantage of these proactive networking features:
■
HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches - an SNMP-based network management
tool that is included with your hub.
■
A graphical web browser interface that you can use to manage your hub
from a PC running a supported web browser, for example Microsoft
Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator.
■
A full-featured easy-to-use console interface that you can access by
merely connecting a standard terminal or PC running a terminal emulator
to the hub’s console port. The cable to make that connection is provided
with your Hub 12M and Hub 24M. The console interface is also accessible
through a telnet connection.
See chapter 8, “Troubleshooting”, in the Management and Configuration
Guide that came with your hub for more information on using these software
tools to diagnose and manage your hub.

Hardware Diagnostic Tests
Hardware Diagnostic Tests
Testing the Hub by Resetting It
If you believe that the hub is not operating correctly, you can reset it to test
its circuitry and operating code. To reset a hub, either:
■
Unplug and plug back in the power cord (power cycle)
■
Press the reset button on the front of the hub
Power cycling the hub and pressing the Reset button both cause the hub to
perform its power-on self-test, which may resolve any temporary operational
problems.
The self-test passes if the Fault LED on the front of the hub goes off after
approximately 3 seconds for the Hub 12 and Hub 24, and approximately 30
seconds for the Hub 12M and Hub 24M. If the Fault LED stays on longer than
these normal self test times, the hub may have to be replaced. Contact your
HP-authorized dealer or HP representative for assistance. See the Customer
Support/Warranty booklet that came with your hub for more information.
Testing Twisted-Pair Cabling
HP also offers a wire testing service. Contact your HP-authorized LAN dealer
or your local HP sales office for more information.
Note
Make sure that you are using the correct cabling type for each connection.
The hub ports are all wired as MDI-X. For connecting end nodes and other
MDI-type devices, use “straight-through” cable. For connecting switches,
other hubs, and other MDI-X devices, use “crossover” cable; or, you can use a
straight-through cable by connecting the MDI-X device to Port 1 and change
the port setting to MDI by depressing the MDI-X/MDI button on the front of
the hub to the MDI position. See Appendix B, “Cables and Connectors” for the
pinouts for straight-through and crossover cables.
3-7
Troubleshooting
If you think the cable should work but still isn’t working, it may not be
compatible with the IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T or IEEE 802.3u 100Base-T
standards. The twisted-pair cables attached to the HP 10/100 hub must be
compatible with these standards. To verify that your cable is compatible with
these standards, use a qualified cable test device.

Troubleshooting
Hardware Diagnostic Tests
Testing Hub-to-Device Network Communications (Hub
12M and Hub 24M only)
You can perform the following communication tests to verify that the network
is operating correctly between the Hub 12M or Hub 24M and any connected
device that can respond correctly to the communication test.
■
Link Test -- a physical layer test that sends IEEE 802.2 test packets to any
device identified by its MAC address
■
Ping Test -- a network layer test used on IP networks that sends test
packets to any device identified by its IP address
These tests can be performed through the hub console interface from a
terminal connected to the hub or through a telnet connection, or from the
hub’s web browser interface. See the Management and Configuration Guide
that came with your hub for more information.
These tests can also be performed from an SNMP network management
station running a program that can manage the hub, for example, HP TopTools
for Hubs & Switches.
Testing End-to-End Network Communications
Troubleshooting
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. For example, if you have two PCs on the network
that have LAN adapters between which you can run a link-level test or Ping
test through the hub, you can use this test to verify that the entire communication path between the two PCs is functioning correctly. See your LAN
adapter (NIC) documentation for more information on running a link test or
Ping test.

This appendix includes hub connector information and network cable information for cables that should be used with the HP 10/100 hubs, including
minimum pin-out information for twisted-pair cables.
Note
Incorrectly wired cabling is the most common cause of problems for LAN
communications. HP recommends that you work with a qualified LAN cable
installer for assistance with your cabling requirements.
Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs
The RJ-45 10/100Base-T ports on the HP 10/100 hubs are wired as MDI-X ports.
Port 1 on each hub can be changed to an MDI port by pressing the MDI-X/MDI
switch on the front of the hub to the MDI position. The type of twisted-pair
cable you connect to these ports (either “straight-through” or “crossover”)
depends on the type of device at the other end of the cable.
The basic rule is, when connecting same-type ports together (for example
MDI-X-to-MDI-X), use crossover cable; when connecting opposite-type ports
together (for example MDI-X-to-MDI), use straight-through cable.
These additional rules apply:
■
All twisted-pair wires used for 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps operation must be
twisted through the entire length of the cable. The wiring sequence must
conform to EIA/TIA 568-B (not USOC). See “Twisted-Pair Cable Pin
Assignments” later in this appendix for a listing of the signals used on each
pin.
■
For 10 Mbps connections to the ports, you can use Category 3, 4, or 5
unshielded twisted-pair cable, as supported by the IEEE 802.3 Type
10Base-T standard.
■
For 100 Mbps connections to the ports, use 100-ohm Category 5 UTP cable
only, as supported by the IEEE 802.3u Type 100Base-TX standard.
