HP 10Base-T Hubs
HP 10Base-T Hubs
The HP 10Base-T hubs are a family of multiport repeaters. With these hubs,
you can connect computers, printers, and servers together for file sharing.
These hubs are compliant with the IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard and
support both 802.3 and Ethernet networks. The HP 10Base-T hubs follow
these two standards by providing these features:
■
lighting the hub’s port LED when it detects the connected device is
powered on and cable is good.
■
retransmitting data that did not successfully arrive at the destination
device (collision detection).
A sample hub from the family is shown here to indicate common features.

The following table provides descriptive information about features on the HP
10Base-T Hubs.
Table 1.
HP 10Base-T Hub Feature Descriptions
Feature Type
Feature Description
Network Connections • 12 or 24 twisted-pair ports to connect to end nodes or other
devices.
• An MDI/MDI-X (Media Dependent Interface) 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 “straightthrough” twisted-pair cable in both cases. Port 1 has a factory
default of MDI-X, but can be toggled to an MDI state with the
adjacent push-button. All other ports are always MDI-X for
connection to computers and other end nodes through a twistedpair “straight-through” cable.
• An AUI/Xcvr slot for installing one of the HP Transceiver modules:
• HP Fiber-Optic Transceiver Module (HP J2606A) -- for 10Base-FL.
Allows you to connect your hub to a fiber-optic backbone.
• HP Twisted-Pair Transceiver Module (HP J2607A) -- for 10Base-T.
Adds another RJ-45 port for a total of 13 twisted-pair ports on the
J3300A and the J3301A hubs.
• HP ThinLAN Transceiver Module (HP J2608A)-- for 10Base2.
• HP AUI Port Module (HP J2609A) -- to attach external transceivers.
Easy-to-Use Design
• Hub Status LEDs showing power, activity, collisions, fault and Xcvr,
each providing quick, easy-to-read hub status information and
troubleshooting help.
• Port Status LEDs showing transceiver and port status, providing
quick, easy-to-read port status information and troubleshooting
help.
• 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 rack. Also, table and wall mounting is supported.
Standards-Based
Compatibility
•
IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T standard compatibility to support both
802.3 and Ethernet networks.

INSTALL.BK : CH0.FM5 Page viii Thursday, February 19, 1998 1:32 PM
HP 10Base-T Hubs
Feature Type
Feature Description
• Advanced embedded SNMP agent code in both the HP J3301A
and HP J3303A, enabling these hubs to be managed remotely from
a network management station using SNMP over IP (using the
configured IP address). The agent code also provides HP EASE
(Embedded Advanced Sampling Environment), which samples
network data for enhanced diagnostics from a network
management station. Also, the hubs support the RMON MIB. The
HP J3301A and HP J3303A both can be managed in any of these
three ways:
– using a Simple Network Management Protocol application that
runs in Microsoft Windows and Unix (HP ASA).
– using a World Wide Web browser application that runs in
Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer (the
Browser Interface).
– using an ASCII Console Interface.
Reliable Operation
• A self-test for fault identification when the hub is powered on or
when it is reset. (The hub can be reset from a network
management station or by pressing the Reset button.)
Other Features
• Password setting capability on both the HP J3301A and HP
J3303A, enabling you to add and remove passwords, as needed,
for selective entry into the hub management environment.
Passwords can be set from a World Wide Web browser, a network
management station, through an ASCII Console session. If you
forget your password, and are locked out of the hub’s management
environment, you can remove the password by pressing the Clear
button.
• An RS-232 serial port on both the HP J3301A and HP J3303A that
provides out-of-band management access including:
– An ASCII console to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the
hub.
– Variable baud rates on the hub’s out-of-band management RS232 port, and automatic sensing of the selected baud rate when
connecting to a terminal device.
– Full V.22bis modem line control for remote out-of-band
management access to the hub.
– Updatable firmware that enables enhancements to be
downloaded either from a computer attached to the out-ofband management port via Xmodem or over the network via
TFTP.

Check the LEDs on the hub’s front panel. When the hub is powered on, it
performs a power-on self test. See the table below for the LED self test
time that occurs during the self test. Note the upper number is for the HP
J3300A/HP J3302A and the lower number is for the HP J3301A/HP J3303A.

Installing the Hub
Installing Your Hub
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,
such as all port LEDs staying lit indefinitely. Note that the normal
operational state could include indefinitely blinking LEDs in the event of
a detected intruder. For managed HP 10Base-T Hubs, see your HP
10Base-T Hubs Management and Configuration guide for more information on Intruder Detection and flashing LEDs associated with it.
If the self test time range elapses and the Fault LED continues to stay on
instead of turning off, the hub may have an error condition. If repeating
the self test does not correct the problem and the Fault LED still stays
continuously on, contact your HP authorized reseller for replacement
information. After the hub has passed its self test, you are ready to mount
the hub. Unplug the hub and proceed to the next step.
4. Mount the hub
Before mounting the hub, unplug it. The HP 10Base-T Hubs can be
mounted in three ways:
1.
in a rack or cabinet
2.
on the wall
3.
on a table
The hardware for mounting the hub is included in the accessory kit
(5064-2053) packed with the hub. See Appendix C, “Safety and Regulatory
Statements,” for general mounting precautions.
Rack or Cabinet Mounting
Warning
The rack or cabinet should be adequately secured to prevent it from
becoming unstable and/or falling over. Please see Appendix C, “Safety
and Regulatory Statements,” for precautions and warnings associated with
rack mounting.

Installing the Hub
Note that once you have connected cables to the hub, an AUI transceiver

Wall Mounting
Using a Phillips (crosshead) No. 2 screwdriver, attach the mounting brackets
to the hub with 8-mm (approximately 5/16") M4 screws included in the
accessory kit. Then attach the hub to a wood surface (minimum 1/2-inch
plywood or equivalent) with No. 12 (5/8") wood screws with a Phillips Crosshead No. 2 screwdriver.
HP recommends that the bottom of the hub should be flush with the wall. The
brackets should be positioned at the front of the hub. The face of the hub
should be pointing up.
Note that the wood screws are not included in the accessory kit. Wood screws have
a pointed and for boring into the wood, unlike rack screws which are flat on the end.
Table Mounting
To place the hub on a table or other horizontal surface, no special tools are
necessary. Apply the four feet included in the accessory kit onto the bottom
of the hub. 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.

5. Connect the hub to your network
Installing the Hub
Connect the hub to an AC power source. With the hub mounted, you are now
ready to connect the hub to your network. Typical hub connections are:
■
hub-to-device connections. Connecting to network devices such as
computers, and printers.
■
hub-to-hub and hub-to-switch connections. Connecting to another
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.
To connect a device to the hub, using unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable,
push the RJ-45 plug at one end of the cable into the RJ-45 jack on the hub until
the tab on the plug clicks into place.

Connecting Hubs Together
To expand your network, the hub can be connected to other hubs with straightthrough cable by using the Media Dependent Interface (MDI/MDI-X) 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 MDIX position. The switch has 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 pairs for you. This allows
you to use “straight-through” category 3 or 4 cable rather than “cross-over”
cable to connect two hubs together. The cable length can be up to 100
meters. Category 5 cable length can be up to 150 meters.
Be sure that only one of the two hubs is using an MDI port; the hub-todevice connection must always have MDI at one end (usually a transceiver), and MDI-X at the other end (usually a hub or switch), when
connecting the two with a straight-through cable.
■
In the MDI-X position, use Port 1 to connect your hub to a PC or similar
device using “straight-through” cable. In this position, the port is wired
the same as all other twisted-pair ports on the hub. Cable lengths for these
connections can be up to 100 meters.

Troubleshooting
Most problems with the hub can be diagnosed using the LEDs on its front
panel. The following section describes the normal LED pattern during selftest, and LED patterns that indicate error conditions on the hub.
Interpreting LED Status
Two types of LEDs exist on the hub. They are:
■
Hub Status LEDs. These LEDs reflect certain conditions that exist on the
hub at large and are not explicitly referring to a given port.
■
Port Status LEDs. These LEDs reflect basic conditions (for example, Link
Beat being enabled) that exist on a specific port.
Status information for both are described in the following tables.
Troubleshooting
Interpreting Hub Status LEDs
The hub status LEDs indicate whether the hub is functioning properly.
LED

Meaning of LED
Power
Green
On indicates the hub is receiving power.
Off indicates the hub is not receiving power.
Activity
Green
Flickering (rapid flashing) indicates a packet is
being transmitted to or from a port. Normally, the
LED appears to flicker. In heavy traffic, it may
appear on all the time.
Off indicates no packet is being transmitted to or
from a port.
Fault
Orange
On indicates an error has been detected on the
hub.
Off indicates no error has been detected on the
hub.
Port LED Flash on for.75 seconds and turn off
for.75 seconds, indicating the port is partitioned.
The Fault LED does NOT illuminate when ports are
partitioned.
Collision
Orange

Running Connectivity Tests
Both the hub and 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. Through both the ASCII Console Interface and
the Browser Interface, you can run the following hub-to-node connectivity
tests:
Link Test. A test of the link layer (MAC Address) connection between a local
device and a designated remote device.
Ping Test. A test of the network layer (IP Address) path between the managed
device and another device on an IP network that responds to IP packets.

Obtaining Firmware Enhancements
In the future, Hewlett-Packard may provide improvements to the HP 10Base-T
Hub 12M and the HP 10Base-T Hub 24M through firmware upgrades. The
upgrade code can be downloaded from a PC attached to the hub’s RS-232 port
or over the network. The update procedures are described in documents that
come with the firmware enhancements. Also, some downloading instructions
are covered in chapter 6 of the HP 10Base-T Hubs Management and Configuration guide.
Troubleshooting
You can determine the current firmware version on the hub from the ASCII
console. Look for the SNMP Agent EEPROM version number to determine the
revision. When you access the console, the version number appears. It is also
on the General System Information Screen under the Status and Counters
Menu and the Identity Window in the Browser Interface.
To obtain the latest agent firmware, use the download instructions on the
quick reference card included at the beginning of this manual.

HP 10Base-T Hubs. The following topics are covered:
■
overview
■
twisted pair cable/connector pinouts
■
RS-232 connector and cable pinouts
It also includes minimum pin-out information so, if you wish to use an unlisted

Cables and Connectors
Use the RS-232 port to connect a PC to be used as the console. To make this
connection, you must use a null modem cable or you can use the minimum
cable pin-out described below.
This appendix lists cables that have been tested and verified for use with the
HP 10Base-T Hubs. It also includes minimum pin-out information so, if you
wish to use an unlisted cable, you can verify that the cables used in your
installation are correctly wired. Note that each pin-out does not necessarily
match the pin-out for the corresponding HP cable, but cables manufactured
to follow the minimum pin-out will function correctly.

Declaration of Conformity
Mounting Precautions
When you put a hub into a rack, follow these mounting precautions:
■
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 stack the other hubs on top.
■
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. Verify that there is room for the
grouped cables to trail out from the side of the hub. Allow at least 2.54 cm
(1 inch) in the front of the hub. In the back of the hub, allow at least 3.8
cm (1 1/2 inches) of space for the power cord.
■
Ensure that the HP 10Base-T Hub does not overload the power circuits,
wiring, and over-current protection. To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add together the amperage 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 10Base-T Hubs to the circuit.
See the Safety Statements in this chapter.
■
Do not block airflow around the sides and the back of the unit.

Safety and Regulatory Statements
Power Precautions
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.
Do not install the hub in an environment where the operating ambient temperature might exceed 45°C (113°F).
Power Precautions
Follow these precautions when unplugging and plugging in power to the hub
as well as adding or removing transceiver modules.
Note
The hub does not have a power switch; it is powered on when the power cord
is plugged in. The hub's power supply automatically adjusts to any AC power
source between 100-127 volts and 200-240 volts. There are no voltage range
settings to configure.
Safety and Regulatory
Statements
When installing the hub, note that the AC outlet must be installed near the
equipment and should be easily accessible.
