About the HomeConnect Hub
The HomeConnect 10 Mbps Ethernet Hub, which is part of the
HomeConnect Home Network Ethernet Kit, is the heart of your
home network. It acts as a central communication point for all
the computers and other devices on your network.
The HomeConnect hub contains five computer ports and
one Uplink port. The five computer ports allow you to create
a small network with up to five
computers. The Uplink port
enables you to connect another Ethernet hub to expand
your network.
Note:
You cannot use Port 5 and
the Uplink port at the
same time. If you connect
a computer to Port 5, the
Uplink port is disabled.
Similarly, if you connect a
hub to the Uplink port,
Port 5 is disabled.
Important Safety Information
Warning: Warnings contain directions that you must follow for
your personal safety. Follow all directions carefully. You must
read the following safety information carefully before you install or remove the unit.
• Exceptional care must be taken during the installation and
removal of the unit.
• To ensure compliance with international safety standards, only
use the power adapter that is supplied with the hub.
• The socket outlet must be near to the unit and easily ac
cessible. You can only remove power from the unit by dis
connecting the power cord from the outlet.
• This unit operates under SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage)
conditions according to IEC 950. The conditions are only
maintained if the equipment to which it is connected also
operates under SELV conditions.
• There are no user-replaceable fuses or user-serviceable
parts inside the hub. If you have a physical problem with
the unit that cannot be solved with problem solving actions
in this guide, contact your supplier.
• Disconnect the power adapter before moving the unit.
Warning: The RJ-45 ports are shielded RJ-45 data sockets.
They cannot be used as telephone sockets. Only connect RJ-45
data connectors to these sockets.

Connecting Hubs Together
If you want to expand your network beyond the five computer
ports available on your hub, you can connect up to four standard
Ethernet hubs together in a "daisy chain" (that is, hub 1 to hub
2, and so on).
Before you connect your hubs together, make sure that they are
turned off.
1. Insert one end of an Ethernet cable into the Uplink port on
the HomeConnect hub.
2. Insert the other end of the Ethernet cable into one of the
computer ports on theother hub. Do not insert the cable
into the Uplink port on the other hub.
3. Turn on the hubs.
The Port Status LEDs for the ports you have used should be
green. If they are not, check your connections and make sure
that the cabling is secure and not pulled too tightly.
Note:
When connecting standard Ethernet hubs together, make sure that the
Ethernet cable connecting
one hub to another is not
longer than 328 feet.
The HomeConnect hub automatically recognizes the other hub.

Hub Troubleshooting
Power LED not lit.
The power adapter may not be plugged in correctly, or the power
adapter is bad. Check all of your power adapter connections. If
the problem persists, you may have a bad power adapter. Replace only with another HomeConnect hub power adapter.
The LED corresponding to a port that has a connection is not
lit
The most common cause is a defective network adapter or cable
connection.
First, check that the Ethernet cable connectors are firmly inserted in the proper ports. If the problem persists, try using
another Ethernet cable.
If you have purchased additional Ethernet cables that are not a
part of the home network kit, make sure that they are "straightthrough" cables, rather than "crossover" cables.
Finally, check that the devices being connected to the hub are
powered on and operating correctly.
The Collision LED is lit
The Collision LED flashes each time a collision is detected on
the network. Collisions are part of normal network operation. if
the LED appears to be continually lit, however, there may be a
fault on your network. Check the following:
• Your network setup-make sure that your network is set up
correctly with the proper cabling.
• The equipment that is connected to your hub-make sure
that there are no faulty devices on your network. A faulty
device could be producing excess traffic that is flooding
the network.
The link between two HomeConnect hubs does not work.
If you cannot get a link established between two HomeConnect
hubs, check your hub connections carefully (see "Connecting
Hubs Together" earlier in this guide for more information) and
make sure that the Ethernet cable connectors are seated firmly
in their ports. If the problem persists, try another Ethernet
cable, or check for a "network loop," which occurs when two
devices in a network are connected by two cables. Each device
on your network only needs one cable connection to a hub.
Also, make sure that you do not connect the Uplink port on one
hub to the Uplink port on the other hub.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find out if USB is enabled on my computer?
Go to your Windows 98 desktop. Right-click the My Computer
icon. Click Properties. Click the Device Manager tab. Doubleclick Universal Serial Bus Controller. If USB is enabled on your
computer, you will see the text Universal/Open Host Controller.
Do I need to turn off my computer before connecting or disconnecting the USB Network Adapter?
No. You can connect the USB Network Adapter to your computer
with the power turned on.
What do I do if the USB ports on my computer are already
connected to other USB devices?
You could use a USB hub. See "What is a USB hub?" for more
information.
What is a USB hub?
A USB hub is a peripheral device that expands the number of
USB ports available on your computer. A USB hub cannot be
used to link computers together in a network the same way that
an Ethernet hub is used. It is simply a device for connecting
more USB devices (such as scanners, printers, and game controllers) to your computer.
How does the USB Network Adapter compare to a traditional
network adapter card?
The USB Network Adapter performs exactly the same function
as a traditional network adapter card, with the added benefit of
not having to open the computer to install it. One key difference
is in transmission speed: network adapter cards are available in
10 Mbps or 100 Mbps varieties; however, because of speed
limitations of the USB port, the USB Network Adapter is only
available in 10 Mbps.
Can I connect more than one USB Network Adapter to a computer at a time?
No. You should only attach one USB Network Adapter to a computer at any one time.
Can I unplug the USB Network Adapter while my computer is
powered on?
If you disconnect your USB Network Adapter from your computer and then reconnect it, some computers on your network
may not be able to see your computer. If this happens, shut
down your computer and restart your computer.
Can I connect two USB Network Adapters back to back?
It is not recommended that you use this configuration.

HomeClick installs two network protocols:
TCP/IP TCP/IP is automatically "bound" to every network
adapter and dial-up adapter you have installed.
IPX/SPX IPX/SPX is automatically "bound" to the network
adapter used for your home network. If you are using the
HomeConnect network adapter, IPX/SPX is bound to that network apdapter.

Appendix B
Security for High-Speed Internet Connections
When you first run the Network Setup Wizard your printers are
automatically shared so they are available to your home network. You are also given the option to share drives and folders
so they are available to the network. When you are using the
Internet through a modem or high-speed Internet connection, it
may be possible for computers on the Internet to access the
shared printers, drives, and folders on your home network.
To prevent computers on the Internet from accessing the shared
files and printers on your home computers, HomeClick automatically disables File and Printer sharing on all dial-up connections, such as those you use with a modem to connect to the
Internet.
Note
When using Internet
Connection Sharing, the
Connection Sharing Computer must be on to make
the Internet connection
available to the other
computers on the network.
If you have a high-speed Internet connection, such as ADSL or
cable modem, and you are using one network adapter and hub
for both your Internet connection and your home network connection, HomeClick cannot disable File and Printer sharing on
the Internet connection. This means that the computers on the
Internet have access to shared files and printers on the computers on your network.
To make your home network more secure, use two network
adapters on one of the computers on your network. Use one
network adapter for your home network and use the other for
your high-speed Internet connection. Then, use Internet Connection Sharing to share the Internet connection with the other
computers on your home network. HomeClick can then disable
File and Printer Sharing on the network adapter that is used for
the Internet connection, which prevents shared resources from
being accessible from computers on the Internet.
For more information about creating a secure home network,
while using a high-speed Internet connection, contact your
Internet Service Provider.
