Installation
Before you install the switch, please check the following items in the package:



One 8-port Fast Ethernet Switch
One Power adapter
One user manual
1. Operating Environment
This switching hub must be installed and operated within the limits of specified operating temperature
0~40°C(32~104°F) and humidity (10~90% Non-condensing).
 Do not place objects on top of the unit.
 Do not obstruct any vents at the sides of the unit.
 Do not position the unit near any heating source such as heater, radiator or direct exposure to sun.
Prevent entering of water and moisture into the unit, If necessary, use dehumidifier to reduce humidity.
2. Connecting the power
Connect the power adapter to the power connector of the unit; the green Power LED on the front panel
should be lit.

Station Connection
Connect each station to the switch by twisted-pair cable. Plug one RJ-45 connector into a RJ-45 port of
the switch, and plug the other RJ-45 connector into the station’s network adapter. Power on the switch
and then system is ready.
Switches Connection
In making a switch interconnection, you could use any port to connect another switch with straight or
crossover cable. As all the ports support auto MDI / MDI-X function, using a straight cable to make a
switch-to-switch connection is allowed.
