INTRODUCTION
The Atlona passive VGA Extenders over 1 x CAT5/6/7 cable up to the distance of 330ft with resolutions
up to 1280x1024. The Atlona VGA Extenders are a perfect way of extending video signal away from the
computer. The advanced design allows no limitations or delays when using extender versus a direct
connection to the computer.
There extenders can be mixed and matched with each other. The wall plate transmitter can be matched
with “box” receiver and the other way around. Of course, the wall plate transmitter will perfectly work
with wall plate receiver and “box” transmitter with “box” receiver.
Combinations are below:
a. AT-WPVGA-S + AT-WPVGA-R
b. AT-VGA100-S + AT-VGA100-R
c. AT-WPVGA-S + AT-VGA100-R
d. AT-VGA100-S + AT-WPVGA-R
Plug and Play, no drivers or software needed, user will not even notice the difference when using an
extender versus a direct connection. The extenders required no external power.
The VGA Extenders are a great solution for many different applications, e.g., classroom, office environment, data-center, training room and many others where the computer must be placed further away
from the users display.

CONNECTION AND OPERATION
• Connect transmitter module to the VGA connection of a computer
• Connect display to the receiver module
• Install or use pre-existing CAT5, 6 or 7 cables
• Make sure to use a cable tester to check all wires are correctly terminated. (Incorrect Termination
may cause damage to the receiving module)
• Once connected, please refer to the Mode and Dip switch configuration

MODE SELECTION
Mode # 1: If your display is a projector or a new display 17-inch and up, please use Mode # 1
Mode # 2: If you are using a CRT monitor or a display under 17-inch, please switch to Mode # 2
DIP SWITCH
Filter
There are 5 dip-switchers on the receiving module. Each dip switch represents signal stability from 0
to 5, where #5 is the highest stability. The default mode is all dip-switchers are at the up position.
If the signal is going in and out or USB is freezing, please start by switching down the dip switch # 1,
if signal doesn’t become better, switch dip switch # 2 down and so on.
It is highly recommended using STP cable (Shielded Twisted Pair).
TROUBLESHOOTING
No Signal or it is going in and out:
a. Please test your RJ45 cables with a Fluke or similar tester to make sure that all the wires are connected and the distance is within the limits.
b. If you are using patch panel or and RJ45 wall plates, the distance will be reduced, please do a
direct connection bypassing all additional equipment.
c. Please try to re-terminate your CAT5/6/7 wire to 568B
d. Check the dip switch and mode configurations as they are very important when UTP wire is used.
e. Change the resolution on the computer to 800x600 or 1024x768
f. Change frequency to 60Hz
g. Try using STP Cable

d. Try using STP Cable
If you are terminating STP cable with a plastic CAT5 or CAT6 connector, please separate ground wire
and connect it to the Ground connection on the receiver module.
STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) Cable is recommended
