Quick Installation Guide
Stacking Hubs on a Flat Surface
Making a Connection via the MDI Daisy-Chain Port
This hub can be stacked anywhere
there is a enough flat space, such as
on a table or desktop.
1. To make a direct connection to a compatible hub or switch, use the MDI daisychain port (Port 16). When connecting to this port, remember to set the port
selection switch to MDI. You can also connect any RJ-45 (MDI-X) port on the
hub to an MDI daisy-chain port on the other device.
1. Stick the self-adhesive rubber foot
pads (that come with this package)
on each of the 4 concave spaces located on the bottom of the first hub.
2. Place the first hub on a firm flat surface where you want to install the stack.
3. Repeat step 1 for each hub before stacking them. The rubber foot pads cushion
the hub against shock/vibrations and provide space between each hub for
ventilation.
Mounting Hubs in a Rack
Please comply with the following
instructions to ensure that your hub
is securely mounted in the rack.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Use a standard EIA 19-inch rack.
Use the brackets and screws supplied in the rack mounting kit.
Use a cross-head screwdriver to attach the brackets to the side of the hub.
Position the hub in the rack by lining up the holes in the brackets with the
appropriate holes on the rack, and then use the supplied screws to mount the
hub in the rack.
Connecting the Hub System
This hub has 16 RJ-45 ports, one of which also serves as an (MDI) daisy-chain
port. It also has one BNC port on the rear panel for connection to thin Ethernet
(10BASE2), and one AUI port for connection to thick Ethernet (10BASE5) or fiber
(10BASE-F).
Making a Connection via an MDI-X Station Port
You can connect any RJ-45 (MDI-X) station port on the hub to any device that uses
a standard network interface such as a PC or server, or to a network
interconnection device such as a bridge or router (depending on the port type
implemented).
1. Prepare the network devices you wish to network. Make sure you have installed
10BASE-T network interface cards for connecting to the hub's
RJ-45 (MDI-X) station ports. You also need to prepare straight-through shielded
or unshielded twisted-pair cables with RJ-45 plugs at both ends. Use 100W
Category 3, 4 or 5 cable for all RJ-45 connections.
2. Connect one end of the cable to the RJ-45 port of the network interface card,
and the other end to any available (MDI-X) station port on the hub. When inserting
an RJ-45 plug, be sure the tab on the plug clicks into position to ensure that it is
properly seated. Using the hub in a stand-alone configuration, you can network up
to 16 end nodes.
I Do not plug a phone jack connector into any RJ-45 port. This may damage the
hub. Instead, use only twisted-pair cables with RJ-45 connectors that conform
with FCC standards.
Notes: 1. Make sure each twisted-pair cable does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
2. When using Port 16 as an MDI-X port, set the port selection switch to 16MDI-X.
2
2. Prepare straight-through shielded or unshielded twisted-pair cables with RJ-45
plugs at both ends. Use 100W Category 3, 4 or 5 cable for all RJ-45
connections. When inserting an RJ-45 plug, be sure the tab on the plug clicks
into position to ensure that it is properly seated.
Notes: 1. To connect to another hub or switch, you may also attach to (MDI-X)
station ports at both ends if you use crossover cabling (see page 6).
2. When using Port 16 as an MDI port, set the port selection switch to 16MDI.
3. When connecting to another 10Mbps hub, you can cascade up to 4 hubs,
and use up to 100 meters (328 feet) for each inter-hub link.
4. To achieve a larger network diameter, you should use a switch to connect
several hubs (or stacks) together. Because a switch breaks up the path
for connected devices into separate collision domains, it has no
restrictions on cascade length.
Making a Connection to the BNC Port
Plug the BNC T-type connector (provided with the hub) into a BNC port on the
module. When connecting two devices via BNC ports, there should be at least 0.5
meters (1.64 feet) of coaxial cable between the two BNC ports. A thin Ethernet
coaxial cable segment can be extended up to 185 meters (607 feet) and can link up
to 30 nodes. If the unit is at the terminal end of a segment, connect a 50W
terminator to the open end of the "T" connector.
Making a Connection to the AUI Port
Thick Ethernet - Attach an AUI to 10BASE5 transceiver to the thick Ethernet trunk,
and then run an AUI drop cable (with 15-pin D-type connectors on both ends)
between the AUI port on the hub and the transceiver. Note that the maximum
length of an AUI drop cable is 50 meters (164 feet). A thick Ethernet segment can
be extended up to 500 meters (1640 feet) and can link up to 100 nodes.
Fiber - Attach a 10BASE-F fiber optic transceiver to the AUI port. Use 50/125µm or
62.5/125µm multi-mode fiber optic cabling with SC or ST-type connectors (depending
on the transceiver). Run cabling from the TX/RX ports on this hub to the RX/TX
ports on the other device. When inserting the cable, be sure the tab on the plug
clicks into position to ensure that it is properly seated. Note that 10Mbps fiber can
be extended up to 2 kilometers (1.24 miles).
Powering on the Hub
1. Plug the power cord into the power socket at the rear of the hub, and the other
end into a power outlet.
2. Turn on the power switch on the back of the hub.
3. Check the LED marked Power on the front panel to see if it is on. The unit
will automatically select the setting that matches the connected input voltage.
Therefore, no additional adjustments are necessary when connecting it to any
input voltage within the range marked on the rear panel.
Note: The unit supports a "hot remove" feature which permits you to connect/
disconnect RJ-45 or other media cables without powering off the hub and
without disrupting the operation of the devices attached to the hub.

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Hub Indicators
The hub can be easily monitored through panel indicators to assist the network
manager in identifying problems. This section describes common problems you
may encounter and possible solutions.
Symptom: Power indicator does not light up (green) after power on.
Cause:
Defective power outlet, power cord, or internal power supply.
Solution: Check the power outlet by plugging in another device that is functioning
properly. Check the power cord with another device. If these measures fail
to resolve the problem, have the unit's power supply replaced by a qualified
Accton distributor.
Symptom: Link indicator does not light up (green) after making a connection.
Cause:
Network interface (e.g., a network adapter card on the attached device),
network cable, or hub port is defective.
Solution: Verify that the hub and attached device are powered on. Be sure the cable is
plugged into both the hub and attached device. Check the adapter on the
attached device and cable connections for possible defects. See if your
cable is functioning properly by using it for another port and attached device
that displays valid indications when connected to the network. Replace the
defective adapter or cable if necessary. Also verify that you have not
exceeded specified limits for any attached media as summarized in the
following table:

Quick Installation Guide
Power and Cooling Problems
If the power indicator does not turn on when the power cord is plugged in, you may
have a problem with the power outlet, power cord, or internal power supply as
explained in the previous section. However, if the unit powers off after running for a
while, check for loose power connections, power losses or surges at the power
outlet, and verify that the fan on back of the unit is unobstructed and running prior
to shutdown. If you still cannot isolate the problem, then the internal power supply
may be defective. In this case, contact your Accton distributor for assistance.
Installation
Verify that all system components have been properly installed. If one or more
components appear to be malfunctioning (e.g., the power cord or network cabling),
test them in an alternate environment where you are sure that all the other
components are functioning properly.
