FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed
and used properly, that is, in strict accordance with the instructions provided with
the equipment, may cause interference to radio and TV reception. The
equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A
computing device in accordance with the specifications in Subpart B of Part 15
of FCC rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such
interference in a commercial environment. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If you suspect this equipment is causing interference, turn your hub on and off
while your radio or TV is showing interference to determine the source of the
interference.
You can try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
1. Reorient the receiving radio or TV antenna where this may be done safely.
2. To the extent possible, relocate the radio, TV or the other receiver away
from the equipment.
3. Plug the computer which has the equipment installed into a different power
outlet so that equipment and the receiver are on different branch circuits.
If necessary, you should consult the place of purchase or an experienced radio/
television technician for additional suggestion.
CAUTION : The phone jack cannot be connected to telephone system.

55 Installation
1. Operating Environment
ER-5398S must be installed and operated within the limits of specified operating
temperature and humidity (see previous section under Specifications). Do not place
objects on top of the unit. Do not obstruct any vents at the sides of the unit. Do not
position the hub 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 to network devices with UTP cable
Connect one end of the network cable to any of the RJ-45 ports on the front panel of
ER-5398S, and connect the other end of the network cable to the RJ-45 port of the
network device. The network cables must comply with EIA/TIA 568 specifications
and minimum Category 3 standard for 10Mbps data transmission. Maximum length
between the hub and workstation is 100 meters (300ft). Once the network cable is
connected on both ends and the attached network devices are powered on, the green
LNK/Rx (Link Status) LED should be lit.

3. Uplink to Another Hub with UTP cable
Use uplink port to connect to another hub as illustrated in Figure 1-2. Connect one
end of the network cable to the uplink port and connect the other end to any of the
regular port in the other hub (except the uplink port). Connecting cable must comply
with EIA/TIA 568 specifications and Category 3 standards to connect the hubs.
Once the network cable is connected and both hubs are powered on, the green
LNK/Rx (Link Status) LED should be lit. The maximum length of the uplink cable
shall not exceed 100 meters (300 feet).
NOTE: Do not use the uplink port and 16th port at the same time.

4. Connecting network devices with coaxial cables
ER-5398S provides two auto-detect
BNC/AUI coaxial ports, each can
function as either BNC or as AUI but
can be used at the same time. A set
of configuration DIP switches are
located between port 1 and port 2,
they can be used to configure the
coaxial port as auto-detect, BNC only
or AUI only as illustrated in Figure 5-2
and Table 5-1.

NOTE : The default setting is autodetect mode.

When using the BNC port, attach the T-connector to the BNC port on the rear panel
and connect the coaxial cables to the both open ends of the T-connector as illustrated
in Figure 5-3. If the ER-5398S is at either end of the coaxial segment, make sure
terminate the open end of T-connector with a 50-ohm terminator. When using the
AUI port, firmly attach the AUI transceiver to the AUI port and secure the
transceiver into the socket. The AUI transceiver’s SQE (Heart Beat) should be set
off.
Note : Do not connect coaxial cable directly to the BNC port without using Tconnector.

66 Trouble-shooting
1. Power LED is not lit
l Check if the power cord is properly connected to the power outlet and the hub.
Make sure the power switch on the hub is turned ON.
2. LNK/Rx LED is not lit after connecting to an active workstation
l Check the power switch of the network devices attached to the hub; make sure
they are turned ON.
l Check the network cable; make sure it is properly connected to the hub and the
network device.
l Check the network cable; make sure the cable complies with EIA/TIA 568
specification. Use straight-through minimum Category 3 grade cables.
l Do not use uplink port to connect to a workstation.
3. Uplink (16th) port’s LNK/Rx LED is not lit after uplink to another hub
l Check the network cable; make sure it is properly connected to both hubs. One
end of the cable should be connected to uplink port while the other end of the
cable should be connected to a regular port. Do not connect the cable to both
uplink ports.
l Check the network cable; make sure the cable complies with EIA/TIA 568
specification.
l Check the length of the network cable does not exceed 100 meters (300 feet).
l Make sure both hubs are powered ON.
4. AUI/BNC ports do not transmit
l Check the DIP switch setting.
l Check the AUI transceiver; make sure the SQE is set at OFF.
l Check the attachment of coaxial cable; make sure there’s no loose connection.
l Check the coaxial cable; make sure the segment is terminated with 50-ohm
terminator.
9
5. Partition LED is lit
l Check the connected devices. The hub will automatically partition a defective
Ethernet device which causing excessive errors.
6. Collision LED is constantly flashing
l Remove all the network cables; connect the cables back one by one to isolate the
source of the collision.
l Check the network cable, inferior cable quality will result in excessive collision
and error packets.
7. Jabbler LED is constantly flashing
l Check the connected devices. Remove all the network cables; connect the cables
back one by one to isolate the source of the jabber.
