Introduction

Intended Audience: This manual assumes that the user has a general working knowledge of networking principles and is familiar with network systems in general.

Congratulations on the purchase of your Kingston Fast EtheRx Stackable 10/100TX Rack-MountableDual Speed hub. There are three models available:KND810TX (8-portmodel),KND1610TX (16-portmodel)KND2410TX (24-portmodel). The KND810TX and KND1610TX can be used on a desktop or standard 19”rack-mountinstallation, using the extended mounting brackets provided with the unit. The KND2410TX is a full 19”rack-mountunit. The Fast EtheRx Stackable 10/100TXDual-Speedhubs conform to IEEE802.3u100BASE-TX,IEEE802.3i10BASE-T,and IEEE802.3 CSMA/CD standards. Using any combination of thedual-speedhubs, you can stack up to a maximum of four hubs.

For ease of installation, the Fast EtheRx Stackable Dual Speed hubs offer eight (8), sixteen (16), or twenty-four(24) UTP ports thatauto-negotiate10/100Mbps operation and an uplink port that allows the last UTP port on the hub to support both crossover andstraight-throughcabling. By default port 7 & 8 (KND810TX & KND1610TX) or port 23 & 24 (KND2410TX) are set forauto-negotiationbut can be manually configured for either 10Mbps or 100Mbps operation, using the dip switches located on the back of the unit. Ideal forinter-connecting10BASE-TEthernet networks with100BASE-TXFast Ethernet networks, the Fast EtheRxDual-speedhubs can also be used as simple standalone10BASE-Tor100BASE-TXrepeaters. For easytrouble-shooting,the front panel includes a variety of diagnostic LEDs such as Power, Collision for 10Mbps and 100Mbps, 100TX, Link, and Activity status.

For the remainder of this manual, the Fast EtheRx Stackable 10/100TX Dual-Speedhubs will be referred to collectively as the Fast EtheRxDual-Speedhubs:

Design Features

The Fast EtheRx dual-speedhub complies with the full set of repeater basic functions as defined by IEEE802.3u100BASE-TX,IEEE802.3i10BASE-T,and IEEE802.3 CSMA/CD standards.

Repeater Functions

If any single port senses the start of a valid packet on its receiving line, the dual-speedhub willre-transmitthe received data to all other ports on the network. There-transmissionof packets complies with the IEEE 802.3 specification in terms of preamble structure, voltage amplitude, and timing characteristics.

Auto-Negotiation

Auto-Negotiationprovides the means of automatically establishing a link by detecting the link capabilities of the connected device on the network to select the best operational mode available (i.e. 10/100Mbps selection)

Receive Jabber Protection

The dual-speedhub uses a Receive Jabber Protection scheme to ensure that the network is not disabled due to reception of excessively long data packets.

Collision-Handling

The dual-speedhub will detect and respond to collision conditions as outlined in the IEEE 802.3 specifications.

Error-Handling

With 100BASE-TXFast Ethernet, the newerror-handlingfeature prevents substandard links from generating streams of false carrier and interfering with other links.

Automatic Port Partitioning / Reconnection

If any of the ports on the dual-speedhub experience excessive collisions, or faulty conditions, that particular port can be partitioned. Once partitioned, the hub will continue to monitor that port. If the error conditions have been corrected or a good data packet is received or transmitted without a collision, the hub will automatically reconnect that port to the network.

Power LED

The green LED indicates the power status. The LED will light up when the AC power connector is properly connected to a power source.

Collision LEDs

There are two (2) separate collision LEDs for both 10Mbps and 100Mbps segments. If a collision is detected on a 10Mbps segment, the “10” LED will flash amber. If a collision is detected on a 100Mbps segment, the “100” LED will flash amber. Collisions occur when 2 or more ports receive data simultaneously

100TX (Speed-Detection)LEDs

The 100TX LED lights up when 100Mbps operation is detected. The 100TX LED will not light up if 10Mbps operation is detected.

Link / Activity LEDs

The LINK / ACTIVITY LEDs service both 10BASE-Tand100BASE-TXoperation. A steady green light indicates that a good link has been established. A flashing green light indicates that data is being received.

If the Link LED does not display a steady green link light, please check the following:
