Introduction

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

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Kingston Fast EtheRx 10/100BASE-TX19”Rack-MountableFast Ethernet Switch, model KNS1600/R. The Fast EtheRx Switch is ahigh-performance10/100BASE-TXswitch ideal for thesmall-to-mediumbusinesses. The Fast EtheRx Switch has sixteen (16) UTP ports thatauto-negotiatespeed detection for10/100BASE-TXandhalf-duplex /full-duplexmode operation. It is basically designed to allow Standard10BASE-TEthernet networks to communicate with100BASE-TXFast Ethernet networks and to segment both 10Mbps and 100Mbps networks. The Fast EtheRx Switch complies with IEEE802.3u100BASE-TX,IEEE802.3i10BASE-T,and IEEE802.3 CSMA/CD Ethernet Standards.

The Fast EtheRx Switch may be used in both standard desktop and 19” rackmount installations (using the mounting brackets provided with the unit) and requires no hardware or software configuration.

The last port on the Fast EtheRx Switch has two RJ-45connectors to support UTP cabling in the straight through and/or crossover wiring configurations. For easy recognition of network status and troubleshooting, the front panel includes a variety of diagnostic LEDs including Power, 100TX Speed Detection, Link, Receive, Transmit, Collision, andFull-Duplexstatus.

For the remainder of this manual, the KNS1600/R will be referred to as the Fast EtheRx Switch.

Compliance Standards

The Fast EtheRx Switch complies with the 10/100Mbps functions as defined by IEEE802.3u 100BASE-TX,IEEE802.3i10BASE-T,and IEEE802.3 CSMA/CD Ethernet standards.

Design Features

Switching Function

The Fast EtheRx Switch is basically designed to bridge Standard 10BASE-TEthernet networks to100BASE-TXFast Ethernet networks and to segment 10Mbps or 100Mbps network segments.

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.10/100BASE-TXselection,half- /full-duplexmode operation, etc.)

Full-Duplex

Full-Duplextransmission means that dedicated inbound and outbound channels are established forbi-directionaltransmission of data. This allows the collision detection mechanism (CSMA/CD) to beby-passed,thus decreasing transmission delay normally caused by listening, collisions, and packet resends when operating inhalf-duplexmode.

Store-and-ForwardSwitching

The Fast EtheRx Switch uses a packet-forwardingmethod calledStore-and- Forward, which minimizes there-transmissionof faulty data packets. This means that the Fast EtheRx Switch can store the incoming frame in an internal buffer and check the packet for errors before sending it out to the destination port. If the frame does contain errors, it will be discarded and then retransmitted.

Flow Control

The Fast EtheRx Switch implements a collision-basedflow control mechanism that reduces the risk of data being lost at the congested ports. This is accomplished by forcing a collision with the data frames on all ports once thefree-bufferqueue has reached thepre-setminimum.

Front Panel

Hardware Installation

Before you begin installing network cables, please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with Fast EtheRx Switch. The functions on the front and rear panels are illustrated in the following sections.

Front Panel

Power LED

The PWR LED indicates the power status of the Fast EtheRx switch. The LED will light up steady green when the AC power cord is connected to the unit from a power source and the power switch on the unit has been turned on.

100BASE-TX(100TX) LED

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

LINK/ACT LED (for both 10 and 100Mbps)

The LINK/ACT LED uses a single LED to display two functions. A steady green light indicates that a good link has been established, and a flashing green light indicates when data is being received or transmitted. If the LED does not display solid green indicating a good link, check the following:

1.Make sure that the power is turned on for both the Fast EtheRx Switch and the attached device.

2.Verify that the drivers for the network adapter have been

loaded on the PC. Some network adapters require that the driver be loaded before establishing a proper link.

3.Make sure the cable is wired properly and connected on both ends.

4.Make sure the correct cable type has been selected.

5.If steps 1 through 4 are correct, please check the cable, as it may be defective or wired incorrectly. Replace the cable and try again. Please refer to Appendix A for Pin Assignments and Appendix B forCabling Guidelines.

Full Duplex and Collision LED

The FDX/COLL LED uses a dual color LED to display two functions. A solid green light indicates that Full-Duplexoperation has been detected. A flashing amber light indicates that a collision has occurred inhalf-duplexmode. FullDuplex mode isauto-negotiatedon all UTP ports.

UTP Ports

The Fast EtheRx Switch has sixteen (16) 10/100Mbps UTP ports that autonegotiate 10/100BASE-TXconnections and halforfull-duplexmode operation. The last UTP port has twoRJ-45port connectors for support of UTP cabling in the crossover orstraight-throughwiring configuration. Only one of the two ports may be utilized.

The RJ-45port markedis internally crossed like all other UTP ports. By default, all repeater and switched UTP ports are generally configured as standardMDI-X,or internally crossed ports. With astraight-throughcable, this port can be used for cascading to a standard MDI device, such as a network adapter or router. With a crossover cable, this port can be used for cascading to anotherMDI-Xdevice, such as a hub.
