Connect devices 2 to the hub

Plug each cable into an RJ-45 port at the rear of the hub.

Use Category 5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling to connect 100Base-TX devices to the hub.

Use Category 3, 4, or 5 UTP cabling to connect 10Base-T devices to the hub.

Make sure cable length doesn’t

exceed 100 meters (328 feet). Plug network cables into the ports at the rear of the hub.

Each port automatically detects and matches the speed of the attached device (10Mbps or 100Mbps).

All ports communicate with each other, regardless of speed.

3 Check for links

Each port at the rear of the hub has a corresponding LED on the front of the hub. Make sure the LED of each port you’re using shows a green link light at either 10 or 100Mbps.

Each port automatically matches the speed of the attached device.

Indicates link status when a device is attached.

Frequently asked questions

Does each port operate at 10Mbps or 100Mbps?

Yes. Each port on the Express 130T Standalone Hub is capable of 10Mbps or 100Mbps half-duplex operation.

Do I have to set a port’s speed?

No. Ports on the Express 130T Standalone Hub automatically detect and match the speed of an attached device.

Do ports operating at different speeds communicate with each other?

Yes. The Express 130T Standalone Hub’s internal bridge allows all ports to communicate with each other, regardless of operating speed.

Can I connect the Express 130T Standalone hub to another hub?

Yes. For connection guidelines, see “Connecting to Hubs and Switches” on page 6.

Can I configure the Express 130T Standalone Hub for full-duplex operation?

No. Hubs do not support full-duplex operation.

Can I wall mount the Express 130T Standalone Hub?

Yes. Using the two wall mount hole guides on this page, mark and drill into the wall where you want to mount the hub. Then insert the provided screws into the wall and hang the hub.

Overview

The Intel Express 130T Standalone Hub is an 8-port hub that operates at 10 or 100Mbps.

All ports on the hub are capable of 10 or 100Mbps half-duplex operation.

Each port on the hub automatically detects the highest possible speed of an attached device (either 10Mbps or 100Mbps) and matches that speed.

The Express 130T Standalone Hub’s internal bridge allows all ports to communicate with each other, regardless of operating speed.

The Intel Express 130T Standalone Hub monitors port status, network traffic, and collisions at both 10 and 100Mbps.

This User Guide describes how to install, connect, and troubleshoot the hub.
