Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Kensington Security Slot Secure the lock (not provided) into the security slot to prevent the device from being stolen. Grounding Terminal The switch already comes with lightning protection mechanism. You can also ground the switch through the PE (Protecting Earth) cable of AC cord or with Ground Cable. For detailed information, please refer to Chapter 3 Lightning Protection.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Chapter 2 Installation 2.1 Package Contents Make sure that the package contains the following items. If any of the listed items is damaged or missing, please contact your distributor. One Switch One Power Cord, One Console Installation Guide Cable and One USB Cable T2600-...
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Please keep a proper temperature and humidity in the equipment room. Too high/low humidity may lead to bad insulation, electricity leakage, mechanical property changes and corrosions. Too high temperature may accelerate aging of the insulation materials and can thus significantly shorten the service life of the device.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch instant current is strong enough to damage electronic devices, more effective lightning protection measures should be taken. Ensure the rack and device are well earthed. ■ Make sure the power socket has a good contact with the ground. ■...
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch 3. Turnover the device and attach the supplied rubber feet to the recessed areas on the bottom at each corner of the device. Feet Bottom of the Device Notch Figure 2-1 Desktop Installation Rack Installation ■ To install the device in an EIA standard-sized, 19-inch rack, follow the instructions described below: 1.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Chapter 3 Lightning Protection 3.1 Cabling Reasonably In the actual network environment, you may need cable outdoors and indoors, and the requirements for cabling outdoors and indoors are different. A reasonable cabling system can decrease the damage of induced lightning to devices. Note: It’s not recommended using Ethernet cables outdoors.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Requirements for the distance between Ethernet cable and other pipelines are shown ■ in the table. Ethernet Cable Other Pipelines Min Parallel Net Length Min Parallel-overlapping Net Height L (mm) H (mm) Down-conductor 1000 Service pipe Compressed air pipe Thermal pipe (not wrapped) 500 Thermal pipe (wrapped)
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch 3.2 Connect to Ground Connecting the device to ground is to quickly release the lightning over-voltage and over-current of the device, which is also a necessary measure to protect the body from electric shock. In different environments, the device may be grounded differently. The following will instruct you to connect the device to the ground in two ways, connecting to the grounding bar or connecting to the ground via the power cord.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Note: The figure is to illustrate the application and principle. The power cord you get from ■ the package and the socket in your situation will comply with the regulation in your country, so they may differ from the figure above. If you intend to connect the device to the ground via the PE (Protecting Earth) cable ■...
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch 3.4 Use Lightning Arrester Power lightning arrester and signal lightning arrester are used for lighting protection. Power lightning arrester is used for limiting the voltage surge due to a lightning. If an outdoor AC power cord should be directly connected to the device, please use a power lightning arrester.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Chapter 4 Connection 4.1 Ethernet Port Connect the Ethernet ports of the switch to the network devices by RJ45 cable as the following figure shows. RJ45 Port RJ45 Cable T260 0-28 Figure 4-1 Connecting the RJ45 Port 4.2 SFP Port Figure 4-2 demonstrates the connection of SFP port to an SFP module.
Figure 4-3 SFP module The following table shows the detailed information of two SFP modules (TL-SM311LS and TL-SM311LM) produced by TP-LINK, which makes you have a round idea about it so as to give you a reference for choosing the suitable SFP module.

Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Chapter 5 Confi guration 5.1 Confi gure the Switch via GUI 1. To access the GUI of the switch, open a web browser and type the default management address http://192.168.0.1 in the address field of the browser, then press the Enter key.
The Micro-USB connector takes precedence over the RJ-45 connector. Install the TP-LINK USB Console Driver if you are using the USB serial port for the first time on a Windows-based PC. The driver can be found on the attached CD and Download page of our official website.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Logon by Telnet ■ To log on to the switch by a Telnet connection, please take the following steps: 1. Firstly CLI commands about configuring Telnet login mode and login authentication information should be configured through Console connection. For more details please refer to the CLI Reference Guide on the resource CD.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Appendix A Troubleshooting What could I do if I forgot the username and password of the switch? 1. Connect the console port of the PC to the console port of the switch and open a terminal emulation program.
Gigabit L2 Managed Switch Why does the terminal emulation program display abnormally? Please check as follows: 1. Make sure the power supply is normal and the console cable is properly connected. 2. Check if the console cable is the right type. 3.
