3.4 Interconnection to Hubs and Switches
3.4.1 Connecting to Ethernet Hubs : The factors governing hub
• The hubs are only connected by uplink port. ALH-316ds/324ds will
automatically transmit at 10Mbps network speed when connecting to
10Mbps Ethernet hubs and 100Mbps network speed if connected to
• If multiple ALH-316ds/324ds are stacked together, users can connect to
hubs by the bridge uplink port in master/slave hubs. , as shown in Figure
3.4.2 Connecting to Ethernet Switches : The factors governing hub and
switch interconnection are:
• The hubs are only connected to Ethernet switches by an uplink port.
ALH-316ds/324ds will automatically work at 100Mbps network speed
when connected to 10/100Mbps Ethernet switching ports and it will work
at 10Mbps network speed if connected to 10Mbps switching ports.
