You may need to get some cables and other equipment for connecting
your workstations and other hubs to the PS Hub. Your supplier should
stock these cables and equipment. For information on how the cables'
pins are connected, refer to "Cabling" on page A-3.
To connect workstations to your hub, you need:
One 'Straight-through' 10BASE-T cable for every workstation.
We recommend you use shielded 10BASE-T cables. The maximum
length you can use is 100m (328ft).
In order to comply with the 10BASE-T standard, ports designed for
workstation connections have been marked with the graphical symbol
'x'. This denotes a crossover in the port's internal wiring, for example
1x, 2x, 3x...
For information on connecting workstations to your hub, refer to
"Connecting Workstations to Your Hub" on page 3-11.
