This section provides an overview of the repeater's components including the
LED indicators, connection ports, and uplink switch.
The 10base-T repeater features several LED indicators that help you monitor
and manage the repeater. The LEDs on the left side of the front panel provide
the power, segmentation, and collision status of the repeater. The LEDs above
the RJ-45 ports indicate activity at those ports. The repeater also provides an
LED that indicates any activity on the Media Expansion Port (MEP).
The following table lists the possible colors and statuses of each LED and
describes the meaning of each condition.
