    1.4 Special Functions Auto MDI/MDI-X Function This function allows the TP port to auto-detect the twisted-pair signals and adapts itself to form a valid MDI to MDI-X connection with the remote connected device automatically. Auto-negotiation Function When TP port is set on Auto-negotiation mode (SW1:ON), it is featured with auto-negotiation function and full capability.
  • Page 11 Link Fault Pass Through Function When this function is enabled, a link fault detected on the TP port will force a link down on the FX port. Similarly, a link fault detected on the FX port will also force a link down on the TP port. As illustrated in the following figure, this function allows to pass TP link fault to the remote link partner and makes the converter like a TP cable extender.

    2. Installation 2.1 Unpacking Check that the following components have been included: • Installation guide (or contained in the product CD) • 10/100 Media Converter • One AC power adapter If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.
  • Page 13: Applying Power

    2.3 Applying Power Before you begin the installation, check the AC voltage of your area. The AC power adapter which is used to supply the DC power for the unit should have the AC voltage matching the commercial power voltage in your area. The AC Power Adapter Specifications AC input power: AC power voltage of your area, options -...
