Description
For 10Base-T networks, up to five hubs may be cascaded together. Three hubs are shown in the
above illustration. The server should be connected at 100 Mbps to reduce bottlenecks as multiple
users attempt to access the server.
Cables Used
10 Mbps connections: Category 3, 4, or 5 "crossover" twisted pair cable for hub-to-hub (MDI-X–
to–MDI-X) connections. Use "straight-through" cable if one of the hub ports used in the connection
is set to MDI mode. For connections to end nodes (PCs, workstations, servers, printers and other
peripherals), use straight-through cable.
100 Mbps connections: Category 5 "straight-through" twisted pair cable only
Maximum
10 Mbps connections: 100 meters for both hub-to-end node and hub-to-hub connections
Connection
100 Mbps connections: 100 meters for connections to end nodes
Lengths
2-14
