Cascading HP 10/100 Hubs – 100Base-TX Networks
"straight-through" cable for
connection to server
twisted-pair "crossover"
cables between hubs, or
"straight-through" cable if
hub port 1 is used and set to
MDI mode
Description
For 100Base-T networks, only two hubs may be cascaded together, as shown in the above
illustration. Connect end nodes (PCs, workstations, servers, printers, and other peripherals) to the
HP 10/100 hubs by using "straight-through" twisted-pair cables. The server should be connected
at 100 Mbps to reduce bottlenecks as multiple users attempt to access the server.
Cables Used
100 Mbps connections: 100 ohm, Category 5 unshielded twisted pair cable only. For the connection
between the hubs, use crossover cable, unless one the hub ports used in the connection is set to
MDI mode; then use straight-through cable. For connections to the end nodes, use straight-through
cables.
Maximum
Hub-to-Hub connection: 5 meters for 100 Mbps
Connection
Hub-to-end node connections: 100 meters
