Installing the HP 10/100 Hubs
Sample Network Topologies
Cascading HP 10/100 Hubs – 10 and 100 Mbps
"straight-through" cable for
connection to server
10 Mbps cascade
connections. Up to 5 hubs
can be cascaded at 10 Mbps
10/100 Hub 12
Description
The two previous topologies could be combined. Because the HP 10/100 hubs can connect to both
10 Mbps and 100 Mbps devices simultaneously, a topology similar to the one in the above illustration
is possible. The 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps end nodes communicate with each other through the "speed
matching" bridge that is internal in each of the HP 10/100 hubs.
Cables Used
10 Mbps connections: category 3, 4, or 5 100 ohm unshielded twisted-pair cable.
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 connections: 5 meters for 100 Mbps; 100 meters for 10 Mbps
Connection
Hub-to-end node connections: 100 meters for 10 or 100 Mbps
