2. Installing the Switches

 

2.1 Unpacking

Check to see that you have everything before you start the installation.

  • Installation guide
  • The switch unit
  • Rubber magnet stand
  • One AC power adapter for the unit

2.2 Supply the Power

Check AC Power

Before you begin the installation, check the AC voltage of your area. The AC power adapter used to supply the DC power for the unit should have the AC voltage matching the commercial power voltage in your area. The specifications of the AC power adapter are:

  • AC input power:
AC power voltage of your area
  • DC output power:
Rating +7.5VDC min. 1.0A
  • DC plug type:

DC IN Jack

The DC power jack for the AC power adapter is located on the rear of the switch. Refer to section 1.2 drawing.

Installing the Switch

1. Install the switch with the AC power adapter provided.


2. Connect the power adapter cable to the switch before connecting the adapter to the AC outlet.

2.3 Port Configuration

The switches provide port configuration function through the management interface. The setting options are shown as follows:

Port Type
TP PORTS
FX PORT
Auto-negotiation
Enable / Disable
Not allowed
Speed options
100M / 10M
Not allowed (fixed 100M)
Duplex options
Full / Half
Not allowed (fixed Full)

 

 

When auto-negotiation is enabled, the speed and duplex settings become the port’s highest ability used for the auto-negotiation process. The final configurations used with the connected device may be different from the settings after negotiation between two devices. As auto-negotiation is disabled, the speed and duplex settings are the forced operating configuration for the connection.

The real time port status for each port connection can be monitored through the management interface. Status indicators are as follows:

Link Physical link status

Speed Connection speed used

Duplex Duplex mode used

Flow control Flow control status after negotiation


2.4 VLAN Function

The switches support two VLAN modes. One is Port-based VLAN and the other is 802.1Q VLAN.

The following configuration are supported:

  1. VLAN Mode: Port-based mode or 802.1Q mode
  2. VLAN mapping table setup: member ports setup for each group
  3. Per port PVID setup: PVID setting, Tag mode setting

Port-based VLAN Mode

  1. This mode supports 16 VLAN groups, Group 0 ~ Group 15.
  2. Packet forwarding is performed only among the member ports in the same group.
  3. Every packet, tagged or untagged, is forwarded from the input port to the output port transparently without any packet modification.
  4. Per port PVID setting is used for the index to the VLAN Group table. When a packet is received, the associated PVID setting of the input port is used to map to one VLAN group in the VLAN group table. The mapping index is retrieved from the least 4 bits (bit 3~0) of the PVID value.
  5. Tag mode settings are preset with an untagged mode for all ports and not changeable in Port-based VLAN mode.
  6. VLAN tag in every input tagged packet is ignored.

NOTE :
To provide more flexibility for LAN administrator in performing web management task, the internal MNG port that connects to the built-in Http server is disclosed for PVID configuration. The MNG port is also configured as the member port for all VLAN groups and permanently as an untag port.

802.1Q VLAN Mode

  1. This mode supports 16 VLAN groups, Group 0 ~ Group 15.
  2. When an untagged packet is received, the associated PVID setting of the input port is used to map to one VLAN group in the VLAN group table. The mapping is retrieved from the least 4 bits (bit 3~0) of the PVID value.
  3. When a tagged packet received, the VLAN ID value of the received packet is used to map to one VLAN group in VLAN group table. The mapping index from the least 4 bits (bit 3~0) of the VLAN ID value.
  4. Packet forwarding is performed only among member ports in the same group. If the input port of the received packet is not a member port of the mapped group, the packet is dropped.
  5. For outbound, Tag mode of the output port is applied as follows:

Received untagged packet output to:
Tag port: The packet is inserted with PVID of the input port as VLAN ID and new CRC.
Untag port: The packet is forwarded with no change.

Received tagged packet output to:
Tag port: The packet is forwarded with no change.
Untag port: The VID of the packet is removed and forwarded with new CRC.

Note:
When VLAN mode is set from 802.1Q mode to Port-based mode, all ports are set to Untag ports automatically.

2.5 DHCP and IP Configuration

Each switch must be designated an IP address before it can be managed from a web browser. Basically, the switches provide two methods for IP configuration:

    1. DHCP mode

      The switch requests a dynamic IP address from the first discovered DHCP server in the network when booted up. In general, the assigned IP can be monitored in the client list on the DHCP server. The model name and MAC address of the switch is referred as the DHCP client ID. If no DHCP server is discovered after a retry period for about 40 seconds, the pre-configured static IP is used automatically.

    1. Static IP mode
     

    One pre-configured IP address is used when DHCP mode is disabled or when DHCP mode is enabled and no DHCP server is available. The static IP can be configured through the management interface. Each switch comes with one identical factory default IP upon device reception.

    It is important to record the MAC address and location where it is installed for each switch. It would help in tracing the IP and device mapping.

     

    2.6 Push Button IP SW

    One push button IP SW located on the rear panel is used to disable DHCP mode and restore the static IP back to factory default value. It is useful when you do not recall your static IP setting and DHCP solution is not available.

    To make the function work, push SW and keep for at least 5 seconds when the switch is powered on to allow boot up.

     

    2.7 Making UTP Connections

    TP Port Configuration

    Use management function to set the required TP port configuration. It is recommended to set the highest ability for the TP ports as follows:

    Auto-negotiation = enabled
    Speed = 100M
    Duplex = Full

    This is appropriate to support connection to almost every Ethernet device including any which is not auto-negotiation capable.

    Cables
    Depending on the connection speed, use the appropriate UTP cables for the connections as follows:

    Speed
    Cables used
    Distance
    100M
    Cat. 5, 5e, or higher grade
    100 meters
    10M
    Cat. 3, 4, 5, 5e, or higher grade
    100 meters

    Auto-MDI-X Function

    An auto-MDI-X function will automatically detect if a crossover is required and make the swap of Tx pair and Rx pair internally. With this function, straight-through cable can be used for any connection. MDI to MDI-X connection rule is not necessary anymore. In the switches, all TP ports are equipped with this function. You can use just straight-through type of cables for all your connections.

     

    2.8 Making the Fiber Connection

    For different fiber connections, several alternative models can be selected for different fiber connections as follows:

    Model
    Connector
    Cable
    Max. Distance*
    S70553M
    ST
    MM

    Note :
    The switch is featured with flow control enabled for all ports. However, the flow control may be disabled after auto-negotiation with the connected device, if the connected device does not have flow control ability.

    Port Setup
    This page is used to set the port configuration for each port. As auto-negotiation function is enabled, speed and duplex settings specify the highest port ability for negotiation process between the switch and the auto-negotiation capable link partner. When auto-negotiation function is disabled, speed and duplex settings specify the forced port configuration for the connection. Setup options are:

    Auto-negotiation
    Enabled, disabled
    Speed
    100M = 100Mbps, 10M = 10Mbps
    Duplex
    Full = full duplex, Half = half-duplex


    It is recommended to set auto-negotiation enabled in most cases and set it disabled when connecting to an auto-negotiation incapable full duplex device.

    [Apply] Click to make the setup effective immediately.

     

    3.3 IP Setup

    This page includes the following functions:

    IP Status Display information of current IP used.

    If the current IP address is labeled (DHCP), it means the IP is assigned by

    DHCP server.

    IP Setup Set static IP address to be used when DHCP is disabled or when no DHCP server is available.

    DHCP Setup Enable to get and use dynamic IP address assigned by DHCP server. Disable to use Static IP setting.

    Any change or click [Apply] will not take effect until after next bootup.

     

    3.4 VLAN Setup

    VLAN Mode Select

    Port-based VLAN: Port-based VLAN
    802.1Q base VLAN: IEEE 802.1Q Tag-based VLAN

    Click [Apply] to make change immediately.

    Note:

    1. Both models use the same group member port settings and Port PVID settings. When selecting Port-based VLAN, all ports are set to Untag ports automatically.
    2. Under Port-based VLAN mode, all packets are forwarded transparently with no packet modification.

    3.4.1 Port-based VLAN

    Click [VLAN Mapping Table]

    This page is used to setup members for each VLAN group. Total of 16 VLAN groups are supported.

    The steps to configure the member ports are:

    1. Select Group number: 0 ~ 15.
    2. Set [Yes] on the selected port to include it into the member port list.

    Note:
    One port can belong to more than one VLAN groups. VLAN group table mapping index is based on the least four bits (bit 3 ~ bit 0) of the PVID of the input port.


    Click [Port PVID Setting]

    This page is used to setup PVID and Tag mode for each port as follows:

    PVID : The setting value is used for VLAN group lookup index. When a packet is received, the least four bits (bit 3 ~ bit 0) of the PVID setting of the input port is used as the index mapping to one VLAN group. The mapped group is used for packet forwarding operation. The valid value range is 1 ~ 4095.

    Refer to section 2.4 for more information about the MNG port.

    Tag Mode : Tag mode setting of each port is preset to Untag mode automatically and they are not changeable under Port-based VLAN mode.


    3.4.2 802.1Q VLAN

    Click [VLAN Mapping Table]

     

    This page is used to setup member ports for each VLAN group. Total of 16 VLAN groups are supported. This table is also shared by Port-based and 802.1Q VLAN modes.

    The steps to configure the member ports are:

    1. Select Group number: 0 ~ 15.
    2. Set [Yes] on the selected port to include it into the member port list.

    802.1Q VLAN group mapping is dependent on the received packet type:

    Untagged – Use the least four bits of the PVID value of the input port
    Tagged port – Use the least four bits of the PVID value of the packet

    Click [Port PVID Setting]

    This page is used to setup PVID and Tag mode for each port as follows:

    PVID : The valid value range is 1 ~ 4095. The setting value is used for the following purposes:

    1. It is used as VLAN group lookup index when an untagged packet is received. The least four bits (bit 3 ~ bit 0) of the PVID setting of the input port is used for mapping to one VLAN group.
    2. It is used to be inserted into the packet as VID when an untagged packet is received and forwarded to a Tag port.

    Tag Mode : Setting for each port to be Tag port or Untag port for outbound.

    Tag port – All output packets are tagged.
    Untag port – All output packets are untagged.
    Depending on the received packet type, the rules are applied as follows:

    Received untagged packet output to:
    Tag port: The packet is inserted with PVID of the input port as VLAN ID and new CRC.
    Untag port: The packet is forwarded with no change.

    Received tagged packet output to:
    Tag port: The packet is forwarded with no change.
    Untag port: The VID of the packet is removed and forwarded with new CRC.

    Note:

    1. When VLAN mode is switched from 802.1Q mode to Port-based mode, the Tag mode settings for all ports are preset to Untag automatically.
    2. When VLAN mode is changed, current group member ports settings and per port PVID settings are applied to new VLAN mode.
