General Information

Introduction

Intended Audience: This manual assumes that the user has a general working knowledge of networking principles and architecture and is familiar with network systems in general.

Congratulations on the purchase of your Kingston EtheRx WorkGroup (WG) series and Stackable-Enhanced (SE) series 10BASE-T Ethernet hubs. There are two models for each series: KNE8TP/WG and KNE16TP/WG, 8 and 16-Port

WorkGroup hubs, and KNE8TP/SE and KNE16TP/SE, 8 and 16-Port

Stackable hubs. The SE hubs have the same list of features as the WorkGroup hubs, but also include stacking ports located on the front panel to stack up to five (5) SE hubs in the same network segment. The EtheRx WG and SE hubs are multi-port repeaters that conform to IEEE 802.3 10Mbit/sec CSMA/CD

(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection) Network.

The EtheRx WG and SE hubs support eight (8) or sixteen (16) UTP

(Unshielded Twisted-Pair) ports for 10BASE-T network connections, and one

BNC port for 10BASE2 thin Ethernet connection. The 16-Port models also include one AUI (Attachment Unit Interface) port for either 10BASE2

Cheapernet, 10BASE5 thick Ethernet connection, 10BASE-T or FOIRL (Fiber

Optic Inter Repeater
