Your EtherFast 10/100 Autosensing Workgroup Switch

Congratulations on purchasing your new Linksys EtherFast 10/100 Autosensing Workgroup Switch for your network's 10/100 migration needs. Available in 5 and 8 Port models, the EtherFast 10/100 Switch is the easiest, most versatile way to boost your network's performance while migrating to the speed and power of Fast Ethernet. Unlike hubs that ration your network bandwidth and may slow down with high data traffic, your Linksys Switch fuels each of your computers with full duplex transfer mode on top of dedicated bandwidth to unleash your network speed.

In migrating your network to Fast Ethernet’s 100Mbps speed, your new Linksys 10/100 Switch is ready to go to work for you immediately. Apply this switching power to your 10BaseT network, and your data traffic efficiency improves several times over. Connect your file server to the Switch's autosensing ports, and speed up access time for all your users in just one move. And when you're ready, switch your way to full duplex speeds of up to 200Mbps – the speed is yours!

Every Switch packs a complete suite of advanced data error detection and correction features for surefire communication every time. Auto partitioning, data collision control, preamble regeneration and incoming frame retiming ensure that not a single bit is lost during even the heaviest moments of network traffic. Built to last, your new EtherFast 10/100 Switch delivers optimal high-end video, gaming, multimedia, database, and other speed-intensive applications at blazing speeds.

Hardware Installation

Planning Your Network Layout

Building a Fast Ethernet network involves more topology rules in addition to the 10BaseT network rules. These rules specify distance limitations and cabling specifications. Data loss, collisions, and other network problems causing down time are likely to occur if the rules below are not followed.

Use Category 5 UTP (EIA 568, Cat 5) ethernet cabling with four pairs of wires and RJ-45 tips for all Fast Ethernet connections.

Use the chart below to position your switches, hubs and workstations.



Maximum Distance


Switch or Hub*

100 meters (328 feet) 1



5 meters (16.4 feet) 1

Switch or Hub

Workstation 1

100 meters (328 feet) 1

*Hub refers to any type of 100Mbps hub, including regular hubs and stackable hubs. A 10mbps hub connected to another 10mbps hub can span up to 100 meters (328 feet).

No more than two hubs should be uplinked in a row in a Fast Ethernet network. A set of stacked hubs, which must be stacked with a stacking cable, counts as one hub or node on the network.

In Fast Ethernet networks, your 10/100 Switch acts as a repeater, regenerating data signals before passing them on to the next device. Hubs do not function as repeaters.

EtherFast 10/100 Autosensing Switches

Configuration A shows one possible way to set up an EtherFast Switch in a Fast Ethernet environment. Note that the Switch requires Category 5 UTP network cabling for all its connections, like all Fast Ethernet network hardware.

All of the workstations below can access all resources on the network - 10Mbps users can access the 100Mbps nodes, and vice versa. While allowing the 10Mbps and 100Mbps segments to communicate, the Switch optimizes data traffic by switching the data packets to their destination through the quickest route possible, which improves performance up to 80% even on the faster 100Mbps network segment.

Package Contents

Carefully remove your EtherFast 10/100 Workgroup Switch from its packaging. Make sure that you have received all of the items listed below. If any items are missing or damaged, contact your Linksys dealer for replacement part(s).

User Guide and Registration Card

Connecting Computers to Your Switch

Your Switch’s rear panel has five or eight standard RJ-45 ports, plus a shared uplink port. Each port automatically detects the speed and duplex of the attached cabling to a network card, switch, hub, etc. The ports operate in either full or half duplex, which lets you run at speeds of 200mbps, 100mbps, 20mbps or 10mbps.

Each port on your Switch can connect to workstations, file servers, hubs, repeaters, bridges, routers or other switches. Connections to the switch require Category 5 UTP network cabling with RJ-45 tips, not to exceed 100 meters (328 feet) in length. See page 10 for more details on cabling.

To connect a computer directly to the switch, plug one end of the cable into the switch, then plug the other end of the cable into the computer's network adapter.

Uplinking to Other Switches and Hubs

Switches, hubs, and similar network devices are uplinked to your Switch with straight-through Category 5 cabling. Attach the Category 5 cabling to the uplink port of the network device that you are uplinking to the Switch, and plug the other end of the cable into any standard RJ-45 port on your Switch. Using the uplink port will automatically disable the port directly next to it, since the uplink port is a shared port.

Powering On the Switch

Plug in the Switch's AC power adapter. Each time your Switch powers up, it will run a Diagnostic/Self-Test. After the test, the Power LED will light up. As connections to the Switch’s LEDs are powered on, each port's corresponding Link/Act LED will light up. The remaining LEDs will also light up according to how your data is being transferred, e.g. full or half duplex, 10mbps or 100mbps.

If the Switch experiences excessive data collisions, verify that your network cabling is securely crimped and installed properly.

Tips on Switching Your Network

Here are some of the ways your new EtherFast 10/100 Switch can help you optimize your network speed.

• Speed up Nodes From Your 10BaseT Network

In a 10BaseT network, connect your hubs, file servers and key users such as managers and network administrators directly to your Switch to channel dedicated bandwidth in full duplex mode to each station. The Switch can communicate with all its connections simultaneously, whereas a hub can only communicate with one workstation at a time, in half duplex transfer mode.

• Conserving Bandwidth with 10Mbps & 100Mbps Segments

10BaseT and 100BaseTX hardware are not readily compatible, but your 10/100 Switch can designate network segments of different speeds. This allows you to run one 10mbps segment to serve users without a need for considerable speed, and a faster 100mbps segment devoted to users who depend heavily on graphics, multimedia, database, or other speed-intensive applications. With switched segmentation, your 100mbps users will not be slowed down by the users on the 10mbps segment.

• Run 10Mbps Peripherals in Your Fast Ethernet Network

Most of the network peripherals in place today run at 10mbps, since 10BaseT has been the standard network speed to date. These peripherals, designed to operate at 10mbps, cannot readily communicate with 100BaseTX equipment. A 10mbps interface is also required for cable and DSL connections, which are quickly becoming very popular ways to access the Internet. Your 10/100 Switch provides your 10BaseT equipment and cable and DSL lines with a 10Mbps interface while still running your Fast Ethernet devices at 100mbps.

• Strengthen Data Transfers Through Signal Regeneration

Your Switch functions as a repeater, which regenerates data signals as they pass through it. This feature acts as a safeguard to deter data loss and ensure that transmissions arrive at their destination intact. Switches positioned between hubs can preserve your data’s integrity and eliminate your need to buy and use repeaters in your Fast Ethernet network.
