Attaching computers to the switch


Install a 10/100Mbps (10/100Base-TX) network adapter card into
every computer you want to attach to the network. Make sure you
install the Network adaptor drivers in accordance with the manufac-
turers directions.


Prepare the twisted-pair cables with RJ-45 plugs on each end. Use
Category 5/5e cable for all connections. Make sure the cable length
is less than or equal to no more than 100 meters (328 feet).


Attach one end of the cable to the RJ-45 port of the computer’s net-
work adapter card and the other end to any available port of the
NP2008 switch.

Connecting power to the switch


Locate a suitably switched 240volt AC power outlet to plug in the
supplied power pack.


Make sure that the power switch on the outlet is switched OFF before
inserting the power pack into the 240volt AC power outlet.


Insert the power pack into the power outlet.


Connect the cable attached to the power pack adapter to the power
inlet on the rear panel of the switch.


Switch on the power switch on the 240volt AC power outlet.
