Farallon Ether10-T Starlet/4 - What is it? How can I program it?

I found this in my cable draw (Farallon Ether10-T Starlet/4) and I am wondering - What is it? How can I program it? I remember my coworker using it as a hub/switch? back in 1996 to connect his desktop to his laptop and both to an office lan. I tried using it as a hub with mixed results (collisions) but I don't know how to get into the box via IP (it's not and I can't find anything on the web about it. I do remember something strange about twisted pair vs. something else, but all of this reminds me of the Commodore days. Anyone here remember how to use this antique? Thanks!!!! jigs in nepal ps. Can't even find the company website online?!?

Is this product safe to use with the raspberry pi? I cannot find any answers elsewhere. More specifically the product is USB 2.0 4-Hub with Power Adaptor, NEXXTECH, MODEL NO.: N4PUDH

If you haven't found your answer yet...I would expect that this hub would be fine. In general, you are better to use a powered hub with the Pi as it takes a lot of the current draw necessary away from the Pi and powers it directly from the Hub. This is especially useful if you have any high power devices plugged into the Pi's USB ports, such as external hard drives.

Hope this helps.

The fans in my Farallon 24 port switch sound like they are about to die is there a short term solution?

Try using a can of compressed air and blow air through the vent grille/holes to clear out accumulated dust. Look for more than one vent and blow air through all of them. Do NOT shake the can of compressed air before use. You can buy a can of compressed air at any office supply or computer store.

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub

sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

Network Conflict issues


So your basically connected straight to the internet,

This is your connection problem already, too many systems...

use the router as a gateway only, not for D.H.C.P.

all systems should be behind a router, especially the servers, these should be well away from the net, at least behind a firewalled router,

Promote the server to Domain Controller
install D.H.C.P. on it

If you have file servers thats ok, just connect them to the network.

( you will have to go round all PCs to change to AUTO D.H.C.P )
This is a saturday job for you when no one is working.

let the server handle D.H.C.P.
thats what it is for, exactly for your problem you have,
of a Growing LAN, yes 10-15 PCs is ok
but now 35, possible going upto 40-50, needs Automating.

Hope this helps

Printer sharing wirh USB hub

I would connect the printer to the main computer, network the 2 computers and enable printer sharing. The only draw back to this is that the main computer will have to be on in order for the other to print. Vista makes this easy to do.

Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2

Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

Farallon Ethernet 10T Starlet/4

Hubs are just distribution points, so they are pretty simple pieces of hardware.

If port 3 is lit up, with nothing plugged into it, I would say that it is probably a bad port.
Which can bother the rest of the ports (maybe, maybe not) A lit port with nothing in it can be a sign that it is probably "jabbering".
Since this is only a 10mbps hub, I don't know if I would spend too much time troubleshooting it. If it does have problems, I would just replace it. You can get a 10/100 switch which is a much better distribution point for under $30.

As for using #3 as an up-link port, I vote no. I would just plug that port off, and not use it for anything. A solid light in the middle of a bank with nothing in it is a bad sign.

Internet connection problems using the BEFW11S4

If you are having problems connecting to the Internet, follow the following steps: 1. Internet service: Check with your Internet Service Provider to make sure that service is active. You usually can determine a good link to the service if you can bypass the BEFW11S4, plug directly into the ISP modem unit, and get a good connection. This will narrow the issue down to either the service, or the router. 2. Network cables: Verify that the network cables that connect the network together are plugged into the current ports as they should (modem into the WAN/Internet port, computers into 1, 2, 3, or 4). Also try to change some or all of the network cables that attach to devices coming from the BEFW11S4. You may have bad cables. 3. Router configuration: Your router may not be configured to use your Internet service properly. While plugged into your provider?s modem and able to get online, run the bundled Router Setup Wizard CD-ROM program that came with your router. This will configure the router automatically for you. Note: this program must be executed on the main computer when plugged directly into the providers modem unit and able to get on the Internet 4. Manual configuration: If the Setup Wizard CD-ROM from Step 2 fails to configure your router, you may need a manual configuration. While plugged into the provider modem unit and able to get online, visit, and search for the name of your Internet service provider for detailed instructions on manual configurations. 5. Router firmware: Upgrade your router to the latest firmware version. Please go to to download the latest version of firmware for your product. After the upgrade, be sure to reset the router, by holding in the router?s reset button for 30 seconds and reconfiguring it for use with your service (Step 3 or Step 4). 6. Malfunctioning equipment: You may have a faulty network adapter, or a bad router. Please contact Linksys Technical Support for further assistance.
