Instruction Manual Farallon/Starlet/5 5 Port/10Mb Ethernet Hub

I have a Farallon/Starlet/5 5 Port/10Mb Ethernet Hub which I never used. I now want to connect two of my computers to the unit so I can use/backup the files on both computers at the same time. I can not find the instructions for the unit. I am puzzled how to go about connecting my computers to the unit. I connected the lan network cords to the Hub but the computers did not speak to one another. There is a part, one end has a 14 pin push in connection (not pins) at one end and a plug in lan cord at the other end. Not sure how to use this device and this device is not even shown on the box enclosure. Do you by any chance have the instructions manual for this device? If not, do you know where I might search for the instructions. The unit is new but old because it was hidden away and I just found it in unpacking items I move with me to my new home in Florida. Greatly appreciate any help you can provide. I tried "" but site could not be found. Under my search, your Company name popped up. Please respond to

I am trying to set up a switch between my PS3 and my PC. I have an external DSL modem. I purchased a 5 port switch(Rosewill RC405-x) but no luck. Can I use an ethernet splitter instead?

You did not explainhaow you connected all your equipment together.
Connect your PC and PS3 into the 5 port switch.
Connect your DSL modem into the 5 port switch, if there is a WAN/internet port on the 5 port switch then connect the DSL model into this port.
You may need to power off the 5 port switch wait a 1 min and power up the 5 port switch again so it can setup an IP address table for the connected ports.
If this still does not work the replace the 5 port switch with a normal 5 port hub.

Got a hub genius GH4080SE and trying to connect computers, pls advise what is the steps?

Hardware Setup

1 Find the WAN or uplink port of the Ethernet hub. Typically, it is located on the rear of the unit, and it is often separate from the LAN ports.

2 Connect an Ethernet cable from the WAN port of the hub to either the Ethernet port of the internet modem or, if expanding a network, to an empty LAN port on the existing network’s router, switch or hub.

3 Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the LAN ports on the Ethernet hub and connect the other end of cable to the computer or device that will be added to the network. Repeat for any other devices that will need to be on the network.

4 Power up the Ethernet hub and the computers or other devices attached to it. On the front of the hub will be a series of LEDs that correspond to each LAN and WAN port on the hub. Every port that has a cable plugged into it should have one or more of the LEDs lit that represent that port. If not, check the connections and swap out the Ethernet cable if necessary.
Software Setup

1 Configure the network settings on each connected computer. If you are expanding a network and the network uses DCHP, or dynamic IP addressing, no configuration will be necessary. On networks using static IP addressing or on a new network setup using the Ethernet hub, each computer or device must be assigned a unique IP address. Local IP addresses must use the allowed “private” address pools that will not interfere with internet addresses. Acceptable addresses include 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x to 172.31.x.x, or 10.x.x.x. The “x” represents a number that is chosen by the user, from 0 to 254. All computers on the network should share the first three numbers in the address, with the final number representing the individual computer. In a network with three computers, for example, the first could be, the second could be and the third could be, though the final number does not need to be sequential.

2 Click the “Start” button in Windows, select “Control Panel" and double-click the icon labeled “Network Connections.”

3 Right-click the icon for the Ethernet adapter and select “Properties.” Click on the check box marked “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and press the “Properties” button.

4 Select the radio button labeled “Use the following IP address.” Enter a unique IP address for the computer and the applicable subnet mask. If a router is used on the network, enter the router’s IP address as the default gateway. Press the “OK” button and reboot if necessary.

5 Enable file and printer sharing from the “Properties” dialog for the Ethernet card if files will be transferred between the networked computers.

6 Click the “Start” button, select “Control Panel” and double-click on the “System” icon. Select the “Computer Name” tab and click on the button labeled “Change” to set the computer’s network name. In the “Computer Name” box, enter a unique name for the computer. In the “Member of” section, choose the radio button marked “Workgroup” and enter the workgroup of the network. If setting up a new network, this name can be change but all computers on the network must share the same workgroup name.

7 Verify that all computers can access the network and the Internet if connected.

5 port network hub

Connect the power supply.
connect the ethernet cable from your router (or the box that your isp gave you to get the internet connection) to the port labeled "Uplink" on the hub.
Connect the ethernet cable from your computer or another device to be connected to any of the ports 1 to 4. Do not use port 5 (that port is used to "chain" another hub)
Please be aware that a network hub is basically a very simple device that will not assign an internal ip number to your devices or computer, and if you have two or more devices or computers, you do need that either your "modem" (the device that is installed by your isp) is capable of handling more than one computer, or you will also need something to act as a router (your computer can do it, but you will need to know how to set up that).
Hope it helps

How do you hook up a Dynex Ethernet Hub

If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.

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.

plug the cable to one of the ports on the hub which I'm sure you tried... if not, there should be a port marked with an "X" which means it's a cross over port which might do the trick. Just make sure the port next to that port is free (not plugged to anything).

Do you get any lights when you plug an ethernet cable between the router and the hub?
