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 192.168.1.1, the second could be 192.168.1.2 and the third could be 192.168.1.3, 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.

Fuji p205 and Bixolon SRP350 not working together


Just a guess but any of this gear get powered from the hub rather than use it's own PSU? You may want to make sure your hub has it's own PSU powering it. Alternatively try plugging one of the USBs directly into the computer.

Verify that they are connected to the PC. Make sure the hub is plugged into a working USB port on the computer. If they are connected, replace the batteries. If this does not work, unplug and plug the hub back into the PC. You can also try unplugging the hub then shutting the computer down and restarting it. Then plug the hub back in.

My printer wont turn on


Dear Sir,

If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
  1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
  4. Reset the computer's PMU, SMC, or PRAM. Refer to the instructions for your model:
  5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord.
  6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
  7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to the nearest Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail store, make a reservation at the Genius Bar using

You can't just replace the bearings. You've got to replace the entire wheel hub (thank you genius engineers at Chevy). My driver side front wheel was rubbing the frame and the hub cost around $350 plus $150 labor.

Genius LAN 16 Port Hub Dropping connections intermittently


Col probably means Collisions. There are probably collisions going on on your LAN. Collisions can happen when there are two adapters with the same IP address or when there's a bad cable. My suggestion is that you make sure that you have unique IP addresses and that you don't have any bad cables - cable tester comes in handy.

Try the follwoing steps, i m sure that it will start working bcoz i tried the same steps and my printer started working:

  1. Turn the power to the computer off.
  2. Press the power button to turn off the product.
  3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Restart the computer.
  5. Press the power button to turn the product back on.
  6. When the computer restarts, try the scan again.
  • If the issue is not resolved , try some other troubleshooting:
  • Connect USB cable directly to the computer and then restart the product and try to scan again
  • If the product still does not work , try some other steps:
  • Connect the USB cable to a USB hub or a docking station for a laptop. 1. Restart the computer and the product and try to scan again.
  • If the product doesnot works after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps:
      1. Reconnect the USB cable.
      2. Try the scan again.
        • If the product worked when the USB cable was connected directly to the computer, but does not work after reconnecting the USB cable in the original configuration, there might be a problem with the hub or docking station. Either leave the USB cable connected directly to the computer, or contact the manufacturer of the hub or docking station for troubleshooting.
      If the product does not work after connecting the USB cable directly to the computer , follow these steps.
      1. Replace the USB cable.
      2. Try the scan again.
        • If the product does not work with the new cable, continue to the next solution.
    Now, if this doesnot work, there is a conflicting USB device connected to the computer
    1. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer except for the keyboard, the mouse, and the product.
    2. Try the scan again.
      • The issue would be resolved now and teh answer is that the computer might not have sufficient power supplied to the USB ports to detect multiple USB devices. HP recommends installing a USB powered hub to connect multiple USB devices.

Trying to get my Marshall to work for first time!


Hi! you are trying to bite off a bit more than can be chewed at once.

you need to troubleshoot backwards
Step1:- check normal playback. Sometimes the speakers (headphones)are not properly connected or the sound card needs to be ascertained. Just playback anything and eliminate this stage as a potential problem

Step2: We have now ascertained that the playback is not an issue,Now we need to check the USB hub - Computer connectivity. Try to connect someother USB device like a pen drive ascertain that this section is working. If it isnt go to strat - settings -control panel- Administrative services- computer management - Device management - and configure the USB Hub

Step 3: Having ascertained that the USB Hub is indeed wiorking connect MBox to the USB hub and load driver software open page, start- settings-control panel - Administrative services - computer management - device managment and check thet the driver is installed and working properly.

Thats it it should work fine if the above steps have been completed.
