Question about Farallon Starlet Networking Hub
I have this old hub that I want to use to network some printers. I don't have a manual for this unit. I am just wondering why the LED for channel 3 is highlighted on the faceplate, while the others are not. Should I use this channel as the uplink?
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.
