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?

Re: 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.

Reconnect the LAN cable to the hub to verify
that the cable and network connections are good. If possible, try connecting the
machine to a different port on your hub using a different cable. If the connections
are good, the lower LED of the back panel of the machine will be green.
sends me the result.
Not necessarily! As long as a lan cable is connected on the wan port of your hub and the other end goes directly to the modem, the connection is correct. The remaining port will be left for the lan cables of the computers. No orders needed. Just make sure that lan cables was properly seated on the port. The LED blinking in the hub will tell you if its working or communicating with your computer. Find it, when the LED is not lit or blinking, the lan cable is not connected properly on the hub (or the other end of the lan cable is disconnected from the lan card of the computers).
If all cables are connected properly and still cannot connect to the network, you may need to refresh the name of the workgroup on the computers that cannot connect on the network,
How? Right click on My Computer. Select Computer Name Click Change to change the name of the workgroup that is being use by other computer. Delete the old name if the same and retype. Restart the computer and try to connect using network neighborhood.
To answer your question;
This unit puts out a 120watts rms per channel.
I don`t have the user manual but you can get the service manual HERE
It has all the specifications.
Have fun. Cheers
Is your printer wireless also or all 4 pc are just sharing the printer on 1 computer..if the printer is wireless better reconfigure it again on your network...but if the printer is shared better setup a new workgroup/network and do that to all four pc..hope this helps...ITTech7574
If your PC LAN Card is active just connect the switch with Straight cable - & --you will see one yellow box in ritht side corner down to monitor screen...where the time appears.....also you can check in the Network Connections Folder. Or Right Click My Network Places> Properties> You will see local area Network....> Connected...then it is working if disconnected it's not working....Good Luck
When the computers are powered up and connected to the D-Link hub, the computers that are connected to the hub will light up the various LEDs on the hub to indicate which port on the hub is active. Also that computer's network card Link LED light should be on to indicate it is connected to the hub. If the hub's LED is off and the corresponding computer's network card Link LED is off then the network cable is faulty, or the network card is faulty (or the network card driver needs installing) or the port on the hub and/or hub is faulty. To determine which item is faulty, swap network cables around, swap computers to different ports on the hub etc
