1. Introduction 

 

Thank you for purchasing LevelOne FSW-2106. The 5-port 10/100 TX + 

1-port SC 100FX switch is a compact desktop size switch which is an ideal 

solution for small office or SOHO network user. It provides wire-speed, 

Fast Ethernet switching function that allows high-performance, low-cost 

connection. 

         

FSW-2106 provides 5 switched N-Way 10/100Mbps RJ-45 Ethernet ports 

with Auto MDI/MDI-X function and one SC 100Base-FX fiber port. The 

multi-mode fiber port can be used to connect to a remote side and 

supports distance up to 2 KM. 

 

The switch will automatically detect the speed of the device that you plug 

into it to allow you to use both 10 and 100Mpbs devices. The 10Mbps 

bandwidth will accommodate 10Mbps workgroup hubs while 

simultaneously providing the 100Mbps bandwidth needed to 

accommodate multimedia applications. The switch features a 

store-and-forward switching and it can auto-learn and store source 

address on a 2K-entry MAC address table.

RJ-45 Ports:

 Five 10/100 N-Way auto-sensing for 10Base-T or 

100Baes-TX connections. 

 

 

100Base-FX Fiber Port:

 One SC 100Base-FX fiber port. The 

distance for fiber cabling can be extended up to 2 kilometers.

 

 

 

DIP-switch:

 the DIP-switch is to select switch’s function.

3. Network Application 

 

This section provides you a few samples of network topology in which the 

switch is used. In general, the switch is designed to be as a desktop or 

segment switch. 

 

The switch automatically learns node address, which are subsequently 

used to filter and forward all traffic based on the destination address. 

 

 

Desktop Application   

 

The switch is designed to be a compact desktop size switch that is an 

ideal solution for small workgroup. The switch can be used as a 

standalone switch to which personal computers, server, printer server are 

directed connect to form small workgroup.   

 

Desktop Application

Collapsed Backbone Application   

 

 

You can use any port of the switch to connect with another hub or switch 

to interconnect each of your small-switched workgroups to form a larger 

switched network. Meanwhile, you can also use fiber ports to connect 

switches. The distance between two switches via fiber cable can be up to 

2Kms.  

 

The switch support Auto MDI/MDI-X function, the function can auto 

detects the cable is straight or crossover cable. That is to say, you can 

connect another hub or switch without crossover table.     

 

 

Figure 3-2. Collapsed Backbone Application 

 

In the above illustration, two switches are used to interconnect two small 

workgroup via fiber cable. All the devices in this network can communicate 

with each other. Connecting servers to the switch allow other users to 

access the server’s data.

4. Troubleshooting

 

 

The switch can be easily monitored through panel indicators to assist in 

identifying problems. This section describes common problems you may 

encounter and where you can find possible solutions. 

 

 

Diagnosing LED Indicator 

If “LINK/ACT” indicator does not light up after connection, you may check 

whether network interface (e.g., a network adapter card on the attached 

device), network cable, or switch port is defective or not. Verify that the 

switch and attached device are power on. Be sure the cable is plugged 

into both the switch and corresponding device. Verified the proper cable 

type is used and its length does not exceed specified limits. 

 

 

Power 

IF “Power” indicator does not light up when the power cord is plugged in, 

you may have a problem with power outlet, or power cord. However, if the 

switch powers off after running for a while, you should check for loose 

power connections, power losses or surges at power outlet. IF you still 

cannot resolve the problem, contact your local dealer for assistance. 

 

 

Cabling 

A

 

RJ-45 ports:  

Use unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or shield 

twisted-pair (STP) cable for RJ-45 connections: 100

Ω

 Category3,4 

or 5 cable for 10Mbps connections or 100

Ω

 Category 5 cable for 

100Mbps connections. Also be sure that the length of any twisted-pair 

connection does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet). 

 

B

 

100Base-FX fiber port:   

Fiber multi-mode connector type must use 

62.5/125 um multi-mode fiber cables. You can connect two devices 

over a 2-kilometer distance.
