Overview 

Thanks for choosing 

LevelOne FSW-2205/2208TX 5/8Port 

10/100Mbps Internal Power SOHO Switch. It is the smallest switch 

with internal power supply around the world. The switches are 

designed to be suitable for integrating both 10BASE-T and 

100BASE-TX networking circumstance with cabling UTP (Unshielded 

Twisted-Pair) connection in Small/Medium Business (SMB) and Small 

Office/Home Office (SOHO) environment. Simple plug in the 

networking cable and the switches will automatically detect the 

maximum speed of networking connection to offer smooth network 

migrations and easy upgrades to network capacity. In addition, built-in 

power supply eliminates the hassle of power adapter allocation and 

increase users’ convenience. For easy recognition of network status 

and trouble-shooting, it provides a set of diagnostic LEDs, including 

10Mbps, 100Mbps, Link/Activity and FDX/Col.   

 

Features 

Ø 

Single chip with highest level of silicon integration for the 5/8-port 

10/100 Fast Ethernet switch device, embedded on-chip memory 

used for packet buffer and MAC address 

Ø 

Support auto-crossover (auto MDI/MDI-X) on every 10/100M 

RJ-45 port 

Ø 

Designed with internal power supply. Palm-sized, plastic case 

together with internal power design, convenient for the

HARDWARE INSTALLATION 

A.  Basic Installation 

1. 

Place LevelOne 5/8Port 10/100Mbps Internal Power SOHO 

Switch on a smooth surface. 

2. 

Connect the power cord to the LevelOne 5/8Port 10/100Mbps 

Internal Power SOHO Switch. 

3. 

Connect server, workstation or PC to your 5-port/8-port Switch 

using standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable. 

4. 

Connect another workstation or PC to your  LevelOne 5/8Port 

10/100Mbps Internal Power SOHO Switch by following the same 

process as described in Step 3. 

5. 

If necessary, another hub/switch also can be connected to any 

port of  LevelOne 5/8Port 10/100Mbps Internal Power SOHO 

Switch using standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable for more flexible 

application.   

6. 

Ensure that each device is connected properly. Plug power cord 

into the power outlet. 

 

B.  NWAY Process 

“Auto-Negotiation” (NWAY) mode automatically sets the best possible 

bandwidth when connection is established with another network 

device.   

The Auto-Negotiation priorities: 

A.   

100Base-TX Full Duplex (200Mbps) 

B.   

100Base-Tx Half Duplex (100Mbps) 

 


background image

 

C.   

10Base-T Full Duplex (20Mbps) 

D.   

10base-T Half Duplex (10Mbps) 

Each port with NWAY capability, support Half/Full Duplex function. 

 

?

Attention:   

1. 

The cable distance between the  LevelOne FSW-2205/2208TX 

5/8Port 10/100Mbps Internal Power SOHO Switch and hub/server 

should not exceed 100 meters. 

2. 

Make sure the wiring is  correct. In 10Mbps operation, Category 

3/4/5 cable can be used for connection. To reliably operate your 

network at 100Mbps, you must use Category 5 cable, or better 

Data Grade cabling.

Sample Application 

The optimal application for the  LevelOne 5/8Port 10/100Mbps Internal 

Power SOHO Switch is as a “bridge” joining 100Mbps and 10Mbps 

network segments. The following figure illustrates the application. 

 

Scenario I: 

 

 

Scenario II: 

 

Note:   

LevelOne FSW-2205/2208TX 5/8Port 10/100Mbps Internal Power 

SOHO Switch supports auto-crossover (auto MDI/MDI-X) function. 

Every port can be connected directly to another hub/switch for more 

flexible application. The user doesn’t need to use special crossover 

cable for uplink.
