Is it possible to Uplink 100-10base HUB?

By jtpaderes ·
Is it possible to Uplink from a 100baseT going to a 10baseT HUB? What will be the cable color construction on both ends. Thank you very much in advance.

won't this slow you down to 10BT, why would you want to do that ?

Just to distribute internet connection to other units running on a 10baseT. I observed that the indicator (10baseT HUB)during the uplink port is abnormally blinking and no sign or connection to the 100baseT. I already concluded that this is not possible, but STILL hopin' for the other way around.

Cable color? Same cable as any other ethernet cable, unless you do not have an uplink port on the hub. Just plug another ethernet cable into the uplink port of the hub, or maybe you don't even need an upliknk port, just plug into port one.

BTW, 100bt and 10bt use the same number of wires (4). Used to be that you needed to cross-connect hubs, but from a switch you should not need to cross-connect.

Only if the 100bT is 10/100. As far as the color code for the cable goes, use a straight through cable if the hub has an uplink port usually the last port on one hub to any port on the next.

What type of switches do you have. If they are configurable you should be able to set the speed on the 100mb switch to 10mb. Assuming that it is not an autosensing switch. Additionally you'll need a crossover cable pins map 1-3 2-6. Or an uplink port on one of the switches.
Happy Switching
