Four- and Eight-Port Hubs The Ether10-T Starlet hubs are unmanaged 10Base-T Ethernet hubs that connect Ethernet devices in a reliable star network. The multiple hubs can be connected to expand a network, using the additional BNC (thinnet) port on all models, and the AUI port the Starlet/8. Moreover, networking management is easy with `at-a-glance' diagnostic LEDs. The low-cost Ether10-T Starlet hubs are available in four-, eight- and 16-port models. They feature management LEDs, flexible uplink ports, and wall or rack mounting options, making the hubs an excellent choice for small and medium-sized networks. In addition, customers can expand their Starlet hubs by using Farallon's patented EtherWave family of 10Base-T network interface cards, transceivers and adapters to daisy-chain up to seven devices off of each available hub port. For example, EtherWave and a four-port 10Base-T hub will support a network of up to 28 computers and printers.
