Ethernet Adapters (3)

LKG-6100 features Wake-on-Lan but having trouble finding the pins to connect it to the WOL connector on motherboard.

The LKG-6100 is a new model and does not use the cable for Wake-on-Lan. The wake-on-lan function is going thru the PCI bus.

For your gigabit network card LKG-6100, does it auto-detect 1000mbps?

The LKG-6100 Gigabit network card has auto-detection on the speed. You can force it to connect to a specific speed by changing the settings. If you let the card to detect it, it will try to get the highest speed possible.

To utilize the full speed of the gigabit network adapter, you need
to have gigabit connections (Switch or Router).

What is the maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between computers and other devices such as hubs, switches, other computers, etc.?

The maximum length of Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable that can be used between computers and other devices on a network is 100 meters or about 328 feet. Keep in mind that this is a theoretical limit. Usually, you will want to keep the distance between devices well below the limit.

Ethernet Switches (2)

What is a Ethernet Switch?

A switch connects all computer LAN connections into one device like a hub. Unlike hubs, switches can run at full-duplex mode. This means that the computer and switch can both transmit and receive simultaneously. The biggest difference between a switch and a hub is that when a computer transmits a digital signal to a hub, it’s then sent to all ports attached to that hub, whereas a switch will send it only to the specific port where the destination MAC address is located.

KVM Switches (19)

How do I switch from one system to another with the KVM?

KVM’s generally have two ways to switch from one system to another: by pressing a button on the KVM or using a hotkey. Hotkeys for some KVMs are preset, and are listed with the KVM documentation while others can be custom set in some manner. High end KVMs may even have an OSD (on screen display) that you can bring up via hotkey when you can select the system via an on-screen menu.

Can I purchase a longer integrated (video/keyboard/mouse) cable for LKV-S02SK and LKV-S04SK because my computers are farther than those 4/6ft cables come in the box?

Yes, we have 6ft, 10ft and 15ft integrated KVM cables. Part# C-KVM-SC6, C-KVM-SC10, C-KVM-SC15. Another option is to add extension cables to each features (video, keyboard and mouse) on your PC side. You can extend the PC end with regular VGA cable and two PS/2 extension cables.

You can not add VGA extension cable on KVM side because most VGA cable does not have all 15 pins connected. It is important to point out that video cable not to exceed 15ft for good imaging.

My computer systems do not support dual monitors from their video cards, Will they still work with your Dual monitor KVM switch?

No, our KVM switch does not add any extra features to your system if your systems do not already have.

Can I mix DVI and VGA video sytems with your LDV-212ASK?

For the LCD monitor with separated DVI and VGA connectors, kvm users with mixing of one DVI and one VGA video systems must use C-DVY-06 monitor Y cable to combine the two connectors from the monitor and connect to the kvm switch console DVI port.

For the LCD monitor with DVI-I connector only, kvm users can mix DVI and VGA video systems w/o purchasing additional cable.

For the LCD monitor with DVI-D connector only, kvm users can only use DVI video systems.

Will I have to install any software on my computers to use KVM?

No. KVM Switches are a hardware-only solution to server management. They are designed to not intrude on server performance thus are plug and play.

Routers (5)

I have LKR-604 router set up at home. How can I access to my home network remotely?

The firewall is blocking all the incoming access by default. If you are trying to access something behind the router through the internet, you need to setup the virtual server to enable the access.

You can do that by going into the router’s configuration page.
1. Go to Advanced Setup | NAT | Virtual Server.
2. Add the IP of the system that you want access and the port #.
3. Click “Apply” to save settings.

I have LKR-604 router and believe WAN port might be bad. How to trouble shoot WAN port?

You can test the wan port connection by making wan port connect to port 4 and have one of your system connect to port 1. Setup the router to use Dynamic IP for wan port, and then check the status page of the router’s configuration. If the wan port gets IP from the router, the wan port is good. Also try to ping the wan port IP address. If can’t ping, the wan port may be bad.

Can I change the IP address on my router LKR-604?

Yes, you can change the LAN IP at the router configuration webpage. Go to Advance Setup and modify the LAN IP address and save settings. Please check the package manual P.21 for details on Advance Setup.

How to reset LKR-604 to factory default settings?

Use a pin-shape item to push the reset button for 3 seconds on rear panel of the router. You can reset to factory settings while all data and power cables connected to the router.

I can’t link my cable modem to the LKR-604 router. Our network end works fine but can’t go online.

Please try the steps shown below. The sequence is very important.

1. Power off the cable modem, router and computer.
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the cable modem.
3. Unplug the power cord from the router.
4. Wait 30 seconds then reconnect the power to the cable modem
5. Wait 2 minutes to allow the modem to connect. The modem connection lights will be solid.
6. Reconnect the power to the router
7. Wait 2 minutes to allow the router to connect.
