Connecting Expansion Modules

The switch can operate as a standalone device with Fast Ethernet ports. You can increase the number of Fast Ethernet ports by connecting the Cisco IEM-3000-8TM or the Cisco IEM-3000-8FM expansion module. You can also install two expansion modules. Depending on the mix of switches and expansion modules, you can have up to 24 Fast Ethernet ports. For more information about the different combinations of the switch and expansion modules, see the Cisco IE 3000 Switch Hardware Installation Guide on Cisco.com.

The switch expansion modules are optional and do not ship with the switch. You need to order these separately.

Follow these steps to connect the expansion modules to the switch.

Step 1 

Remove the right side panel by firmly grasping both sides in the middle and pulling it outward. If necessary, use a flat-blade screwdriver to pry open the side panel.

Step 2 

Remove the EMI protective cover from the connector.

Step 3 

Push the upper module latches up and the lower module latches down, and then slide the switch and module together.


Note If you are installing a Cisco IEM-3000-8TM module and a Cisco IEM-3000-8FM module, install the Cisco IEM-3000-8TM first.


Step 4 

Push in the upper and lower module latches to secure the module to the switch.

Step 5 

If you are installing a second module, repeat Step 2 to Step 3, but secure the second module to the right side of the first module.

Running Express Setup

When you first set up the switch, you should use Express Setup to enter the initial IP information. Doing this enables the switch to connect to local routers and the Internet. You can then access the switch through the IP address for additional configuration.

You need this equipment to set up the switch:

A PC with Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows 2003 or XP installed.

A web browser (Internet Explorer 6.0, Internet Explorer 7.0, or Firefox 2.0) with JavaScript enabled.

A straight-through Category 5 Ethernet cable to connect your PC to the switch.

Disable any pop-up blockers or proxy settings in your browser software and any wireless client running on your PC.

To run Express Setup:

Step 1 

Make sure that nothing is connected to the switch.

During Express Setup, the switch acts as a DHCP server. If your PC has a static IP address, change your PC settings before you begin to temporarily use DHCP.

Step 2 

Connect power to the switch.

See the wiring instructions in the "Grounding the Switch" section and the "Wiring the DC Power Source" section.

Step 3 

When the switch powers on, it begins the power-on self-test (POST). During POST, the System LED blinks while a series of tests verify that the switch functions properly. Wait for the switch to complete POST, which takes approximately 1 minute.

Step 4 

Make sure that POST has completed by verifying that the System LED is solid green. If the switch has not been configured, the Setup LED blinks green. If the Setup LED stops blinking, you can still continue with the next step.

If the switch fails POST, the System LED turns red. See the "In Case of Difficulty" section if your switch fails POST.

Step 5 

Press the Express Setup button. This button is recessed behind the front panel, so you can use a simple tool, such as a paper clip.

When you press the Express Setup button, a switch port LED begins blinking green.

Step 6 

Connect a Category 5 Ethernet cable (not provided) from the blinking switch port to the Ethernet port on your PC.

The port LEDs on your PC and the switch blink green while the switch configures the connection.

Step 7 

When the Setup LED turns solid green, start a browser session on the PC.

Step 8 

The Express Setup window automatically appears. If the window does not appear, verify that any proxy settings or pop-up blockers are disabled on your browser and that any wireless client is disabled on your PC. You might also need to enter a URL in your browser, such as Cisco.com or another well-known website. If you need help, see the "In Case of Difficulty" section.


Note If the switch has been previously configured, the device manager page appears. You can use it to change the switch IP address.


Step 9 

Enter the network settings. All entries must be in English letters and Arabic numbers.

Management Interface (VLAN): We recommend using the default, VLAN 1. The management VLAN establishes an IP connection to the switch.

IP Assignment Mode: We recommend using the default, Static, which means that the switch always has the IP address that you assign. Use the DHCP setting when you want the switch to automatically obtain an IP address from a DHCP server.

IP Address: Enter the IP address for the switch. Later, you can use the IP address to access the switch through the device manager.

Subnet Mask: Select a mask from the drop-down list.

Default Gateway: Enter the IP address of the router.

Password: Enter a password. The password can be from 1 to 25 alphanumeric characters, can start with a number, is case sensitive, allows embedded spaces, but does not allow spaces at the beginning or end. In the Confirm Password field, enter the password again.

For more information about the network settings, click Help on the toolbar.

Step 10 

Enter the Optional Settings now, or enter them later by using the device manager interface:

Enter a Host Name for the switch.

Select Enable or Disable for Telnet access. If enabled, enter and confirm the Telnet password in the Password fields.

The date and time fields are populated from your PC.

Click Enable to use Daylight Saving Time.

For more information about the optional settings, click Help on the toolbar.

Step 11 

Click Submit to save the information that you entered and to finish the basic configuration. You have completed the initial switch setup. If you click Cancel, the fields are cleared, and you can start over.

Step 12 

Turn off DC power at the source, disconnect all cables to the switch, and install the switch in your network. See the "Managing the Switch" section for information about configuring and managing the switch.

Refreshing the PC IP Address

After you complete Express Setup, you should refresh the PC IP address:

For a dynamically assigned IP address, disconnect the PC from the switch, and reconnect the PC to the network. The network DHCP server assigns a new IP address to the PC.

For a statically assigned IP address, change it to the previously configured IP address.

Managing the Switch

After you complete Express Setup and install the switch in your network, use the device manager or other management options described in these sections for additional configuration:

Connecting to the Switch Ports

These sections describe how to connect to the switch ports, the SFP module ports, and the dual-purpose ports. For additional cabling information, see the Cisco IE 3000 Switch Hardware Installation Guide on Cisco.com.

Connecting to 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Ports

Installing SFP Modules and Connecting to Ports

Connecting to Dual-Purpose Ports

Connecting to 100BASE-FX Ports

Verifying Port Connectivity

Connecting to 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Ports

Follow these steps:

Step 1 

When you connect these switches to any Ethernet-enabled communication devices, insert a straight-through twisted four-pair, Category 5 cable in a switch 10/100 or 10/100/1000 port. Use a twisted four-pair, Category 5 cable when you connect to other switches, hubs, or repeaters.

Step 2 

Insert the other cable end into an RJ-45 connector on the other device.

For simplified cabling, the automatic medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature is enabled by default on the switch. With auto-MDIX enabled, the switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for connections to a switch 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, regardless of the type of device on the other end of the connection.

Installing SFP Modules and Connecting to Ports

Follow these steps:

Step 1 

Grasp the module on the sides, and insert it into the switch slot until you feel the connector snap into place.

Step 2 

Insert an appropriate cable into the module port.

Step 3 

Insert the other cable end into the other device.

For a list of supported modules, see the release notes on Cisco.com. For detailed instructions on installing, removing, and connecting to SFP modules, see the documentation that came with the SFP module.


Caution Removing and installing an SFP module can shorten its useful life. Do not remove and insert SFP modules more often than is absolutely necessary.

Connecting to Dual-Purpose Ports

Only one port on a dual-purpose port can be active at a time. If both ports are connected, the SFP module port has priority.

Follow these steps:

Step 1 

Insert either an RJ-45 connector to the 10/100/1000 port (see the "Connecting to 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Ports" section), or install an SFP module into the SFP module slot, and connect a cable to the SFP module port. (See the "Installing SFP Modules and Connecting to Ports" section.)

Step 2 

Insert the other cable end into the other device.

Connecting to 100BASE-FX Ports

Follow these steps:

Step 1 

Insert an LC cable into the 100BASE-FX port of a Cisco IEM-3000-8FM expansion module.

Step 2 

Insert the other cable end into the other device.

Verifying Port Connectivity

After you connect to the switch port and another device, the port LED turns amber while the switch establishes a link. This process takes about 30 seconds, and then the LED turns green when the switch and the target device have an established link. If the LED is off, the target device might not be turned on, there might be a cable problem, or there might be a problem with the adapter installed in the target device.
