Due to specific product configuration, this hub is required. And now I need to capture the data from a 10Base2 LAN connecting to a 10BaseT LAN. Any thoughts?

hello paul,

any specific reason why you want to use the thin coax port but use one
of the normal ports?

the description of these hubs is rather funny:

Product Description
The Ethernet 8-Port Workgroup Hub is just the ticket for transforming
your computers into a high performance workgroup. Imagine sharing
files, printers, multimedia, and more at speeds of up to 10 million
bits per second! Seven 10BaseT ports and one thin coax port make the
installation easy--just connect a cable from each computer to the hub
and go! Built-in error detection automatically protects the integrity
of your data.11 "smart" LEDs instantly reveal your network's line
status, data traffic levels, and link states, making troubleshooting
easier than ever. Built for rapid expansion, the Workgroup Hub
includes both 10BaseT and thin coax uplink ports, allowing you to
connect multiple hubs together for virtually unlimited growth.

good luck,
