I’m looking for a new power adapter for a 5-port Asanté FriendlyNet Ethernet hub (since I bought it without one). 

 

The hub states 5VDC but how many amps is the output?

 

I have tried 1A but can’t get a stable network going between my PowerBook G3 (Pismo) and Mac IIcx (MacCon+). (They sometimes show up in the Chooser).

 

The strange thing is, when I use port 5 for the Mac IIcx, next to the up-link port connected to my cbn router, I can connect to the Mac IIcx from the PowerBook, but when I try to connect from the Mac IIcx to the PowerBook the chooser crashes.

 

Help really appreciated!

 

BW,

Kristian

I don't have one of those to check, but can say that judging by the sheer size of hub adapters I've come across, you'll surely need more than a 1a adapter. You also can't have less than 5v, but you can have a bit more.

The adapter I'm using with mine is a 5V, 1A, and it works fine with a full load of connected devices.

Check for bad caps on the Friendly Net hub's circuit board. I picked up a d-link 12 port 100bps hub a few years ago and it had a bunch of bad 10 uF radial caps on board.

A bit more? I have an adaptor with +12VDC 2,333A is that too much?

You would’t happen to have a MacCon+ card connected? If so, is the port light indicator suppose to be off, except when sending?

Do you think it could have something to do with incompatible power supply or just normal wear and tear?

No, all are either Apple official cards or my AirPort Express acting as bridge to the rest of my network.
