I've just dug out my D-Link DFE-904 10/100 dual-speed hub manual. You may
find the following information useful (then again, you may not):

- All nodes must access the network at the same speed.
- Make sure that the last jack on hub A is unused.
- Plug standard cable in uplink (or MDI-II) and connect to any other jack
(but not uplink) in hub B.
- Standard jacks are cross-wired; uplink is not.

Thus, hub A must have one unused jack and hub B an unused uplink jack.
