Question Hub or Switch?

Hi,

I have two computers getting ADSL through a router.
One of the computers is in the room1 and I would like to use that
cable to connect additional computers to the ADSL.
What i better to use? A switch or a hub?

Hi,

Hubs take a broadcast approach - all messages go to all devices
connected to the hub. Switches route the messages only to the
devices they are addressed to. A switch uses the network more
efficiently. Hub max speed is 10Mbps, switch is 100Mbps.
Hub is half-duplex (send or receive) while switch is full-duplex
(send and receive at the same time). You decide.

If your getting a relatively small network (about 5-10 computers) and you are not using for tasks that use a lot of bandwidth, ie ont regular sharing of sizable files, not multi games, and not running programs over it get a hub, if you need an effecient network get a switch, this is best for network that are larger than about 10 computers, or ones that take high bandwidth tasks.

Hub is the best option for you. Switch is good for a bigger network

Default Adsl

Asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) is a form of DSL, a data communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than a conventional voiceband modem can provide.

And Hub has some limitation I would prefer you to say that you need to use switch rather then use hub.

Hub generally I found trouble with my previous connections and thus I always use switch..

Thanks
