Hey all, I was wondering if someone could explain to me the difference between using a hub and a switch? The problem I am facing is that I only have one ethernet port in my dormroom that is active, but I have 3 things to plug in (desktop, laptop, xbox360). Wireless works to some extent, but gives me very low performance, so I'd much rather have them all just plugged into ethernet ports for faster connections. I am not allowed to use a router (school rules..) so i was trying to find an alternative? From looking at hubs and switches, it looks like one of those could be what im looking for... but im really not sure. I don;t know too much about networking.. I'm hoping that a switch could be used (theyre cheaper ^.^). Any help, or suggestions would be great! Thanks!
