how to configure a netwoking router
Excellent explanation of these three terminology.Everyone will understand this.
i have read the comments and am sugesting that mr. Leo is doing his best . The main reson that you can use a hub is when you have unsecured network
I really loved the way you've explained the terms.. Thanks..
I have a broadband router for my network. For your article it would be good to note whether adding a switch for additional network devices is sufficient, or whether the intellegence of an additional router is an advantage. (I'll check your "Related" link.) Thanks.
good explanation im doing IT in school and you made things a lot easier for me,thanks
PLEASE, IN NETWORK INSTALLATION WHICH OF THESE EQUIPMENTS ARE INSTALL FIRST, SWITCH OR ROUTER. PLEASE EXPLAIN.
I have a token ring of 11 workstations, and a IBM AS400e server in my shop. I took a lightning hit damaging my hub, and now I cannot get all workstations up, with a new HUB, and I even tried a switch. I have 4 stations working, by running them through a temporary connection out of the server, via parralel plug, into a junction connector, then to the "host" port of the hub. I then run each cat 5 cable out of the few working ports. Any ideas why a new hub would not work?
Thanks for the help, work with computers all the time just didnt know the difference between a switch and hub, very nice and simple.
thanks for helping me about my problem
