Leo I have one question...
How we can Make our own routers for Project in College.. is it more typical.??
I am last year computer science graduate...
1)Hub:-The job of a hub simply is:anything that comes in one port is sent out to the others.
2)Switch:-Pay attention to the traffic that comes across it,ex:sees traffic from mashine A coming in on port 2,it knows now knows that mashie A is connected to that port and that traffic to mashine A needs to only be sent to that port and not to any of the others.
3)Router:-Think of it like a computer that can be programmed to understand,possibly manipulate,and route the dataits being asked to handle
To post a comment on "What's the difference between a hub, a switch, and a router?", please return
