This is the fourth in our Ethernet series.
A "Hub" can expand the number of available Ethernet connectors in your low-cost local-area network so that you can interconnect more computers, printers, etc. As you bring additional computers or printers into your small office, home, or dorm-room network, you will need a hub or switch as soon as the number of networked items exceeds the available number or Ethernet connectors. Ethernet hubs are rather like an electrical "multiple outlet strip" of the type commonly used to expand the number of available electrical outlets in a room: they are completely mindless, and the same electrical signals are always available from all of their individual connectors. Using simple analogies, diagrams, photographs, and audio narration, this 5-minute movie explains how and when to purchase and install an Ethernet hub.
This movie continues building an excellent foundation and
introduction for anybody that wants to know how their Local Area Network
works, and for people studying to learn the most basic concepts needed
to pass any of these certification exams:
