Home Networking Help

by Barbara J. Feldman on December 17, 2003

Are you installing a home network this holiday season? Here are three key definitions to get you started. A hub is a simple, unintelligent device that sends incoming signals out to ports. A switch is more selective, and only sends incoming traffic to specific ports. A router is the most intelligent, and can be programmed to route signals in very specific ways. For more home networking help see Home PC Network (
