That shouldn't cause any problem, other than increasing the number of collisions on the segment of the domain that is on the hub, which slows down the network for those computers (especially if they are both being used at once). -DJ Craig

How do you Connect a hub to a hub?

Usually by connecting the uplink port of the first hub to a normal port of the second hub using a straight-thru RJ45 cable. If a crossover RJ45 cable is used to connect them, then the ports at both ends must be the same kind of port (either uplink ports, either normal ports).


Which is more efficient for networking traffic a switch or a hub Why?

A switch. Each port has a separate path to each of the other ports on the switch. On a hub, all the ports are tied together into 1 single port. Think of a switch as an 4 lane freeway with 8 entrances and exits; a hub is a one lane highway with the same 8 entrances and exits. It can pass data from only one port to another port- switch can connect 4 ports to the other 4 ports (or 8 to 8 or 16 to 16, you get the idea) A switch is quite a bit more complicated AND is generally more expensive: between 20% and 300% more than a hub with the same number of ports BUT it's very useful on a busy network (business especially.)


How switch faster as compare to hub?

Most of the time, a switch will send information only to the destination, while a hub will send to all of its ports. That makes the hub inefficient - in a hub, only one computer can transmit at a time.Most of the time, a switch will send information only to the destination, while a hub will send to all of its ports.

How to connect one computer to two printers by USB cables?

To connect one computer to two printers by USB cables would require the use of a USB Hub. It may be wise to purchase a Hub with 6 or more ports. The Hub will have a port marked 'in', which will have to be connected to your computer. You can then connect the printers to any of the other ports on the Hub, ensuring that the respective printer drivers are installed on your computer. The USB Hub will also allow for the connection of your scanner and digital cameras etc.


What do you need to network three computers?

A suitable hub, switch or router, CAT5 or CAT6 cabling terminated with RJ45 plugs (non-crossover) and three computers. If one computer has two Ethernet ports, you don't need a hub, switch or router as the the other two computers can connect directly to it by bridging the ports and using crossover cabling. If you also require Internet access, you will need a suitable hub, switch or router. Most ISPs will provide one free of charge. Wireless options are also available.
