A hub or switch must be used to connect 3 PCs together. Two PCs can be connected using a single crossover cable.
A hub is not required to connect three PCs and two PCs together. A switch is commonly used to allow multiple computers to communicate together.
Yes you acn use a hub to connect your computers. Just connect a cat5 network cable from each of your computers to the hub. It doesn't matter which port you plug the cat5 cable into on the hub. they are all the same. Also, if you might be interested in making your own cat5 cables. I have added a link on how to do ths.
You can connect them both. It is better to use a "switch" instead of a hub, but the hub will work, too.
You should use a hub. Sometimes you can daisy chain, but you can get unpredictable results.
A Crossover Cable is used to connect 2 PCs (when a hub or switch is not used) to make the simplest network of all. (6th Edition, Page 852)
Yes and no. If you want to just directly connect the two pc's together a cross-over Ethernet cable can do this. Cross-over cables are used to connect 2 like devices. Doing this will most likely require you to disconnect from the internet, unless your computer has 2 NIC's (ethernet ports) If you want to connect both computers together AND still have internet access a hub, or switch, or router is needed. Thus creating your own LAN
A switch or hub is used to connect multiple devices to a modem. Hubs have largely fallen out of use due to their bandwidth-sharing properties that make them undesirable in high-speed local networks.
If you have an ADSL modem, you connect the ADSL modem to the hub, and you connect cables from the hub to each computer. If you have only a single computer, you need no hub.If instead you want to use a WiFi (wireless) connection, you also need an access point for the wireless connection.
The "Crossover" port. (or MDI-X)
You would need to use a PC to connect to the internet with the modem. Then use a network card to connect to a hub. Use the hub to connect to your Playstation. Then setup the PC as a proxy server.
forget that and use a HUB/Switch or wireless router
As long as the Mac in question has a wireless adapter, it should connect.
A straight through cable is used.
Either use a crossover cable or connect them using a hub, switch, or router.
You could use:SwitchHubRouter
The "uplink" port. If it doesn't have one, you will have to use a crossover cable.
A hub is 10 year old hardware technology used to connect more that one computer together (people use switches now, switches auto detect speeds). You usually use a router to connect to the internet
I have a PC, laptop and xbox running and i have a modem and router downstairs with a wire leading upstairs then a netgear high speed hub splitting my connection 3 ways to my PC etc , but i don't think u need a hub if your router has multiple ethernet slots.
You can use a standard wireless router that contains 4 ports to connect 4 computers via wire, and the rest wirelessly. Or, you can connect all of them wirelessly. If you must connect all of them by wire, you can use a 16 port router. Most routers have either 4, 8, or 16 ports.
A router or possibly a data switch can connect two PC's to a DSL or cable modem.
Every business must use social media to connect with consumers.
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.
