Question: "We have an office with 4 computers all sharing Internet through a Belkin 4 port router connected to a Westell DSL modem (1.2Mbps download). All the computers work well. We are looking to add 2 more computers that will share Internet access also. A few folks told me to buy a hub and connect it to the router. Others told me get a switch and add that to the router. I am very confused. What is the difference between a hub and a switch? What do I need to expand to 2 more computers that will share my DSL?" Read the Answer
