Hi, I just got a simple, 8 port (RJ45) hub for networking, from a friend of mine. It didnt come with any manuals, beecause its used, but i have a question about hubs (in general, doesn't have to be specificly about my hub):
What is the "BNC" connector on the back of the hub used for? Can i connect a workstation to that connector, and will it work with the other RJ45 connectors?

Please answer, whoever gives me the most info, or will tell me how i can connect a workstation to the BNC connector, and make it work with the rest of the RJ45 network

The BNC connector is called an uplink port and it is used to connect multiple hubs together.  If you have more users you can get another hub with another BNC uplink port, then connect those 2 together with a piece of BNC cable, 2 t-connectors and 2 50ohm terminiators.

Does that answer your question?
