Hub, Switched Hub, Switch..
Posted on 2001-08-15
I haven't found much information to answer this question, so I thought I'd give it a shot here:
What is, if any, the difference between a _switched hub_ and a _switch_? I've heard and seen a number of suggestions, for example that a switched hub can switch between its segments, that it's just like a switch, that it's just like a switch but that you have to edit the MAC lookuptable yourself (it's static), that it can exchange traffic between 10/100 along its segments, and what not..
So, can someone please shed some light here? I would be really grateful.
I set this as a 150p question, hoping for a quality answer =)
