Hi,
I just have a simple question, do hubs have MAC addresses? As I remember, they don't and it's been awhile since I took my courses and I just want to be sure.

Thanks.

It depends on whether or not they are active or passive hubs. Active hubs will have a mac and some of them you can even put an IP and a host name as well. Passive hubs don't do anything but create a physical connection for cables and they don't have a mac address.
