Does anyone know where I can get a 100 base t HUB? Thats a hub, not switched hub, or a switch. I want to use it for packet sniffing in a 100 base t network. Thus far I can tell you that the LInksys NH1005 and the linksys EFAH05W are both SWITCHES, not hubs. I have an old d-link that is a tue hub, but its 10 base T. A model number would be appreciated.
thanks in advance

do you know the starttech model is a hub? the reason i ask is that thus far when I've seen the words "auto sensing" or 10/100 in conjunction with a hub it turns out to be a switch.

1. I did not saw the Startech is out of order.  Also in the Startech website, there is no more 10/100 hub.

Well looking at manufacturers website, if they say it is hub, it is hub or they would sale it as a switch which is more expensive.  

Altough it seems that hub work in physical layer, they can also work in Data link layer.  It is optional and therefore not supported by all manufacturer.  In a case a hub is auto sense - the right term is auto-negociate, it refers to clause 28 of the 802.3u standard which is at the MAC sublayer of the data link layer.  

Based on your need to sniff traffic, you can either use an auto sense or not hub.  This will provide you traffic from all the hosts that connect to the hub and to all the hosts that connect to the hub too.  In the case of a Switch, you would only be able to sniff traffic that goes to your PC or from your PC and the broadcasts in the same broadcast domain.

Why do you want to sniff traffic?

Yes I forgot e-bay.  Maybe because i'm deceived not to sold my parts as it were my first attempt this week.  I'm really deceived.  But as you see, if i'm not able to sell, maybe IT IS the place to buy at cheap cost!

leew : You have a lot of points!  In how many years did you made so much points?  Do you do that full time, like is it your full time job?

parkervision,
we have a couple of Nortel Baystack 60-24T Dual speed (10/100) hubs if you would like.
They really are hubs.
These are 24-port hubs, so you can hook a lot into them.
Send email to customerservice AT fitme DOT com if you are interested.
