Everyone has always said HUBs are bad and send information to ALL devices
I have an employee that needs another PC setup next to them ASAP and I do not have time to run another 100' CAT6 cable from the switch to this PC, therefore I just setup a small $10 cheap hub as follows
1. patch cord from SWITCH to HUB
2. patch cord from HUB to PC #1
3. patch cord from HUB to PC #2
Which one of the below options will happens since a HUB is now in the mix when PC #2 updates a file on the Windows 2012 R2 file server since I did not wire back to the Cisco switch ?
** Option #1 = PC #2 sends info to ALL 100+ devices on my network, with only the file server accepting the data
** Option #2 = PC #2 sends info to ALL devices that are plugged into the hub (i.e. only PC #1 and the switch), with only the file server accepting the data
** Option #3 = something else ?
