A hub connects individual devices on an Ethernet network so that they can communicate with one another. The hub operates by gathering the signals from individual network devices, optionally amplifying the signals, and then sending them onto all other connected devices. You should use a hub or a switch on your Ethernet network if the network includes more than two clients, servers, or peripherals.

While you can connect dozens of clients, peripherals, and servers via hubs, your network performance may degrade if too many devices try to communicate within one area of the network. You can improve performance by adding switches, bridges, or routers to the network.

Each switch port, bridge port, or router port regulates traffic so that devices on the port are protected from the interfering signals of devices on other ports. Most hubs operate by examining incoming or outgoing signals for information at OSI level 1, the physical level.
