Switches are smarter than hubs.
Lets say you have a switch with 16 ports, your computer is connected to port 2 and you are browsing the internet. You make a page request and when the reply comes back it hits the switch and the switch forwards the information to port 2.
This does not happen with a hub, the hub does not know you are on port 2, it sends the information to every port, in this case all 16 ports. In a low traffic environment a hub can be ok but it can cause a lot of unnecessary traffic on your network and slow it down.
If you have a choice pick a switch over a hub, there is not that much of a price difference these days.

Comment configurer routeur acer HUB 508d


Hubs are just multi-port repeaters. Plug devices into the hub and your done. You will only get half-duplex speeds though out of a hub and lots of extra network traffic. You'd be much better off using a switch.

Can i connect a hub to switch which is already have many other connection and also can i connect two or more than 2 systems with that hub


Yes, you can connect a hub to a switch with as many devices as the hub has ports for. You will have a bottleneck at the port the hub links to the switch but if the demands are low then you probably won't notice any significant degradation of speed. Move your printers on to the hub ports to free up switch ports for PCs, servers and router connection.

HOW TO CONNECT IT TI A COMPUTER?


When the computers are powered up and connected to the D-Link hub,
the computers that are connected to the hub will light up the various LEDs on the hub to indicate which port on the hub is active. Also that computer's network card Link LED light should be on to indicate it is connected to the hub.
If the hub's LED is off and the corresponding computer's network card Link LED is off then the network cable is faulty, or the network card is faulty (or the network card driver needs installing) or the port on the hub and/or hub is faulty.
To determine which item is faulty, swap network cables around, swap computers to different ports on the hub etc
