Hub, sometimes referred to as a concentrator or repeater Hub, refers to a networkingdifference between hub and server - 2_bing.gif component which acts as a convergence point of a Network, allowing the transfer of data packets.

In its simplest form, a hub works by duplicating the data packets received via one Port, and making it available to all ports, therefore allowing data sharing between all devices connected to the hub.

A networknetworknetwork serverserverserver is a computer that provides various shared resources to workstations and other servers on a computer networknetworknetwork. The shared resources can include disk space, hardware access, and email services. Any computer can be a “networknetworknetwork serverserverserver.” What separates a serverserverserver from a workstation is not the hardware, but rather the function performed by the computer. In general, a workstation is any computer used by an individual person to perform his or her job duties, while a networknetworknetwork serverserverserver is any computer that provides users with access to shared software or hardware resources.

A (network) hub is an information distribution device. It has network ports (cheap ones for home use normally have four to eight ports, devices for professional use offer 16 or more). Network data received on any of the ports is simply forwarded to all other ports. A network hub is therefore a rather simple device that allows computers to communicate with each others or to other devices like networked printers.
More sophisticated devices analyze the network data and forward it only to ports where the data is actually needed, see "switches" and "routers".

A server is a dedicated computer or similar device of comparable complexity that can be contacted by other computers to provide some remote service. For example, a web server sends back web pages on request, a print server provides connectivity to printers, a file server remote file data storage, a database server allows access to a relational database. There are many more examples.

For example, if you enter "http://www.fixya.com" into the address line of your browser, your computer sends a request to a DNS server (usually a machine at your internet service provider's site) to resolve the symbolic name "www.fixya.com" to a numeric internet address (IP). Using this information, the web server with the symbolic name "www.fixya.com" is requested to provide you with the home page of FixYa. The home page may contain references to other web servers and your computer contacts all of them to gather all the information to finally render the web page on your browser.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.

Network Problem (occasionally loss)


Are all clients losing connections or just one? Can anyone ping the server when your client is getting 75% loss? If you are using a hub, what traffic is running during packet loss? You might need a packet trace to see what is going on. You also need to check your server stats when it is happening and when it is not and see what the difference is. Check the hub stats for errors on the ports. Is the server on the same hub with your client? These should help you find the problem if you get this info.

These are non-manageable switches, not configurable thus no IP. You should be able to plug it in to your home wiring, however, if you don?t have a server or dhcp server you will have to assign IP addresses to your computers and other network devices manually.
