  1. Although hubs and switches both glue the PCs in a network together,
    a switch is more expensive and a network built with switches is generally
    considered faster than one built with hubs.

    Also consider that some routers have SWITCH implementations while others only
    act as a NAT enabled hub.

    So, what's the diff? -- see this article.

    Hubs broadcast network traffic to all computers on the network, switches direct traffic just to its destination
