well where you're from is the correct place.

im only use to calling it daisey channeling because i work in audio, and in audio mixer boards each line has its own channel, so when we daisey chain stuff, we just callit daisey channeling.

but the correct term is daisey chaining.



hub and switch do the same thing, a switch is better because you get more bandwidth, because instead of like a hub when you need to send packets to one computer, a hub sends the packets to all ports, where as in a switch, it automatically sends it to the correct port instead of all ports. <- basically a short cut down version summary

thank you all, i get it now, plus i did some extra research on it. So all i have to do is enable DHCP on the router, and connect the router to the uplink on the hub, and bam 4 more ports

thanks

DHCP is probably already enabled on your router (unless you disabled it). so you just need to plug an ethernet cord from one of the four LAN ports on the router to the uplink port on the hub. If there isn't a port on the hub marked uplink, its most likely port five or one.

then anything connected to the hub will pull an IP from the router. but honestly i would get a cheap used five port linksys switch off eBay.
