Hi all and thanks in advance. I'll start with some background.
I live in an apartment which provides internet service included in the rent. They use company called pavlov for the internet http://pavlovmedia.net/
wireless seems to be working fine but wired connection is at least %30 faster.
Ethernet, cat5 outlet is built in the wall, and there is only 1 outlet in each room.
I would like to take this 1 outlet coming out the wall and multiply it into 4 wires, for desktop, playstation, tv and laptop without loosing any internet bandwidth.
i have absolutely no idea weather this line is coming from a switch or a router but i have been researching Ethernet splitter, routers, switches, hubs and haven't found a solid answer. what is the best solution for me?
thank you once again!
EDIT: ok this picture cleared few things http://www.home-network-help.com/images/home-network-expanded.jpg
so seems that an ethernet switch is to ethernet as a USB hub is to USB but with packet inspection.
what is really 10/100Mbps Network Switch and what is the cap?
