Some time ago there was a question on this list that concerned the 
use of a 10/100 switch or hub. There was a reply stating that a dual 
speed hub would only work at the speed of the slowest connected 
device. So a mix of 10 and 100 devices would cause all to run at only 
10 mbps.

At the time I was dubious of this and have since looked into the 
question and while there may indeed be some hubs with this 
limitation, a modern autosensing dual speed hub will allow each 
device to run at its max speed, just as a switch will do, although 
without the other advantages of a switch of course, but they are 

Just thought I'd like to clear that up.
