Hi all,

Can someone explain the difference between an ethernet hub and an
ethernet switch, since both appear to serve the same purpose.

The reason I ask is that I wish to extend my home network and it may be
simpler to purchase a hub/switch rather than install more wiring. 
Basically I screwed up at the planning stage :-)
