Can any one please point a web site or a book that explains on how to

build a hub or a switch for a LAN

There is a free Cisco like manual that a Jr. College professor

has written. It can be downloaded from the following site:



www.lulu.com/learningbydoing



Down near the bottom of the page the two manuals are free.



That will give you a pretty good understanding of ethernet

networks.



If you want to "build" a switch or hub. Might I suggest that

you carefully evaluate the make vs. buy decision. I picked

up a couple of 5 port 10/100 base T switches yesterday for $9.99 each

a the local electronics store. You can't even afford to buy

the connectors for that price.



Cheers,



Rich S.
