  • A managed switch gives you greater flexibility because it can be configured. For example, you can monitor a managed network switch and adjust it locally or remotely. This gives you control over network traffic and who has access to the network.
  • In the most basic networks, devices are connected with hubs. But there's a limit to the amount of bandwidth users can share on a hub-based network. The amount of time data takes to get to its destination increases on hub networks as more devices are added. A switch avoids these and other limitations of hub networks.
  • A router also connects networked computers to the Internet, allowing multiple users to share a connection. And a router acts as a dispatcher. It chooses the best route for information to travel, so that it's transmitted as efficiently as possible.

  • A switch is a handy gadget that lets you add more wired devices to your network with ease.
  • Each device connected to the switch is automatically connected to everything else connected to the switch. So if you hook up your cable modem to a router, then connect the router to a switch, you can connect other devices to the Internet simply by plugging them into the switch.
  • Here’s what I do: Instead of having to run a number of long Ethernet cables from my home office to my primary D-Link router in another room, I manage a single cable: the cord that connects my router to my desktop switch. I can now use short network cables to connect devices around my desk and it’s a lot easier to remove these cables (to reduce clutter) when I’m done.

  • Each computer plugs into the hub with an Ethernet cable
  • hub can't identify the source or intended destination of the information it receives
  • ends the information to all of the computers connected to it, including the one that sent it

"A free library of HTML, CSS, JS nuggets"

  • Select boxes are a two tap/click operation. They take the user out  of the flow of the form, and usually there are certain answers that will be more commonly chosen than others.  Take the example above, most would reply with "yes" or "no". Or maybe you would prefer people to give a definite yes/no answer.  This plugin provides the ability to bring those options outside of the select list.

  • A little js library (~8kb, no dependencies) to help you keep track of position, scrolling, and pagination.
