Hi,

I was under the impression that a hub was a better choice then a switch,because a switch sends the packet/data to all connected PC's.Where a hub sends to the destination PC only?.

Cheers

Wrong way round. It is the Hub which sends data to all connected devices and lets them sort out what is theirs. The Switch is the the more intelligent device which sends data only to the appropriate IP address.
