Network switch or hub?

I have a 4 port ethernet broadband router supplied by BT, I need to expand the number of network connections but am unsure whether I need a network hub or switch?

Can anybody point me in the right directions.

Both would do for the task but if you want more control over the network eg allowing access to the internet from some machines and not others then a switch would be better.
