Adding PS3 to network using a hub?

I have recently purchased a PS3 and would like to add it to my network. I currently have router in an upstairs room and it is linked to my PC in the basement using an ethernet cable.My new PS3 will also go in the basement. Question: as there is only the single cable going to the basement could I link the PS3 using a hub? I have a small Netgear hub left over from years ago would this work? If I did use the hub would I get full speed on the PC or PS3 as long as one or the other was switched off or would I always get half speed regardless?

Can anyone of you kind people offer advice?

Read this, Layer 1(Hubs versus higher-layer switches): Click here

You would be better off with either of these,

1: NetGear GS105 5 Port Gigabit Switch

2: NetGear 5 Port 10 / 100 / 1000mbps Gigabit Switch

ps. I have the latter..
