MacVoices #773 – Pat Fauquet Makes Sense of Routers, Switches and Hubs

Pat Fauquet
MacVoices’ Tech Guru Pat Fauquet of Dr. Mac Consulting helps make sense out of the hardware aspects of networking. When shopping to create or expand your network you are confronted with many confusing options: routers, switches, hubs, wired, wireless…the list seems to go on and on. Pat attacks the issue by explaining how connectivity hardware has evolved as needs change, and helps you determine what you need by using her own network set-up as an example. Pat also talks about why Apple networking hardware should be your first choice and provides some simple procedures for fixing your network when things go haywire.
