Any network hubs?

Go to solution Solved by mariushm,

They're not really making hub ICs anymore ... i mean you'll still find new hubs made with new old stock chips or made with new chips (because some company somewhere is forced due to contracts to make batches of chips for other companies or US military as spare parts)

 

A good starting point is this:  newegg>networking>wired networking>hubs:    https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100158107 600545528

Though they mix actual hubs with usb hubs or usb hubs that also put a network port on them (because they have usb-c input) so you'd actually have to filter results a lot. 

 

Actual hubs (from third party companies, probably listed at super high prices because they don't actually have them in stock now but don't want to remove listing from Newegg)

formatting is f***ed up, too lazy to fix it.
 

So I'm not looking to actually buy a network hub, I just need the link to one for a school project.

 

I've been looking for a while now and I can't seem to find any network hubs (I don't really care how good or bad it is). Can someone help me find one?

 

And BTW, I'd appreciate it if the link to the hub was on amazon.ca. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Do you need a hub? A smart switch can do the same thing. 

 

Otherwise id go to a used hardware store there easy to find.

No I'm not buying a hub, I just need to link to one (for a school project).

I dont think network hubs are made anymore, think it is all network switches.

Theres a big difference between how a hub and a switch handle traffic.  Hub's blast the same traffic to all the devices plugged into it, a switch does not.  Hubs are very inefficient and are limited to very slow speeds.

IK, that's why I had so much trouble finding a hub.

Eh ... another tip .. may want to add  "industrial" in front of google searches, like search for  "industrial ethernet hub"

 

they still make ruggedized versions or... well, they just make as replacement parts for industrial machines i guess.

 

In some very rare situations hubs are more convenient than switches, or some machines are made to take advantage that unlike with switches, in a hub data packets are forwarded automatically to all ethernet ports, ignoring mac addresses and other crap.

Some also use them for cheap "port mirroring", because it makes it easier to log traffic to and from a machine

 

here's an example website: https://www.phoenixcontact.com/online/portal/pi?1dmy&urile=wcm%3apath%3a/pien/web/main/products/list_pages/Hubs_P-08-10-03-01/93ec6cfb-8cd7-4ef1-9a3b-3348fc846eb4

 

But i doubt someone would pay $500 for one, here's a store selling them: https://www.digikey.com/products/en/networking-solutions/switches-hubs/927?k=&pkeyword=&pv183=8096&sf=0&FV=ffe0039f&quantity=&ColumnSort=0&page=1&pageSize=25
