    Forgetting the original purpose of the thread which was how to get the hub working again. The fundamental differentiator between hub and switch is a switch makes forwarding decisions based on the destination MAC address a hub transmits on all ports. If you want a quick test to see if you have 100 or 10 mbps end to end then ping each device with 15000 bytes. “Ping -l 15000 nnn.nnn.nnn” . If you get 3 msec response you are looking at 100 mbps, and if you get 30 msec you are on 10.worse figures indicate half duplex somewhere

    Indeed. I'm sorry I brought it up now - but my point was that just because you bought something called a hub, that doesn't mean that your device is going to forward all the traffic to every port. Most 'dual speed' (and full/half duplex) hubs of that era are of course just dumb ("unmanaged") switches.

    It don't matter now. Finless has a new toy to play with!

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    He has had it for nearly two days now without asking how it works. Must be going well.

    Or I've lost my network and, therefore, access to the internet?

    No, it seems to know what it is doing.
