      Hubs vs. Switches
  We get asked all the time what the difference is between a hub and a switch.  It is our opinion that a switch is always better than a hub if you are willing to spend the additional money.  Although switches are more expensive than hubs, the prices have come down drastically in recent years.  For a more technical explanation, click here.


      Wireless LAN?
  Believe it or not, wireless LANs are becoming very popular and for reason.  It used to be that wireless technology was unstable and cost prohibitive, but that was definitely a thing of the past.  The truth is that today you can network a small group of about 5 PCs for less than $500.  The benefits of a wireless LAN are pretty obvious when you consider the labor involved with running cabling, not to mention that your physical location is then fixed.  Wireless LANs give you the freedom to re-arrange your office any time you want without having to call the cabling person.
