Default Intel express 330T Stackable Hub

HI guys, I was wondering if I can use this for a LAN? Home or gaming LAN.

I can get my hand on one 330T, 210T and 220T , so before we throw then out I want to know what I can do with this.

Let me know!

Thanks

Yuck, a hub? Seriously? In this day...

If it was a switch, then it'd be worth while to keep but I don't know if you really want a hub...

You can use it just that it's not an overly efficient device. All packets are sent out all ports rather than to just the one that it needs to go to.

Ewwww, Hub. Can any one say collisions? Egh, even the mere thought of hubs makes me shiver, seriously even a crappy switch will work better than the best hubs.

To think, back in the day, even big corporations used them. Hard to fathom.
