Hi, :tazz:

Where I work we currently have about 9 network connections to a hub which then goes to a wireless antenna for wireless internet.

We are continually experiencing slow connections speeds. We recently upgraded our bandwidth from 128k to 512k and have noticed no change in speed.

I am wondering whether the Hub we are using is a bottleneck and whether or not to replace it with a good router.

What exactly is your setup? A hub and a Router are used for different things. It would more correct to replace a hub with a switch for increased performance. A SOHO router will usually have a 4 port switch. But the "Router" is what shares your internet connections. How are they shared now? With another Router or a PC using ICS??
