Ethernet splitters & switches

Post by embleton » Wed Apr 10, 2019 11:47 pm

The practical issues with ethernet splitters are that the traffic cannot be routed. The routing ensures that the traffic is not broadcast completely around the network LAN. WIthout broadcasts, the LAN when using an ethernet switch is highly productive with low latency and high speeds when talking between the internet and local computers alike.
