This is an animated video that explains the difference between a hub, switch, and a router. It explains how a router works, how a switch works and how a hub works.

This is what I personally use
It's a modem/router combo that I have in my home.

      For the last example - What if the blue network had a hub instead of a switch? Would that mean the data from the red computer would go to each computer in the blue network?

      This has to be one of the best explanations I've come across on the Internet; I've now subscribed to this channel.

      One question about traffic flowing across the Internet in your last demonstration. If routers work by IP addresses, and Switches by MAC addresses, how does a packet of data make it from a router, to a switch, and then to a computer? Does the router have a table that maps IP addresses to MAC addresses?

      Thank you, and keep up the great work!

      Routers work by mac adresses and ip adresses.
