Excellent article, but one question, if I may ask ? Isn't the Third Layer the Network Layer?

Very nice guide. I could have used this in a previous job interview when I got asked what the difference between a switch and a hub was. =P

Kudos to you!

can i ask a question here, i have loads of switches hubs and routers, now i had charter nd had a decent set up for a home network but that went through now that we dropped them, so my mother bought a Verizon mifi and i was wondering can i hook that tom my computer to receive the internet and send it out though the ethernet to other computers, and if so what would i want to use a hub (doubt it), switch, or router?
