Hub:
Think of these as Surge Strips, in simplest terms.
A surge strip takes 1 outlet and makes it 6.
Hubs are similar in that they allow you to add devices to a connected network.

Switch:
Same thing as a hub, but it's "intelligent".
It will send broadcasts to only the segment that contains the PC expecting the response.
It will also store and forward packets when the network is congested, instead of dropping them and forcing the PC to retransmit.

Router:
A Router literally routes packets. It normally routes from 1 network to other networks. Examples might include a Cablemodem or DSL router. These route packets from your home network (at smallest a single PC), to and from the internet.
Special rules can be applied to routersthan govern what packets are allowed to travel between the 2 networks.
Another use is in WAN environments. Routers are used to only send the information to the remote site that requires it and to interconnect multiple sites to a single source of data.

There are special rules that determine how many and what types of equipment you can interconnect, but that seemed beyond the scope of your question.

For all that, reference the provided websites in the previous answer.

A common connection point for devices in a network. Hubs are commonly used to connect segments of a LAN. A hub contains multiple ports. When a packet arrives at one port, it is copied to the other ports so that all segments of the LAN can see all packets.
A passive hub serves simply as a conduit for the data, enabling it to go from one device (or segment) to another. So-called intelligent hubs include additional features that enables anadministrator to monitor the traffic passing through the hub and to configure each port in the hub. Intelligent hubs are also called manageable hubs.

A third type of hub, called a switching hub, actually reads the destination address of each packet and then forwards the packet to the correct port.

(1) In networks, a device that filters and forwards packets between LAN segments. Switches operate at the data link layer (layer 2) and sometimes the network layer (layer 3) of the OSI Reference Model and therefore support any packet protocol. LANs that use switches to join segments are called switched LANs or, in the case of Ethernet networks, switched Ethernet LANs.

A device that connects any number of LANs.
Routers use headers and a forwarding table to determine where packets go, and they use ICMP to communicate with each other and configure the best routebetween any two hosts.

Very little filtering of data is done through routers. Routers do not care about the type of data they handle.
