Repeater Hub / Switch

By Rabbit_Runner ·
We have need for 'repeater' hub or switch on our network (10/100 - TCP/IP). Currently we have two which are in use. Recently we added on to our network with a different segment. The length of the different wires are 100 meters and 65 meters. There will be handful of PCs at the two ends. None in the middle segment. Because of the distance we have been looking for 'repeater' hubs which can amplify the signal before it degrades.

However, in our search, we have not found any hubs or switches, from any manufacturer which reports or indicates any 'repeating' capability.

My question is this... Are there still 'repeater' hubs / switches being manufactured, OR is the 'repeating' feature already built into current hubs and switches? With either, can you point me to any web site or white paper which can fill me in on the details.

This network segment will be completely unusable without the repeaters.

Thanks in advance.

The "repeating" feature is pretty much built in now. With the current technology, you should be looking at a switch. I just upgraded my own company, and in doing the reasearch, the best white papers I found on switchs was at Intel.
www.intel.com
Search their site and you should find everything you need.
Hope that helps.

I agree with answer 1, another good source of information (whether technical or financial) is
