    If we share internet by wireless network, it’s that access point work as SWITCH (share internet for 24pc at same speed) or HUB (share internet by averange)?

      The internet connection speed will be split among the all current users, but NOT always equally.

      1 user on-line will get the slower of the internet connection speed or the network speed.

      2 users on-line will split the internet connection speed. It could either be an equal share, or 1 user may get priority and have more of the bandwidth.

      File downloads tend to hold a greater percentage of the shared bandwidth than browsing.

      Regular network traffic will also impact the internet bandwidth that each user has.

      A switch always trumps a hub since it does not broacast every packet and only sends information to the node it is addressed to, so this saves on bandwidth.
