Wireless Network

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.
