Hub (unsophisticated, rebroadcasts everything from your computer to everyone on the same hub)
Switch (like a hub but only broadcasts to where it should go—it filters and forwards)
Router (A device that forwards data packets along networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISP’s network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect)
NetBEUI stands for NetBIOS enhanced user interface. In turn, NetBIOS stands for network basic input/output system. This is an unroutable network protocol used by DOS, Microsoft Windows and OS/2-based systems to communicate with locally-attached file servers.
DOES NOT require special configuration
TCP/IP is the primary Internet protocol
TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with digital data packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and also guarantees that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent.
