Is a Switch and Wireless Hub the Same Thing?

Yes and no. A switch can be described as a smart hub. A switch is used to connect computers and devices on a network, but is able to distinguish where to send transmissions.

Generally speaking, in a home wireless network, all you will need is a wireless hub. Larger, more complex networks, such as in offices, should consider using switches.
