    basically, both are designed to network your computers

    the hub connects your computer but the speed gets slower as the no. of computers increases, compared to switches, each port is independent...if you have a 4-port switch, then all of them are gonna get the same speed/bandwidth...so mas preferred and switch

    what you need is a cable/dsl router, even those with wireless connection...there are a lot there in the market with linksys being given very favorable reviews so far, then there's d-link, netgear, IO gear, etc.
    almost all models have built in switch in them...4 ports are the most common, they say you can use up to 250 computers on it, using other switches to expand your network.

    yung pldt mydsl, alam ko they also market linksys routers...

    plug and play lang usually yan kung cable connection ka, pero kung dsl, PPPoE (not sure)

    wala atang router/hub combination

    the router basically fools your isp into thinking that only a single computer is connected...since it will give the computers an internal ip addresses and the one that's visible to the internet is your public ip (the one provided by your isp), so the function of the router is to route infos. from outside to those internal ip address...also called NAT, serves as your hardware firewall. =)

    on your first question, ok lang ibang brand ng lan card ang bilihin. since the only job of the lancard is to have your computer connected to the network, ok lang maski anong brand yan, as long as it is compatible (which in any case, it should be, unless you buy a lancard for an AS400 and you will install it in your PC... )

    second question, there are lots of routers available in the market today. recommended brands are CISCO, LinkSys, 3COM.

    for price reference, try to visit Villman (http://www.villman.com.ph), although mas mahal ang price nila kesa sa ibang retailers/outlets, somehow you can get some idea how each one costs.

    maraming differences and its very technical, but the most basic difference for your purpose is that the router will allow you to connect all your PCs to your DSL modem while the hub or switch will just connect all your PCs together and not be able to connect to the DSL modem.

    you can mix and match network components such as network cards, no problem whatsoever.

    for the router you can opt for a wired or wireless one. Personally, I use a Linksys router/switch for my home network. I has 1 port for the modem, 1 for cascading (connecting other hubs/switches), and 4 switch ports. At most, I only connect 3 PCs and laptops anyway.

    if you don't wanna go through the hassle of laying out a long ethernet cable from your computer on the 2nd flr, mag wireless adapter ka nalang, there are ones for the desktop...that is of course if you'll be getting a wireless router! kung linksys router mo, mag linksys adapters ka naren...but yes, there should be no problem with using multiple brands.

    meron den palang adapter that plugs to your usb port para mas madali! around 2-3k plus ata ang mga wireless adapters...make sure its 802.11b or g compliant

    HTH!

    routers will give you the same speed as when you are using a single PC. Hubs will connect your computers to a network.

    pdeng pagsamahin sa isang router ang magkaibang OS right? win2k and win98 kse ung asa bahay e, win2k ung naka internet

    You can network different OS, kahit linux + windows + mac. Gamit ko na router DLink Wireless G, sa office nagbebenta kami ng Linksys Wireless G sa mga customer namin.
