Networking for Dummies

When replacing 2 8-port hubs with a 16 port switch, simply unplugging all the cables from the 2 old hubs and plugging them all into the switch is not a good move.

I just did this and wondered why it completely knocked out unrelated sections of the network.

I'll leave it to you to work out my critical mistake. First correct answer wins a star.

Congrats to Finland for providing the most entertaining Eurovision Song Contest entry I've seen in a long time (and then winning). Truly deserved.

Of course, Terry Wogan's usual highly sarcastic presentation lived up to its usual expectations.
