In Cisco Packet Tracer, multiple computers can communicate through a hub.

  Cisco Packet Tracer 6.2.0

   First, add three computer equipment

     1. Follow the steps 1 and 2, and perform the 2 steps three times. Drag and drop the PC on the way. You can also hold down the Ctrl key and click the three blank spaces during the 2 steps to place the three computers.

   Second. Add a hub to the picture

    1, follow the steps 1, 2, and 3, add a hub to the device

   Third. Connect the PC device to the hub

     1. Connect the hub and PC0 as in 1, 2, 3, and 4, repeat steps 3 and 4 to connect PC1 and PC2 to the hub.

   Fourth, set the IP address of the PC

     1. Click PC0, and a dialog box will pop up. For example, set the IP to You can select the IP segment according to your own situation.

    2. Follow the steps to set the IP address and subnet mask of PC1 and PC2 as follows:

   Fifth. Test that the three PCs can communicate with each other

     Here we use the ping command to test the communication between PCs. It can also be tested by simulation.

     select any one of the PCs, we assume that PC1 computer is selected here.

     1. Click the icon, and a dialog box will pop up. The operation is as follows, and then command the terminal too early.

    2, enter in the pop-up terminal:

      Ping and wait for the data packet to return the result

      Ping and wait for the data packet to return the result

      If the result appears, it means that the communication is normal.


The hub networking method has been abandoned by the times. The reason is that the hub sends data packets in the form of broadcast. When the amount of data packets is relatively large, network congestion is prone to occur.
The large networking methods we see now are all carried out through switches or routers, and hub networking can be used as an understanding.
