    don't think the hub will make much difference in speed one way or the other.

    If you are downloading on two machines at the same time, you may see a difference if the files are large enough, but otherwise you should not see a difference in the speed.
    I have 3 on a hub and we play games at times on them and can't see any difference, but if I do a download speed test on two at the same time, yes, then the bandwidth is affected and the speed drops.
