    Is there anyone that is aware of a low cost 4 port 10/100/1000 MB hub
    that is available? There seems to be a lot of switches around but not
    any hubs. I am looking for something I can easily insert in an Ethernet
    network to look at traffic on a given segment of the the network. I
    currently use a Netgear DS104 for that purpose but that is only 10/100.

    No such animal as a Gbit capable hub (all 8 wires are used for a Gbit
    connection). In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find a 10/100 hub other
    than in a museum or someone's junk box these days.

    The portability is the problem. A managed hub can usually be configured
    to treat two ports as the same LAN segment (aka act as hub)
