A Passive Ethernet Hub

I tested this concept on a little network consisting of three PCs running under Windows 2000. It works well. The network adapters are normal Intel and 3Com models, set to 10 Mbps and Half Duplex. The computers are labelled A, B, C, and the UTP cables from the computers to the hub are 10, 16 and 35 meters long, respectively.
