This Linksys 5 Port Workgroup Hub is an excellent little bit of kit. We have had 3 X-Box's running through it (on 2meg Broadband) and a PC for basic surfing with no noticeable lag.

This is a solid hub. The Linksys Hub is made ruggedly from ABS plastic. I have dropped mine many times and it still serves me like it's new; and I've had mine for 4 years. I have had no problems with it at all, not even with the variety of O.S.'s I have used with it. (linux, OS2, Win9x NT 2K, Dos + win31, Unix, Etc).
