I currently have two computers networked with a crossover cable, running MIDI Over Lan. It's a nice set-up but I want to add another computer. So I need to purchase a hub to network three or more computers.
Anyone have any advice on what sort of hub to get? Will a passive hub suffice or do I need an intelligent hub? What's the difference between these?
Will I still be able to use the one crossover cable for one of the connections and buy two more of them or do I need completely different cables? (I think the cable I have is a Cat 5e)
