Hey may i know that what are those two devices? Means to say whether it is a computer or printer. Which type of connection are you using at home? Is it DSL, Fibre Otics or Dial up connection?


And last but not the least what's your internet speed?

According to me, you can either go for Router or for 5- 8 Ports Switch. Plug your ethernet cable connection into the switch and then try to plug more lan cables to the switch. You can use it for every device that you might be running off it.

I'll always recommend you to go for a Router or a Switch. But don't go for Hub, even if you just need one connectivity for your printer.
