Why does a hub not support full duplex

  1. Apr 14, 2014 #1
    I believe full duplex is possible due to separate send and recieve cables, and not whether the repeater broadcasts any income signal,
    So, can we discuss this, I want to agree to my self that if you connect a send and recieve cable to the hub, then the hub takes care of the send alone, and hence half duplex,
    I believe, if it would have separate channels for sending and recieving, i,e sending cabling are on separate domain with receiving, full duplex would be possible
    what do you say guyz, because allnthe above is my suggestion...

    Here is some explanation for you. I think it falls into your description.
