I think networking hardware might refer to the equipment you use for your network while hardware network could refer to hard wired network as opposed to wireless.
I hope I am right. I have only applied my knowledge of The English Language to this question.
i had to agree to lan2wan. networking hardware might probably refer to the materials (physical hardware) used to network while hardware networking could mean process of invoking a network into a system that could be both on the physical and logical aspects of things.
well, just out of curiosity, why ask such a question?... :roll:
