Hubs are extremely cheap these days. You can buy yourself a 4 port hub for less than $35US dollars. If your after the more advanced hubs with features e.t.c then your looking at a lot more.

Making your own hub is possible, but finding the schematics for one and the parts is a different story [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Anyone got any hub schematics lying around ?
