Explanation:
firmware - Software (programs or data) that has been written onto read-only memory (ROM). Firmware is a combination of software and hardware. ROMs, PROMs and EPROMs that have data or programs recorded on them are firmware.

hub
1. - A common connection point for devices in a network. Hubs are commonly used to connect segments of a LAN. A hub contains multiple ports. When a packet arrives at one port, it is copied to the other ports so that all segments of the LAN can see all packets.

Firmware:
Software stored in ROM or PROM; essential programs that remain even when the system is turned off.Firmware is easier to change than hardware but more permanent than software stored on disk.

hub:
Like the hub of a wheel, a central device that connects several computers together or several networks together.A passive hub may simply forward messages; an active hub, or repeater, amplifies or refreshes the stream of data, which otherwise would deteriorate over a long distance.
