Routers separate network segments?
I thought that (sub)network segments were separated by hubs and switches, and that routers separate (sub)networks. Computers on either side of a router will obviously be on a different segment, but they'll be on a different segment in a different (sub)network altogether, so it's misleading (but technically true-ish) to list routers in this article. i.e. Routers are not used to separate segments that are segments of the same (sub)network.

Hubs do not seprate network segment
Using a hub to interconnect devices has the same results as having the network devices on one Ethernet 10BASE2 segment. (CCNA self-study p179 Question No.1)
