A collision domain is all of the computers connected to a hub. Their
ethernet frames can have network collisions with anything in the collision
A broadcast domain is all of the computers connected to the same side of a
router*. Their broadcasts reach all through the broadcast domain.
Switches seperate collision domains.
Routers seperate broadcast domains.
It used to be said, back in the days before switches were used:
All computers on connected to a hub were on the same collision domain and
Seperate the computers with a network bridge and they have seperate
collision domains but still the same broadcast domain.
Seperate the computers to 2 seperate hubs with a router in between, 1/2 on
one side 1/2 on the other, they are in both seperate collision and seperate
It is not possible to be in the same collision domain but seperate broadcast
