I understood stub network by analogy given in wiki.

Think of an Island which is connected to the rest of the world through a bridge and no other path is available either through air or sea.

A subnetwork (subnet) is a separate and identifiable portion of an organization's network, typically a local area network (LAN) comprised of all the machines on one floor, building or geographical location. Having several subnets allows an organization to be connected to the Internet with a shared network address, which means that all the machines on a given subnet have the same prefix to their IP addresses.
