How to find out if there is a HUB/Repeater between two routers/switches

Hi,
I would like to know if there is any way through packet exchange or any protocol mechanism to find out if there is a HUB/Repeater between two bridges/switches. The problem is that I have a OSI layer 2 feature which runs on layer 2 switches/bridges, however to function properly the feature requires that the two switches/bridges be directly adjacent to each other i.e. they cannot have a HUB/Repeater connecting them. If there is a way then we can scan all the ports of the bridge/switch on which this feature is running and make sure the feature runs only on the ports which are directly adjacent to another bridge/switch.
Thanks,
Rohit
