hi guys I have couple of questions :)
1) what does the first and last halves of a network card specify?
2) If I want to connect 3 hubs together and only two of them have uplink ports...how would I do that? And what type of cable should I use?
I am newbie trying to learn :)...thanks
1) what are you talking about?
Mac address length is 48 bits and I want to know...what the mac address discription is? :)
It's a theoreticaly unique number associated with your network card. In theory no other network card should have that mac address.
The MAC address is a unique value associated with a network adapter.
MAC addresses are 12-digit hexadecimal numbers (48 bits in length).
MAC addresses are usually written in one of the following two formats:
The first half of a MAC address contains the ID number of the adapter manufacturer.
The second half of a MAC address represents the serial number assigned to the adapter by the manufacturer.
