  Ethernet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ethernet was originally based on the idea of computers communicating over a shared coaxial cable acting as a broadcast transmission medium.
The Ethernet Version 2 or Ethernet II frame, the so-called DIX frame (named after DEC, Intel, and Xerox); this is the most common today, as it is often used directly by the Internet Protocol.
Ethernet was originally developed as one of the many pioneering projects at Xerox PARC.

 Ethernet
Since short Ethernet frames must be padded with zeros to a length of 64 bytes, each of these higher level protocols required either a larger minimum message size or an internal length field that can be used to distinguish data from padding.
Any Ethernet packet with a type/length field less than 1500 is in 802.3 format (with a length) while any packet in which the field value is greater than 1500 must be in DIX format (with a type).
Ethernet is supposed to be a single common medium with multiple connections.

Ethernet versions 1.0 and 2.0 followed until the IEEE 802.3 committee re-jigged the Ethernet II packet to form the Ethernet 802.3 packet.
Ethernet 1.0 did not have this in its standard and 802.3 says that repeaters must not connect to a transceiver that generates the SQE test because of the Jam signal that is designed to prevent redundant collisions from occurring.
Ethernet relies on electrical signalling to determine whether or not to send data, so a faulty card could stop all traffic on a network as it sends false signals causing other devices to think that the network is busy.

This type of ethernet is subject to the 5-4-3 rule meaning there can be 5 network segments with 4 repeaters, and three of the segments can be connected to computers.
Ethernet II - This frame type combines the 802.3 preamble and SFD fields and include a protocol type field where the 802.3 frame contained a length field.
Ethernet SNAP - This frame type builds on the 802.2 frame type by adding a type field indicating what network protocol is being used to send data.

 What is Ethernet? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: Alohanet
Specified in a standard, IEEE 802.3, Ethernet was originally developed by Xerox from an earlier specification called Alohanet (for the Palo Alto Research Center Aloha network) and then developed further by Xerox, DEC, and Intel.
Ethernet was named by Robert Metcalfe, one of its developers, for the passive substance called "luminiferous (light-transmitting) ether" that was once thought to pervade the universe, carrying light throughout.
Ethernet was so- named to describe the way that cabling, also a passive medium, could similarly carry data everywhere throughout the network.

Ethernet, one of the pivotal technologies that made Local Area Networks possible, was developed in the 1970s by Digital, Intel and Xerox.
Ethernet operates at 10Mbps per second, and its packets are between 64 and roughly 1500 bytes in length.
Ethernet manufacturers are assigned a unique vendor ID, and are then responsible for insuring that all of their devices have unique addresses in the last 3 bytes.

 Ethernet
Ethernet's bus topology permits devices to place data packets on the network anytime a device detect silence on the line.
To handle the demands of growth, an Ethernet can be extended using packet repeaters for signal regeneration, packet filters for traffic localization, and packet gateways for internetwork address extension.
Ethernet controllers in colliding stations each generate random retransmission intervals to avoid repeated collisions.

In coaxial cable Ethernet implementations, workstations are connected in a daisy-chain fashion by attaching segments of cable to each station as shown in A in Figure E-6.

Ethernet's collisions, which were the source of such controversy in the '80s, seem to have disappeared.
In the Ethernet business model, the model begins with a de jure standard hard-fought in standards organizations, which was the IEEE in Ethernet's case, and then it leads to implementations of the standard which are owned by their developers, not given away free like the open-source model.

This survey of the Ethernet is enriched by the authors intimate knowledge of its historical and developmental context.
He glances through the original 1970s papers by Metcalfe in which the Ethernet was parameterized as well as the unfortunate misunderstanding of Metcalfe's simple model of throughput, and the subsequent papers that tracked performance characteristics and corrected misunderstanding.
Ethernet has survived as the major LAN technology (it is currently used for approximately 85 percent of the world's LAN-connected PCs and workstations) because its protocol has the following characteristics: From Cisco Systems, Inc.

Ethernet allows communication between workstations and are "Networked" by the use of transceivers(MAU - Medium Attachment Unit), transceiver cables(AUI), Shielded coaxial cables and commonly used Unshieled Twisted Pair(UTP) and Shielded Twited Pair(STP).
Sun reserved ethernet range starts with 8:0:20:xx:xx:xx The QFE is presently the only Sun ethernet card that has unique Ethernet Numbers, and future cards are expected to use this feature.
If the Ethernet cable is disconnected, SPARC machines with the sun4m architecture usually display this message, whereas machines with the sun4c architecture usually display the "le0: No carrier-- transceiver cable problem" message instead.

 Ethernet
Ethernet was developed by the Xerox Corporation's Palo Alto Research Centre (known colloquially as Xerox PARC) in 1972 and was probably the first true LAN to be introduced.
Ethernet uses a simple Carrier-Sense Multiple Access protocol with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) to prevent two computers trying to transmit at the same time (or more correctly to ensure both computers retransmit any frames which are corrupted by simultaneous transmission).
Ethernet LANs may be implemented using a variety of media (not just the coaxial cable described above).

Ethernet is a network standard of communication using either coaxial or twisted pair cable.
The most widely used for of LAN communication, Ethernet typically runs at 10 megabytes per second, though newer systems use 100 Mbps, or ever gigabit of transfer.
There are several flavors of Ethernet, including 10Base2 (10 Mbps, 200 meters), 10BaseT (10 Mbps, 100 meters, twisted-pair), and 100BaseT (100 Mbps, 100 meter, twisted-pair).

 Ethernet
The original Ethernet was developed as an experimental coaxial cable network in the 1970s by Xerox Corporation to operate with a data rate of 3 Mbps using a carrier sense multiple access collision detect (CSMA/CD) protocol for LANs with sporadic but occasionally heavy traffic requirements.
Gigabit Ethernet, for example, is defined to operate over either twisted-pair or optical fiber cable, but each specific type of cable or signal-encoding procedure requires a different physical layer implementation.
Increasing the Ethernet transmission rate by a factor of ten over 10Base-T was not a simple task, and the effort resulted in the development of three separate physical layer standards for 100 Mbps over UTP cable: 100Base-TX and 100Base-T4 in 1995, and 100Base-T2 in 1997.
