In STP, the Port ID has two parts: configurable priority and a fixed port number (which is not the MAC address). On many switches, the port number is exactly the number after the slash, i.e. Fa0/1 is 128.1, Fa0/24 is 128.24. On some switches having GigE uplinks, Gi0/1 is 128.1, Gi0/2 is 128.2, and Fa0/1 starts with 128.3, Fa0/2 continues with 128.4, etc. The port numbers have no particular meaning except being unique for each port on a switch.
