Hi every bodY
In If hosts are connected using ethernet via hub, mac layer on each host determines when host can or can not send data.
But in switched ethernet where host are connected to switchport and there is no contention as to who access the medium first, Do we need mac lyer in switched ethernet? if yes what purpose will it serve?
thanks a lot!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry, i was talking purely about the CSMA/CD part of the mac-layer. I was probably being a bit literal !!
that was clear to me.
By the way
My compliments for your 10000 points in netpro !

Many thanks. I fully expect to see you joining me, and if you carry on the way you are now, it won't be too far in the future.
"But be advised I am getting started as well :-)"
I noticed and i wish it wasn't in LAN Routing and Switching. Could you not specialise in something that me & Giuseppe dont such as IP telephony :-).
Seriously, you are more than welcome Sarah, good to have you in this forum.
