Great introduction to Ethernet, with many, many excellent links. Provides
historical information, descriptions of standards and information on all things
Ethernet. Not for the beginner, for the most part, but a great resource.
Used in course? Yes

Quite interesting on how the Internet open doors to different companies and
allowing them to be able to share and retrieve information with other companies
globally.

Technical Remarks:

This information is very informative for those that choose to know more on ways
about the managing of information electronically.

Good site- spent about 5minutes reviewing information. Site gives additional
information on the Ethernet with the breakdown of speeds. It can be used
effectivily as a learning tool.

system works.

Technical Remarks:

The links are very good at are very specific and will guide the user to accurate
information about all different types of Ethernet systems.

This site provides excellent information about Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) local area
network (LAN) technology, 10baseT, 100baseT, the 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet
system (802.3z/802.3ab), the 10 Gigabit Ethernet system (802.3ae), and many
other latest technology. I also found material very useful to update my
knowledge as a student

Excellent resource for information related to the subject of Ethernet. I found
the information informative and useful. The site is kept up to date and had much
information on a 10 Gigabit Ethernet, a version I was not aware of.

Technical Remarks:

I particularly liked how the author pointed out parts of his site that were
potentially outdated, such as the Ethernet FAQ.
