What is Ethernet? And how can all of its familiar abilities and/or new applications be discovered and mastered? The easiest way to do this is to watch an informative video on Youtube, a quick and easy source of information on this extremely important and valuable computer-age feature.
The innovative technology that is now known as “Ethernet” was invented by enterprising Xerox scientists back in 1974. Ethernet was originally designed as a means of connecting various huge main-frame computers that were mostly used at that time by large corporations. Since then, however, personal computers have entered the picture and Ethernet then became the main standard of means of system communication with regard to sending data from one computer system to another.
Ethernet technology accomplishes this interaction by use of data-transferring encoders called “frames”.
Recently, however, Ethernet’s superior technology has also been put to work in areas outside of basic computer-to-computer communication. Ethernet currently offers its users the very latest techniques for communicating between computers and various other appliances such as printers, digital media equipment and home theater systems. Ethernet also has developed wireless communications as well.
A firm grasp of the realities, uses and functions of Ethernet capabilities may not be necessary in order to send and receive e-mail or accomplish other basic tasks on a computer — but to be able to fully utilize all the whistles and bells that modern computers offer these days, it really helps to know how to use Ethernet technology to advantage.
For those of us who are pretty much techno-dunces, there are many educational videos now available on self-posting websites that clearly explain Ethernet’s design, uses and equipment — even to novices who have never heard of Ethernet’s functions and uses before. Many of these videos were posted by experts in the field and can be used to either get novices started or to clarify procedures for experts.
