Hi every one,
How many MAC address does an L2 switch have, does it have MAC address for each and every port or one MAC for the switch as a whole????say i have scenario in which my host is directly connected to a router through ethernet , what normally happens is that to start communication the host finds the MAC address of the respective router interface through ARP broadcast, incase i place an L2 switch in between the host and the router , at that point what would be the destination MAC adress for the host so that it can reach the router ?? Also again if i replace the L2 Switch with a L1 Switch/HUB what will be the destination MAC in that case too ???
