Network Interfaces

Network Interfaces

Network interfaces connect clients, servers, and peripherals to the network. Most network interfaces consist of a small circuit board that you insert into one of your computer's internal slots. Alternatively, modern computers sometimes include the network interface as part of their main circuit boards (motherboards). Each network interface is associated with a unique address called its media access control (MAC) address. The MAC address helps route information within your local area network and is used by switches and bridges.

The MAC address is just one of several network addresses assigned to each networked client, server, or peripheral. Another network address is the device’s Internet, or TCP/IP, address. This address helps route information between networks. Every networked device maintains multiple, simultaneous network addresses which are used for different purposes.
