Ethernet

Ethernet at English => English (GNU/Linux) Of Explained:

A very common method of networking computers in a LAN. There is more than one type of Ethernet. By 2001 the standard type was "100-BaseT" which can handle up to about 100,000,000 bits-per-second and can be used with almost any kind of computer. From Matisse http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Linux-Dictionary/

Ethernet at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Telecommunications networking protocol introduced by Xerox Corp. in 1979. It was developed as an inexpensive way of sending information quickly between office machines connected together in a single room or building, but it rapidly became a standard computer interconnection method. The data rate is 10 megabits per second. The original specification required coaxial cable as the communications medium, but costs have been reduced through the employment of simple paired wires.

ethernet at English => English (Computer) Of Explained:

Ethernet

A {local area network} first described by
Metcalfe & Boggs of {Xerox PARC} in 1976. Specified by {DEC},
{Intel} and {XEROX} (DIX) as {IEEE 802.3} and now recognised
as the industry standard.

Data is broken into {packets} and each one is transmitted
using the {CSMA/CD} {algorithm} until it arrives at the
destination without colliding with any other packet. The
first {contention slot} after a transmission is reserved for
an {acknowledge} packet. A {node} is either transmitting or
receiving at any instant. The {bandwidth} is about 10 Mbit/s.
Disk-Ethernet-Disk transfer rate with {TCP/IP} is typically 30
kilobyte per second.

Version 2 specifies that {collision} detect of the transceiver
must be activated during the {inter-packet gap} and that when
transmission finishes, the differential transmit lines are
driven to 0V (half step). It also specifies some {network
management} functions such as reporting {collisions}, retries
and {deferrals}.

Ethernet cables are classified as "XbaseY", e.g. 10base5,
where X is the data rate in {Mbps}, "base" means "{baseband}"
(as opposed to {radio frequency}) and Y is the category of
cabling. The original cable was {10base5} ("full spec"),
others are {10base2} ("thinnet") and {10baseT} ("twisted
pair") which is now (1998) very common. {100baseT} ("{Fast
Ethernet}") is also increasingly common.
