Ethernet Delivers the Internet Part 2: The Address Resolution Protocol

This movie explains how your computer learns the Ethernet address of it's neighbors on your local Ethernet.

When your computer has an IP message for one of your other computers, it must use your local Ethernet for delivery. However, unless it knows the corresponding, destination Ethernet address, the message can't be delivered even if the IP address is known. This 9-minute, narrated movie uses digital photos and extensive animation to show how the necessary Ethernet address information is exchanged.

This movie continues building an excellent foundation and introduction for anybody that wants to know how their Local Area Network works, and for people studying to learn the most basic concepts needed to pass any of these certification exams:
