Q: What address does an Ethernet broadcast use?

  • FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:00
  • 00:00:00:00:00:00
  • 11:11:11:11:11:11

Explanation: When transmitting data over Ethernet, broadcasts make use of a unique MAC (Media Access Control) address that is referred to as the broadcast address. In Ethernet, the broadcast address is denoted by the destination address field being filled with binary 1s (or hexadecimal Fs), whichever is appropriate. In hexadecimal notation, the precise address for broadcasting is represented as FF:FF:FF:FF:FF: FF. When a frame is sent to this address by a device, it is meant to be received by all devices that are on the same network segment as the sending device.
