Ethernet Port Definition

An Ethernet port is an opening on any computer network equipment whose function is to connect wired hardware in a local area network, wide area network or a metropolitan area network. They are the most popular sort of connection computers that are utilized in a LAN. These ports are very similar to a regular phone jack, but just a bit wider. And, even though they look similar the fact that the Ethernet port is slightly wider makes it impossible to put it into the wrong port.

Two common models of Ethernet are 10BaseT and 100BaseT. The data transfer speed in a 10BaseT Ethernet connection can reach 10 Mbps by means of a copper cable. While the transfer speeds in a 100BaseT Ethernet connection get up to 100 Mbps.

Every well-known broadband router usually has a few Ethernet ports. In a network, multiple wired computers can connect to the internet and other devices by using an Ethernet port. In router mode, the Ethernet port is basically used to connect to an already existing wired network. Normally wireless routers are inclusive of four Ethernet ports and one WAN port for wired connections. While the use of the Ethernet port in a repeater and wifi hotspot mode is mainly to connect a wired client to the wireless network.

One built-in Ethernet port is included in almost all desktops to connect the device to a wired network. The Ethernet network adapter, which is attached to the motherboard, is connected to the computers built-in Ethernet port. In order to help you connect it to a network that has no wireless capabilities laptops also normally have an Ethernet port.
