Hi! This is Mike Callahan, Doctor File Finder and welcome to your Butterscotch.com tutorial on what is an Ethernet? Quite simply, Ethernet is a term for a network. The early computer guys were creating our first network, somewhere around 1974 or 1975. They decided to call it Ethernet after the concept of Aether that was in early alchemy. The Aether was supposed to be a very pure layer of air. Ethernet used cards like this, this connector for the cable, coaxial cable which is also a connection via plug. So you connect either way on an Ethernet.
And the thing about an Ethernet is that it was based on cables like this one. It’s kind of like a large phone jack cable. So an Ethernet is simply a term used to refer to a network that was based on cables. You hear at less today because of so much emphasis and used of wireless networks. Wireless network is still a LAN but it’s not exactly an Ethernet because it doesn’t use cables. So that’s Ethernet and that’s all there is to it.
