What is the header length of Ether Net MAC?


The Ether Net MAC

The basic MAC data frame format for Ethernet used within the 10 and 100 Mbps systems is given above.

Mac header has following fields:

  • The first two fields are 6-byte source and destination address.
  • The last field is the 2-byte field length, which gives the length of the data field.
  • Because Ethernet has variable length data fields, their length needs to be known for the receiver to know where the frame ends.
  • The third field is the 4-byte virtual LAN tag.
  • When in use, the first two bytes are set 81 - 00 which tells the receiver that the VLAN tag field is being used.
