  • Combine 802.2 with Ethernet II to run IP

    Posted February 12, 2001 - 5:08 pm

    I manage 3 small LANs. The main one is 40 nodes. Two smaller ones that have 15 nodes each are connected to the main LAN via two T-1 lines. Right now we use three Novell NetWare 3.12 servers with a frame 802.3. I heard it would be better to use frame 802.2 and also Ethernet II if we want to use TCP/IP as well as IPX/SPX. Why should I make this change?
