    1:37 How does Computer A send out a broadcast message? I'm confused

    Why do we need the mac address of certain computer ? if the computer's address is its last digit of the IP and the way it can be recignized in a network

    Hold on. If two devices have have unique IP addresses, why can't they use it to communicate? Why is knowing the MAC address necessary?

    "IP address is used to LOCATE a device on the network and the MAC address is what IDENTIFIES the actual device" πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š
