Unformatted text preview: K × 512 bit times after a collision, where K is drawn randomly. For K = 100, how long does the adapter wait until returning to Step 2 for a 10 Mbps Ethernet? For a 100 Mbps Ethernet? 4. Consider a network in which there are four hosts, A, B, C and D, connected to a switch in a star topology. Host A is connected to interface 1 of the switch, host B to interface 2, host C to interface 3 and host D to interface 4. Suppose that (i) A sends a frame to D and (ii) D replies with a frame to A.
