Q

Ethernet and Token Ring

How do Ethernet and Token Ring LANs compare?
Token Ring is single access, meaning there is only one token. Thus, at any given time only one station is able to use the LAN. Ethernet is a shared access medium, where all stations have equal access to the network at the same time.
