Sorry, but what else could I tell than wikipedia does:
| General description
| Ethernet is based on the idea of peers on the network sending messages
| in what was essentially a radio system, captive inside a common wire
| or channel, sometimes referred to as the ether. (This is an oblique
| reference to the luminiferous aether through which 19th century
| physicists believed electromagnetic radiation traveled.) Each peer has
| a globally unique 48-bit key known as the MAC address factory-assigned
| to the network interface card, to ensure that all systems in an
| Ethernet have distinct addresses. Due to the ubiquity of Ethernet,
| many manufacturers build the functionality of an Ethernet card
| directly into PC motherboards.
