The question is regarding Repeaters and Bridges.
Both Repeaters and Bridges introduce delays on an Ethernet Network. Brigdes just dont forward un-necessary packets to all the connected segments (besides other things).
What I want to know is, suppose, a "repeater R" and a "bridge B" introduce the same amount of delay on a LAN. Then, will the maximum distance between any two nodes on a LAN constructed using the repeater (R), be the same, compared to, the one constructed using the brigde (B)? Or, can this vary because of the segmenting properties of a Bridge...
Can you point me to a link which describes "What can be the maximum length of a LAN, based on a Bridge?"
