I just read a book, which says the maximum nodes for a ETHER network is 1024, and for FDDI is 500, for Token Ring is 260. Is there anyone can tell me why they are 1024, 500, and 260. Are the maximum "hard" limitations? If there are more than one VLANs in a network, are these limitations for any VLAN or for the whole network? Is there any similar limitation for FAST ETHER network?
