1.Does a Router also have a MAC address or just IP? 2.how does a router recognize a Switch because switches don't have IP address? 3.is it using the MAC? if so do routers deal with both network and data link layers? thanks

There's trunk, nonegotiate, dynamic desirable, dynamic auto, and access. (I think that's all of them). In addition to this, some switches can choose between dot1q …
