Can someone please help me understand the difference between a token ring topology and a token ring network card; this is not a part of my homework, however a part of my research did involve reseaching a token ring topology and i came up with;
Ring topology is a computer network configuration where each network computer and device are connected to each other forming a large circle. Each packet is sent around the ring until it reaches its final destination. Today, the ring topology is seldom used. The ring network works on an equal share, where everyone gets to communicate in turn."
...And then a collegue of mine informaed me that there was a token ring network card, and although i have looked it up on the intertnet; most sites have referred to the topology and i don't really understand teh difference (unless of course they are the same thing :S)
