what's the difference between an Ethernet address and a MAC address?
#1
Because to me they seem like the exact same thing. They identify the device in hardware. They are the physical address.

What is the difference between a hexadecimal number that identifies an Ethernet NIC and a hexadecimal number that identifies the node on Ethernet via the Ethernet NIC?

Because they both identify the Ethernet NIC.
