This is my first time doing networking and we've been stuck with an assignment that has me stumped, I've managed to struggle through some of it. I came across this question and I have no idea how to answer it, I haven't come across any relevant resources or information.
Assume that the switching time (time to store and forward a packet) is 10
microseconds. Will that have a significant impact on the application response time
(request response) if the client is located at east cost and the server located at west cost and assuming that the propagation delay in the links between the client and
server is approximately two thirds of the speed of light. Justify your answer.
(assume east-cost west-cost distance is 5000 km and a speed of light of 200 meters/microsec.)
Also how does the IP address of a device on the network change if you replace a router with a bridge ?
