      You first question is answered in the first paragraph of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadcast_address .

      Your second question is unclear, because it doesn’t tell what you mean with “the whole system”.

      Of course! I’ll try to provide a basic explanation of networking concepts without going too deep into technical details. Feel free to ask for further clarification if needed.

      What is a Network?
      A network refers to a collection of devices (such as computers, smartphones, servers, etc.) that are connected together to communicate and share resources. Networks can be local, connecting devices within a limited area (like a home or office), or they can be global, connecting devices across the internet.

      IP Address:
      An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique identifier assigned to each device on a network. It allows devices to send and receive data to and from each other. IP addresses come in two versions: IPv4 (e.g., 192.168.0.1) and IPv6 (e.g., 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334).

      Router:
      A router is a device that connects multiple networks together, such as your home network to the internet. It directs data packets between different networks, ensuring they reach their intended destinations.

      DNS (Domain Name System):
      DNS is a system that translates domain names (like http://www.example.com) into IP addresses. When you enter a domain name in a web browser, the DNS server resolves it to the corresponding IP address so that the requested website can be accessed.

      Protocols:
      Protocols are a set of rules that govern how data is transmitted, received, and interpreted on a network. Examples include TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and IP (Internet Protocol), which are fundamental protocols for communication on the internet.

      LAN and WAN:
      A LAN (Local Area Network) is a network that covers a small area, such as a home or office. It is used for local device communication. A WAN (Wide Area Network) spans a larger geographic area and connects multiple LANs together. The internet is the largest example of a WAN.

      Firewall:
      A firewall is a security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules. It helps protect networks from unauthorized access and potential threats.

      Wi-Fi:
      Wi-Fi is a wireless technology that allows devices to connect to a network without the need for physical cables. It is commonly used for internet access in homes, offices, and public spaces.

      When it comes to healthy snacks, there are plenty of options to choose from. Incorporate nutrient-rich choices like fresh fruits, vegetables with hummus, Greek yogurt, nuts, seeds, or whole grain crackers with nut butter into your snacking routine. These delicious and nourishing snacks will keep you energized and satisfied throughout the day.
