These addresses uniquely identify Ethernet network cards. Although all the computers in the network use Ethernet, not all connections are made over Ethernet.

IP Address: An address that is assigned for connecting the PC or Laptop to the router or to the default gateway of network. Computer systems on the same local subnet, share part of their IP addresses. Like 192.168.6.121 and 192.168.6.130.
