The Layer 2 broadcast is the destination address of the Layer 2 package is FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF.
I have a question about the broadcast MAC address.
you see the ARP request, it send the destination MAC address to the broadcast.

192.168.1.165). Why the broadcast only send 6 times rather than 256 times(

/8 segment, whether it will literally so many addresses? or it will only traversal the addresses in the LAN?
I mean if there only
10.10.10.5/8 in the LAN, if send data to
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff, will it traversal the other two addresses, or from the
