FIgure2-2 show the vantage across a boradcast domain. should be FIgure2-2 show the vantage across a collision domain.

Note from the Author or Editor:
the sentence beginning "Figure 2-2 shows the vantage across a broadcast domain." should be changed to "Figure 2-2 shows the vantage across collision domains." This changes the text to correctly match the terminology in the figure.

The penultimate paragraph on page 21 refers to "Router 1" and "Router 2" in in explaining Figure 2-4, however Figure 2-4 does not have any devices thus labelled.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In the text beginning "Figure 2-4 shows an example", change any reference to "router 1" to "the top router", and any reference to "router 2" to "the bottom router". This will fix the text without changing the image.
