Abstract

Layer 2 loops are a major problem on Ethernet networks covering both computers and switches. Loop prevention protocols, such as STP, RSTP, and MSTP, can be used on switches to prevent such loops. This chapter provides background information about STP and describes how STP is used to prevent Layer 2 loops.
