What is a browser?

A web browser is a software application which enables a user to display and interact with text, images, videos, music, games and other information typically located on a Web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network. Ex Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari.

What is a Mac address?

Difference b/w dial up and DSL broadband.

The main difference the interviewer expects from you is that when using broadband a telephone call can be attended or made without loosing the internet connection(as both services voice and data are available on the same telephone line), however when using a dial up connection you can only use one service at a time, that is you can use the telephone or the internet but not both.

The other differences are the speed, dial up - 56 kbps, DSL broadband - from 128kbps to 8Mbps.

In dial up you need a dialer(software) and a number to dial to get connected to the internet. In broadband you configure the connection only once using your username and password and you would stay connected always.
