- Correct. The article is about a blimp. --188.8.131.52 12:59, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
This article isn't very clear and needs rewording. It has too much jargon - how does this differ from the more common twisted pair interface? AUI is just for one media isn't it? Secretlondon 17:57, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
- AUI is used to connect a 10 megabit ethernet card to a transceiver, That other side transceiver can connect to any 10 megabit ethernet standard. However in practice AUI is normally associated with thicknet because the other common 10 megabit ethernet standards were generally used with transcivers integrated into the network card.
- MII does the same for fast ethernet, it is pretty rare (at least as an accessible interface, i belive the electrical part of the spec is used on some ethernet cards without ever going though a connector) as the vast majority of fast ethernet cards include an onboard (or even onchip) transceiver.

I propose that we do not need separate articles on each flavor of MII. There is no reason it can't be put into one article. Combining it all will improve ability to discover all the available information on the topic. --Kvng (talk) 04:23, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
- I would agree. One encyclopedic article with sources (and a diagram, eventually) vs. stubs that are little more than definition by jargon. Especially would allow a discussion of how the variants evolved, etc. W Nowicki (talk) 17:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
