    Layer 2 broadcast address are MAC addresse..FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF. At the layer the packet is encapsulated in a frame which has a header and trailer. Header has MAC destination address ( gateway router..or host) and source MAC address. + 802.2 info...
    Another type of Layer 2 broadcast is usually called multicast which is addressed to a subset of hosts on the LAN.
    There is also functional broadcast ( out of CCNA scope and concerns IBM token ring)
