"In 1994, LAN was a coaxial cable with terminators at each end."

While coax and AUI were still around in 1994, the move to UTP and star topologies was well under way. I certainly managed to put my foot through a few ceiling tiles installing UTP between 1992 and 1994.

10BaseT was standardised in 1990 and the move away from shared network segments/hubs/repeaters was probably best signalled in 1994 when Cisco brought Kalpana. In 1995, we got fast ethernet.
