On a switched ethernet a NIC in promisc mode will only receive the packets
which are broadcasted (i.e. ARP) and those which are send directly to the
HW-Address of the interface. Thats the reason why u have less collisions
with switches, cause they simply filter the Packets on the net for each
port. You can also lock the arp-addresses in the switch for more security.
