Does a circuit between two points simultaneously send and receive? Specifically IP traffic?

Cristian Ciupitu, j s,
What do you mean by circuit? the whole path?
Anyway here are some possible answer.
Coaxial cable is half-duplex so you can't send and receive simultaneously.
UTP (unshielded twisted pair - a cable similar with the one used by
telephones) is full-duplex so you can send and receive in the same time.
About the routers, this is router specific and I don't see how this
would affect you. This would affect only an advanced user.
