>4- what is the maximum distance between any two points in a autonm.

I mean the number of hops on the network topology of a provider.
Not how many hops a particular protocol (RIP) will take or
the distance in miles etc. Simply the "diameter" (i.e. longest
shortest path where the distance measure is the hop count).

thnx and sorry for confusion.
