can you explain this to me a little more ?

Re: frames/packets

Hi Carl,

As illustrated in the diagrams above, the IP packet is simply inserted inside the datagram/payload field of the frame, in other words the IP packet is the payload of the frame, i.e the frame encapsulates the IP packet.

HTH,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
