hi dudes,

ethernet is just a name for a l2 protocol

 

a packet is smaller than a frame

 

to a packet a header is added, today in most cases ethernet

 

a packet has source / destination ip address

 

a packet with an ethernet header attached is called a frame and contains the layer 2 ethernet address which is the mac address, so source and destination mac address

everything is explained here:

and i think the main difference is that the frame is L2 and packet L3 in OSI model

where did you get that?

 

and what exactly "ethernet packet" is? packet don't belong to "ethernet", that's the difference. packet is from level 3 of OSI, frame - level 2.

correct me if I'm wrong

i mean as the packet goes through the osi model, it starts small, application data, then ip headers

 

before it is transmitted through the wire an ethernet header/hdlc header has to be added for the l2 addressing, making it "larger" so to speak

I found this when i am leafing default gateway use in DHCP.

 

My dough on that vidio is he said data transmitted from that router to pc in frames.I cant understand if frames an transfer data without IP address?
