Visit the TechWeb site: http://www.techweb.com/encyclopedia and search for the definition of ?encapsulation.? Read the second definition that is displayed the networking definition. Screen print the diagram shown and insert it immediately below. How many layers are shown in the diagram? _______. (Recall that the OSI seven-layer model is a reference model and that the actual protocol suites in use in modern networks don?t conform exactly.) From the TechWeb site also look up the definitions of ?layer 2? and ?layer 3? and ?CRC.? Read the definitions then screen print all three of them and insert them immediately below. 10.

Enter the first three pairs of digits of your MAC address into the search field then click Search!
