I am new to networking and I am reading books and articles about this so later I will take some certification tests.
I have two simple questions about networking:
1). I have trouble understanding the difference some books indicate that frame is smaller than packets and some said packet travel the the network by frams so I am confused.
My initial understanding is that packet is smaller and are carried by frams.
2). Why there is no mention to Bridges in networking books even here in EE they are not listed with the networking hardware. Are they not available any more or switches or other hardware do the same job?
I appreciate all coments and answer. Please say everything I really need to understand them
