Linux Gazette brings us: Network Protocol Stack & TCP hacking.

"Network devices form the bottom layer of the protocol stack. they use a link layer protocol (usually Ethernet) to communicate with other devices to send and receive traffic. The interface put up by the network device driver copy packets from a physical medium, perform some error checks,Then puts up the packet to the network layer. Output interfaces receive packets from the network layer, perform some error checks, and then send them out over the physical medium."
