802.1q is an Ethernet frame format with a special tag that allows it to be “stacked” onto another frame. This allows devices that use the Ethernet to communicate with each other without using a separate network connection.
I have a question. When an 802.
If this is the only way a 802.
802.1q frame could be sent to another station, in theory that could be a problem, particularly for wireless devices. However, 802.1q frames still need to be tagged to allow them to be stacked up onto another 802.1q frame, so if this is the only way a 802.1q frame could be sent to another station, that could be a problem, particularly for wireless devices. However, 802.
802.1q frames are the only ones that need to be tagged.
802.1q frames are used for short-range connections, and the only other types of frames that would need to be tagged are 802.11 frames (the newer version of the 802.11 standard for wireless LANs) and 802.3 frames (the version we use today). 802.1q frames are the only type of frame that is required.
802.1q frames are not a standard, or even widely used today, and it’s possible that an 802.1q frame to a wireless device could be received by a station that is not a device with 802.1q support.
The 802.11 standard, which was created by IEEE in 1993, and is widely used for wireless LANs, is a standard for wireless point-to-point communication. 802.11 is not a standard or a standard for wireless LANs.
