    as far as I remember from my Uni days OSI is a way of using different Network protocols together such as appletalk and TCP/IP etc

    Network layer is basicly repsonsible for getting data from source to destination... this is usually done using the IP protocol.

    The Network Layer is responsible for routing and addressing. The different protocols of the OSI Model each play a part in the communication process and work together.

    Here's another Wiki link with a little more information on the Network Layer and how it works.
