    Given that this network protocol:
    Supports connectionless transmission.
    Operates at the Data Link Layer.
    Uses Microsoft NDIS to communcate with the network.
    Which network protocol am I?

    I think you may well be IPX being used with Microsoft's implementation i.e NWLink.

    But I could be wrong :rolleyes:

    I'm going for straight-forward IP on this one.

    Hmm it sounds like netware and ipx/spx to me.

    I belive you boys need to restudy your OSI model. ipx/spx operates at the network level. This protocol operates at the data link level. Thanks for responding though. :D

    Can I have 4 options in one then ?

    Either Token Ring, FDDI, ATM or HDLC.

    Don't care if you say I can't - you've got us wound up, and we demand that you stop teasing us !!!!!! :baby

    ARP?

    unfortunatly mitz you havnt asked a question with a single answer :)

    there are many data link layer protocols that are conectionless, and the fact that uses NDIS to communicate is a bit generic being its a windows API designed for just that function, and most protocols use it :)

    Phoenix,
    APR works at the network layer.

    Nice try but I gave you guys good clues. Now set a good example for the newbies and do some reasearch. :biggrin

    I agree with Phoenix Mitzs, I tried to research (google) the answer but was faced with a plethora of possible choices. 'tis a veritable can of worms Mrs, honest :oops:

    Mayhap a clue dear lady?

    Just for you pete. NOw lets see how I can word this without making it to easy. It is part of the Transport layer that operates at the data link layer. It can pass over a bridge but not a router. If that doesn't help I have one more clue for you guys.

    Mitz
    according to all my knowledge and recent research based on your post
    ARP does indeed work at the Data Link layer
    can you list sources stating otherwise?

    Thanks

    Edit: How about WiFi then? (802.11) its a layer 2 protocol that uses NDIS
