How are Connection to the Internet broken down?
physical connection, the logical connection, and applications.
Explain the physical connection.
A physical connection is made by connecting an adapter card, such as a modem or a NIC, from a PC to a network. The physical connection is used to transfer signals between PCs within the local-area network (LAN) and to remote devices on the Internet.
explain the local connection
The logical connection uses standards called protocols
