Prior to completing this assignment, be sure that you have reviewed the following hands-on activities found in your text: 4A, 5A, 5B, 5D and 5E (from Chapters 4 and 5). These activities will assist you with your Data Transmission assignment this week.
Review the TCP/IP example (Figure 5-20) at the end of Chapter 5. Assume Bob is using client computer 22.214.171.124 in Building B, as shown in the figure. Bob requests a web site, www.anyaddress.com, that is rather large from a server situated in Building A. Assume that the client computer has just been powered on and, therefore, is unaware of any addresses (beside the ones in its own configuration table) and that the gateways and all web servers know the addresses to all of the network layers and data link layers.
For your paper,

Evaluate the various models of data communication and describe how the messages will be transmitted through the network.
