I am new here and hope I can get some help!
Recently I have been learning the Physical Layer PHY specifications of IEEE.802.11 i.e the WLAN standards. A tutorial I have used defines the general PHY packet structure that has a Long training field, short training field, signal field, data field.
It also defines three different types of frames: Management, Control and Data frames. And that each frame consists of MAC header, payload and frame check sequence. One example of frame is beacon frame.
Confusion is, what is the difference between packet and frame? I am totally confused. Does anyone have a clear explanation and understand of each.
