Why is it not desirable to use Logical Link Control (LLC) and Sub-Network Access Protocol (SNAP) on Ethernet 802.3 frames while carrying IP packets when it is often used for wireless networks?

  • If you want to be state of the art for 1970, you can. Modern ethernet has moved to a method with less overhead, because almost all networking is IP (v4 or v6), there's very little need for SNAP. – Ricky Beam May 17 at 19:17
