Q. The maximum window size for data transmission using the selective reject protocol with n-bit frame sequence number is:

Q. In a network of LANs connected by bridges, packets are sent from one LAN to another through intermediate bridges. Since more than one path may exist between two LANs, packets may have to be routed through multiple bridges. Why is spanning tree algorithm used for bridge-routing?
Q. In Ethernet when Manchester encoding is used, the bit rate is:

Q. Which of the following system calls results in the sending of SYN packets?
Q. In a packet switching network, packets are routed from source to destination along a single path having two intermediate nodes. If the message size is 24 bytes and each packet contains a header of 3 bytes, then the optimum packet size is:
Q. In the slow start phase of the TCP congestion control algorithm, the size of the congestion window
