@PowerCert Animated Videos: Very well explained – Many Thanks… I have a question though. From 5:28 onwards; how does the 2nd Router (middle one) in the video figure the data should be going to the one on it’s right side (in order to get into Blue network)? Why it did not try to send the data packet to the 2 other routers below it?
