TSS feedback: How does internet work exactly

  1. How does internet work exactly (3 messages)

    Hi,
    i keep surfing the internet everyday.but, i would like to clearly know how the internet works exactly,what protocols are used for what purpose,how the data first goes to an ISP and then to gateway and so on and also in which form the data is transfered(analog or digital).and also what exactly does a modem do.if anybody can give me a technically clear idea about all this it would be very much helpful to me.
    thanks.

        May be you dont know the answer yourself...always try and help and never discourage anyone. That is a hallmark of a mature developer.
