      I think your main point of confusion is thinking things are a packet OR a frame. In practice pretty much all layer 3 frames are going to be wrapped in a layer 2 frame.

      If your computer sends off an HTTPS request, the HTTPS data gets wrapped in an IP packet with the destination of the web server. The IP packet gets wrapped in a frame with the destination mac of your router (which it learned through DHCP or ARP).

      Once it gets to the router, first it will see that it's the recipient of the frame. So it will strip off the layer 2 stuff and read the layer 3 packet and see the destination of the web server. It doesn't know where the web server is, but knows to send things to the ISP router if it doesn't know where they are.

      So it puts the IP packet into a new frame with the mac address of the ISP router as the destination and it's OWN mac address as the source mac address.

      The ISP routers repeats the same process until it arrives at the web server, which will receive a frame with it's own mac address as the destination and the source of the last hop. It'll strip away the layer 2 frame and read the IP packet and see that it's addressed for itself. Then it will look at the TCP port and send it to the correct one. From there the web server process the actual HTTPS data.

      >layer 3 ""switch""(a router)
      incoming ethernet frame
      checks crc if bad drops
      checks destination (is it to me or not to me) if not me drops
      checks ethertype (ignoring vlans and technically destination check happens at the same time as vlan check)
      if it is an upper layer it don't speak then drop ex: ipv6 packet but the router only speaks ipv4
      if all is good strip off the entire ethernet frame
      pass packet to next stage in pipeline or call l3 lookup
      for ipv4 check checksum if bad drop for ipv6 no checksum
      (ignoring option fields for now)
      do lookup on destination do I have a forwarding entry for this prefix if yes forward it if no drop it

      >layer 2 ethernet switch
      recieve frame
      check crc if bad drop
      check destination mac addr (if ethertype is x9100 x8100 x88a8 all are sometimes seen vlan ethertypes) and eth type at the same time for a vlan tag (if applicable)
      if no vlan tag and switch has forwarding entry then forward
      if no vlan tag and switch has no forwarding entry flood out all ports (excrpt ports that are in a specific vlan that this frame isn't)
      if vlan tag and no forwarding entry flood out all ports that participate in the vlan
      if vlan tag and forwarding entry forward as normal

      frame is never flooded out port it came in on ever

      l2 learning for forwarding entry behavior:
      frames come in on a port and you inspext the source mac address and map that mac address to that port/interface

      l3 learning for forwarding entry
      routing protocol (link state path vector distancr vector static connected etc) build route table, route table manager programs forwarding entries into forwarding table

      routing table is prefixes with next hop ip and a bunch of other blog info about a route, not useful for forwarding
      l3 forwarding table is prefix and exit interface (gigabit eth 1, tunnel0, wlan4, etc)

      this ignores some small things but is 90% of the process and 100% of what you would need for literally any test ever except maybe a ccie lab troubleshooting ipv4 packet frag

        I don't see any beneficial purpose to be had beyond a weak and weird flex on certs he holds. he didn't obtain the cert because he saw a way to better the IT field, he sought out the cert because his employment required it which in my view isn't shit to brag about. this also proves his flex was more focused upon bragging about his income and tax bracket.
        as I said in my initial reply, if you own a high level cert or a ton of them and aren't doing anything to better the field then you're literally taking up space and are the epitome of a wage cuck.

          As for your specific question in

          I don't know what happens how a layer 3 switch handles layer 2 frames nor how a layer 2 switch handles a layer 3 packet.

          I'm pretty sure the SVI (ip address for the vlan) has it's own mac address. So the switches own mac address would look something like this.

          Physical Interfaces
          -----------------------------
          int gi0/1 123:456
          int gi0/2 789:abc
          host1 def:123
          host2 456:789

          SVI / IP
          ------------------------------
          192.168.1.1 abc:def

          In this case host 1 and 2 are random devices connected to the switch. Let's say on interface 0/1 0/2 respectively.

          If host1 wants to send something to host2, it'll find it's IP and mac address through ARP. Then it will create an IP packet and put that inside a frame with it's own mac (def:123) as the source and the mac of host2 (456:789) as the destination and send this frame down the pipe to the switch on int 0/1. Note that the frame is address to host2, not int 0/1.

          int 0/1 will receive the frame and see that it is not addressed to itself. It will then look up in the mac table where the mac is connected and then send the frame out of int 0/2. The frame will not be rewritten. It will arrive at host2 with the source of host1 and the destination of host2.

          For routing, when host1 wants to send a packet to google. The IP packet will be wrapped in a frame address from host1 to the SVI (abc:def). When the switch receives it, it'll then "forward" it to the "router". The switch will then process it like a router and determine to send it out an interface. At which point it will rewrap the packet in a new frame address to the next router with the source of the SVI's mac (abc:def).

Fixing scammers is more of an awareness deal- frickers just straight up call people and con them, or set up brand new domains for scareware every week. At the moment, there's no good solution for that.
            Past that, your average person is not going to want to deal with DNS sinkholes and VPN connections. They'll just find it annoying. Sad reality, but there's not a whole lot you can do otherwise.

          a layer 3 device that routes packets is the endpoint for the layer 2 frame and then the frame is stripped off and is no longer useful. The destination in the layer 3 header is used for forwarding.

          In a layer 2 device the layer 2 endpoint is not the device itself and so the device is forwarding based on the destination in the layer 2 header. It is not stripped off since it contains information about who is talking.

          If you get into actual installations as a cable puller I doubt you will get anywhere beyond being a network technician in the field and cap out at 80k. And then depending on the company they will work you to the bone especially if they are teamsters. AT&T is horrible and the old guys BEG to work in the fiber splicing trucks instead of getting rained on all day. But the guys who go into that come from construction or other blue collar jobs and think 80k is big money. They also work past when they are supposed to end and don't get to spend time with their families to earn the 'big bucks.' And if you escape the large companies and go to work for a smaller telco you can expect to make like $65k in return for actually going home at the end of the day and not working on thanksgiving or christmas.

    Because compTIA certs mean very little for any mid-senior level blue team gig. They do NOT certify that you can actually perform in a job.

        Sure! The sec+ isn't advanced by any stretch, and mostly covers a lot of non-technical stuff, but assuming one takes that cert, gets a job, and actively learns in their role, they'll do great in the long-term.

        How's the CCNA then?

        This is good to have, but like CompTIA it doesn't necessarily certify that you can DO a job. If you can take that information, and put it all together in a security context, you'll do great in that field. Great info to have for any generalized IT job, too. Just be sure to actually comprehend what you're learning and understanding what it'd mean for whatever role you want!

        I'm taking Security+ in July. Already have the Network+ and the A+. I know it's probably hopium I'm huffing going for this since I'm a 29 year old college student, and I am scared that no one will want to hire a late-bloomer in their career. My current job doesn't have any upward mobility, and I don't want to go back to retail management either.

        Depends on the organization. Whatever you do, don't go working for BitDefender. They're an absolute shitshow atm from what I hear. Just don't expect to be a senior anything starting out, and nobody will care. I work with a former schoolteacher of 15+ years who made a serious career transition, and she's doing just fine.

        All of you, just be cognizant of the fact that a lot of these certs represent the VERY BASICS of the field. Take those certs, get a job, and be prepared for a life of endless learning, because technology has and will continue to move FAST. Speaking here as a security analyst whose CySA+ quickly got rendered moot by work experience. Nobody cares I have a certification when I've got glowing references and years of experience DOING the job at a large MSSP.

      As outstanding as those certifications are, I am inclined to believe a good number of IQfy anons could never acquire the A+ certification.

    I already have CISSP 🙂
    Ironically I plan on doing that bullshit cyber security master's from WGU in the future so I'll probably end up getting CASP+ anyway.

    I have Linux+, Network+ and A+. This yielded three stackable certs as well. Feels good. Out of the three, Network+ was the worst, solely because of the time I spent teaching myself how to quickly subnet in my head. Wasted 10 days of my life developing a skill that is basically useless outside of CompTIA and Cisco exams.

      Subnetting can be useful at home, but I feel ya. Apparently the newer test comes out in July, so maybe some more relevant stuff will be on it

        I plan on doing Cloud+ next year to renew all three, and to get another cert under my belt, because I'm getting addicted to accumulating wallet cards, badges and acronyms.

      Is subnetting really that hard? I figured it out in like 30 minutes, but I've heard a lot of people say subnetting is the most difficult part of the exam, and every time I see it mentioned again I get worried I am completely misunderstanding it.
      I'm taking Network+ soon, don't have it scheduled yet though.

        Don't be moronic, subnetting is brainlet tier
