    Packets get lost all the time on networks. The most common cause is network congestion, but another common cause is interference over a wireless connection. This is why TCP is such a popular protocol -- it has the capability for the sender to resend packets that were not received by the destination.

    You only need to worry about packet loss when you use a protocol like UDP which does not guarantee delivery of packets.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    This is not the valid answer..If you really know the answer then you can list out some of the scenarios ....By the way for your kind information there is sufficient space available here...
