It's very detailed. TCP and IPX are protocals that sort your data into a certain pattern so that you can transmit it over your line (phone, cable, ethernet, etc). The receiver than recongnized this specific pattern and can re-assemble the data back into it's original format. TCP and IPX are just types of patterns that are used to send data. TCP is used for your internet connection and your LAN. IPX is an older protocol that is dying out. It is still used in some video game interfaces. There is much more detail in the the exact way they organize data. I'm sure there are reports on this subject you can find on Google.
