What is the real meaning of packet loss? What causes it? How can I fix it? What happens in the sequence of packet loss? Could someone tell me or link an article? Very curious about all this. Thanks!

  1. Packet loss occurs when one or more packets of data travelling across a computer network fail to reach their destination. Rationale[edit] The Internet Protocol (IP) is designed as a best-effort delivery service, with the intention of keeping the logic routers must implement as simple as possible.

This will most likely be the most comprehensive description of what you are trying to learn as just Packet loss is one small piece of the entire TCP/IP stack as a whole.

Either find Ebooks like CCNA ICND 1 or Network +. Or this is a great little wiki article of the OSI & TCP/IP Networking Stacks.
