So just how does the internet work?

The Internet is amazing. It allows us to communicate instantly, search
for and find information on nearly anything, stay abreast of current
events and, of course, watch the latest cute animal video. But how does
it actually work? Made up of servers (the machines) and clients (the
users), the Internet uses a common language, called a protocol suite, to
help devices “talk” with each other via telephone wires and satellites.
Every device that connects to the Internet, be it a laptop, a
smartphone or a gaming system, has an Internet Protocol, or IP, address.
Using these addresses and the protocol suite, the Internet lets users
upload, download, share and stream little packets of information. This
infographic illustrates just how the Internet sends these packets
from one place to another.
