Efficient Acknowledgement of Data Packets

Method of Acknowledging Receipt of Data Packets

This invention is an efficient method of reassembling, acknowledging, and transmitting data packets by accounting for the received packets in groups rather than individually. The groups may be comprised of received data packets or gaps in the received data packets. Both groupings provide a more efficient way of processing data packets.
