RFC1042, "Standard for the transmission of IP datagrams over IEEE 802 networks", February 1988

Section Frame Format says:

      The minimum packet size used with ARP is 24 octets, which is 20
      (ARP with 2 octet hardware addresses and 4 octet protocol
      addresses) + 8 (LLC+SNAP header) = 24 octets (not including the
      MAC header).

It should say:

      The minimum packet size used with ARP is 28 octets, which is 20
      (ARP with 2 octet hardware addresses and 4 octet protocol
      addresses) + 8 (LLC+SNAP header) = 28 octets (not including the
      MAC header).

Section Frame Format says:

      In typical situations, the packet size used with ARP is 32 octets,
      which is 28 (ARP with 6 octet hardware addresses and 4 octet
      protocol addresses) + 8 (LLC+SNAP header) = 32 octets (not
      including the MAC header).


It should say:

      In typical situations, the packet size used with ARP is 36 octets,
      which is 28 (ARP with 6 octet hardware addresses and 4 octet
      protocol addresses) + 8 (LLC+SNAP header) = 36 octets (not
      including the MAC header).
