I have significantly updated the Network Stack section of the wiki:

http://wiki.osdev.org/Network_Stack

Comments and questions more than welcome.

You have made a mistake on the TCP connection part, which I have now fixed. It's the server that sends SYN+ACK in response to the client's SYN, and the client then replies ACK. It does not send another SYN.

I also removed the statement that said that the initial SYN/ACK packets can not contain a payload, and added a note that it is technically possible, just not very common.

I just now noticed that there are no "Network" links on the Expanded Main Page. On the Categorized Main Page, the OS Theory category is being shown, which contains all of the network stuff, but that category is not on the Expanded Main Page.

Can one of the admins add this category to the Expanded Main Page?

Thx.

That's cool but; 70% of articles on the wiki are marked as "stubs" and "in work" in long year row. Everyone shall stop writing new articles and start improving unfinished articles.

Why don't you start? Improve an article about a concept you know.
