unexpected frame
A valid frame that cannot be processed. The frame itself is perfectly legitimate. Its unexpected character is defined by two conditions: the specific type of frame and the state of the receiver. [T1.218-1991] The layer-2 protocol states define the proper sequence in which frames are expected to occur. The receiver will compare received frames with its own protocol state to determine whether or not a valid frame is unexpected. [T1.218-1991]
