Maybe you are looking at the wrong definition?

Medium can be too:
Quote:
The intervening substance through which sensory impressions are conveyed or physical forces are transmitted.
or
A particular form of storage material for computer files, such as magnetic tape or discs.

In the OSI Model, the medium is the lowest layer too. And it is correct


EDIT: I just had a look, in the English version the lowest it is called "Physical", in my study times (many years ago) and languages (Spanish / German) "medium" was used too


EDIT2:
Seeing the rest of the messages I have realized, that the one that has understood it wrong was me. D'Oh! | :doh:
Sorry Smile | :)
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
