Is there a "reading packet captures for dummies" anywhere? I just do not seem to understand a few things.

I would like to view images moving across the network as well as know how to decrypt and/or reassemble (for viewing) packet bytes.

Some of the wiki pages and tutorials just seem like mumbo jumbo to me.

Appreciate any help

You could look at Wireshark University or The TCP/IP Guide for instance.
