can a packet traverse without routers?

By shanx24 ·
i need information on the exact procedure as to how does a packet travel within a subnet or to different subnet once it is placed on Ethernet . is it possible for the packets to traverse without being directed by routers? it would be great if you can give a real-time related i.e a practical answer rather than a logical answer.
