B. Add a layer 3 switch and create a VLAN.
C. Add a bridge between two switches.
D. Add a firewall and implement proper ACL.

Explanation:
We can limit the amount of broadcast traffic on a switched network by dividing the computers into logical network segments called VLANs.
A virtual local area network (VLAN) is a logical group of computers that appear to be on the same LAN even if they are on separate IP subnets. These logical subnets are configured in the network switches. Each VLAN is a broadcast domain meaning that only computers within the same VLAN will receive broadcast traffic.
To allow different segments (VLAN) to communicate with each other, a router is required to establish a connection between the systems. We can use a network router to route between the VLANs or we can use a `Layer 3′ switch. Unlike layer 2 switches that can only read the contents of the data-link layer protocol header in the packets they process, layer 3 switches can read the (IP) addresses in the network layer protocol header as well.

Answer: Cable certifier – incorrectly crimped cable

Explanation:
A Cable Certifier provides “Pass” or “Fail” information in accordance with industry standards but can also show detailed information when a “Fail” occurs. This includes shorts, the wire pairs involved and the distance to the short. When a short is identified, at the full length of the cable it means the cable has not been crimped correctly.

After you fix AP2, you must click on the switch, which will bring up the switch interface. Type in the two commands that they show there, to prove the fix. Do not worry that interface 4 is down, there is no interface 4 for you to do.

414. Lab Simulation
Wireless network users recently began experiencing speed and performance issues after access point 2 (AP2) was replaced due to faulty hardware.
The original network was installed according to a consultant’s specifications and has always worked without a problem.
You, a network technician, have been tasked with evaluating the situation and resolving the issues to improve both performance and connectivity.
Refer to the following diagram and perform any NECESSARY changes to the wireless and wired infrastructure by adjusting devices.
Note: Adjust the LEAST number of devices needed to fix the issue, all blue icons in the image are clickable.
When you feel the simulation is complete please select the Done button.

Answer:
– Change the speed and duplex settings on AP2 only to 100 and full.
– Change the mode to G on AP2
– Change the channel to 6 on AP2

Explanation:
Since we know that the network was running perfectly before replacing AP2 we should start by looking at this new device that was used to replace the old one. Here we see that the other AP’s
have hard coded the speed and duplex settings to 100/full, while AP2 is set to auto/auto.
Also, the other AP’s have been configured to use 802.11G, while AP2 is using 802.11B.
Finally the channel that AP2 is using overlaps with AP1 which can cause problems.
Channels 1, 6, and 11 are spaced far enough apart that they don’t overlap.
On a non-MIMO setup (i.e. 802.11 a, b, or g) you should always try to use channel 1, 6, or 11.
Since AP1 is using 1, and AP3 is using 11, AP2 should be using 6.

Alter accommodating each department, identify the unused portion of the subnet by responding to the question on the graphic.
All drop downs must be filled.
Instructions: When the simulation is complete, please select the Done button to submit.

All Networks have the range form /0 to/32

Answer:

Explanation:
Sales network-/26-This will provide up to 62 usable IP addresses (64-2 for subnet and broadcast IP)
HR network – /27-This will provide for up to 30 usable IP’s (32-2)
IT – /28-This will provide for up to 14 usable IP’s (16-2)
Finance – /26-Note that a /27 is 32 IP addresses but 2 of those are reserved for the network and
broadcast IP’s and can’t be used for hosts.
Marketing – /28
If we add up how many IP blocks are used that is 64+32+16+64+16=192.
A /24 contains 256 IP addresses, so 256-192=64.
So the last unused box should be a /26, which equates to 64 addresses

423. Lab Simulation
After recent changes to the pictured network, several users are unable to access the servers. Only PC1, PC2, PC3, and PC4 are configurable. You can only change the adapter configurations to each PC.

Answer:
On PC3, change the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0. When it is set to 255.255.255.128, then the PC with a .129 address will not be on the same subnet as the default gateway which is .1
On PC4, change the default gateway to 10.0.2.1. It has been incorrectly set as 10.1.2.1.
On this simulation, you will be asked to test connectivity after fixing the issues.
You MUST ping the other three computers on EACH computer (i.e. from PC1, ping PC2, PC3,
PC4, and from PC2, ping PC1, PC3 and PC4, etc)
