6 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. connects two or more LANs.
    When a frame arrives, software in the bridge extracts the frame header and looks it up in a table to see where to send the frame.
    - different line cards for different technologies, Ethernet, FDDI etc.
    - each line has its own collision domain.
  2. - straight out of the box, no security configured at all.
    - WAPs are usually configured to broadcast their presence.
    - each wireless network node and access point needs the same SSID.
    - could choose not to broadcast SSID.
    - Also could implement MAC filtering.
  3. - available in a range of mobile devices.
    - operates in both ad-hoc mode and infrastructure mode.
    - by default security is disabled but does have three security modes, ranging from full data encryption to integrity control.
    - only authenticates devices, not users.
    - vulnerable to buffer over flow.
  4. - developed before 802.11a.
    - data throughput of up to 11Mbps.
    - most widely used standard; as a result the frequency is crowded; might run into interference from other wireless devices.
    - networks secured through use of WPA and WEP.
    - 2.4 ghz
  5. - used for router-to-router traffic, and home user to ISP traffic.
    - handle error detection.
    - allows IP addresses to be negotiated.
    - so used in dial up it will set-up the connection with ISP and negotiate an IP address.
    - replaced SLIP in many uses.
  6. - needs to establish an end to end path before transmission.
    - analogue networks.
    - ISDN
    - PPP

6 True/False Questions

  1. 802.11a- operates in different frequency range - 5 GHZ.
    - less prone to interference.
    - greater speeds.
    - not as widely used.

          

  2. Main task of the data link layertransform raw transmission facility into a line that appears free of undetected errors to the network layer.
    Accomplishes this by having the sender break up the input into frames, and transmit them sequentially. If the service is reliable, the receiver confirms the correct receipt of each frame.

          

  3. Unicast- associated with point-to-point networks.
    - point to point transmission with one sender and one receiver.

          

  4. ARPdata link layer does not understand IP addresses.
    ARP sends out request, who owns IP address? this is used to build table of MAC 48 bit addresses to IP addresses.
    - defined in RFC 826.
    - vulnerable to ARP poisening ( adding bogus entries to ARP cache).

    - each line has its own collision domain.

    - defined in RFC 826.
    - vulnerable to ARP poisening ( adding bogus entries to ARP cache).
