1. Routers operate at layer _____. LAN switches operate at layer _____. Ethernet hubs operate at layer _____. Word processing operates at layer _____.


Routers operate at layer 3. LAN switches operate at layer 2. Ethernet hubs operate at layer 1. Word processing applications communicate to the Application layer interface, but do not operate at layer 7, so the answer would be none.

2. What VTP mode allows you to change VLAN information on the switch?


Only in server mode can you change VTP information on a switch.

3. If an Ethernet port on a router were assigned an IP address of, what would be the valid subnet address of this host?


A /25 mask is Used with a Class B network, the third and fourth octets are used for subnetting with a total of 9 subnet bits, 8 bits in the third octet and 1 bit in the fourth octet. Since there is only 1 bit in the fourth octet, the bit is either off or on-which is a value of 0 or 128. The host in the question is in the 0 subnet, which has a broadcast address of 127 since 128 is the next subnet.

You need to allow one host to be permitted to attach dynamically to each switch interface. Which two commands must you configure on your catalyst switch to meet this policy?

Switch(config-if)# ip access-group 10
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security maximum 1
Switch(config)# access-list 10 permit ip host 1
Switch(config-if)# switchport port-security violation shutdown
Switch(config)# mac-address-table secure


The switchport port-security is an important command, and it's super easy with the CNA; however, from the CLI, you can set the maximum number of MAC addresses allowed into the port, and then set the penalty if this maximum has been passed.

5. Which of the following is private IP address?


Class A private address range is through Class B private address range is through, and Class C private address range is through

Which configuration command must be in effect to allow the use of 8 subnets if the Class C subnet mask is


A Class C subnet mask of is 3 bits on and 5 bits off (11100000) and provides 8 subnets, each with 30 hosts. However, if the command ip subnet-zero is not used, then only 6 subnets would be available for use.

7. Which command will show you whether a DTE or a DCE cable is plugged into serial 0?


The show controllers serial 0 command will show you whether either a DTE or DCE cable is connected to the interface. If it is a DCE connection, you need to add clocking with the clock rate command.

8. What router command allows you to determine whether an IP access list is enabled on a particular interface?


Only the show ip interface command will tell you which interfaces have access lists applied. show access-lists will not show you which interfaces have an access list applied.

9. Which command will display the CHAP authentication process as it occurs between two routers in the network?


The command debug ppp authentication will show you the authentication process that PPP uses between point-to-point connections.

10. Which command displays the configuration register setting?


The show version command provides you with the current configuration register setting.

11. The network address of provides how many subnets and hosts?


A CIDR address of /19 is This is a Class B address, so that is only 3 subnet bits, but it provides 13 host bits, or 8 subnets, each with 8,190 hosts.

12.   Which protocol does DHCP use at the Transport layer


User Datagram Protocol is a connection network service at the Transport layer, and DHCP uses this connectionless service.

IGRP uses which of the following as default parameters for finding the best path to a remote network?

Hop count
Cumulative interface delay
Path bandwidth value


IGRP uses bandwidth and delay of the line, by default, to determine the best path to a remote network. Delay of the line can sometimes be called the cumulative interface delay.

Which two statements describe the IP address

The subnet address is
The lowest host address in the subnet is
The last valid host address in the subnet is
The broadcast address of the subnet is


The mask (/23) used with a Class A address means that there are 15 subnet bits and 9 host bits. The block size in the third octet is 2 (256 - 254). So this makes the subnets in the interesting octet 0, 2, 4, 6, etc., all the way to 254. The host is in the 2.0 subnet. The next subnet is 4.0, so the broadcast address for the 2.0 subnet is 3.255. The valid host addresses are 2.1 through 3.254.

Your router has the following IP address on Ethernet0: Which of the following can be valid host IDs on the LAN interface attached to the router?


The router's IP address on the E0 interface is, which is This makes the third octet a block size of 2. The router's interface is in the 2.0 subnet, and the broadcast address is 3.255 because the next subnet is 4.0. The valid host range is 2.1 through 3.254. The router is using the first valid host address in the range.

If you wanted administrators to see a message when logging into the router, which command would you use?


The typical banner is a message of the day (MOTD) and is set by using the global configuration mode command banner motd.

Which of the following types of connections can use full duplex?

Hub to hub
Switch to switch
Host to host
Switch to hub
Switch to hostwing types of connections can use full duplex?


Hubs cannot run full-duplex Ethernet. Full duplex must be used on a point-to-point connection between two devices capable of running full duplex. Switches and hosts can run full duplex between each other, but a hub can never run full duplex.

18. Which of the following statements are true regarding the command ip route
  1. The command is used to establish a static route.
  2. The default administrative distance is used.
  3. The command is used to configure the default route.
  4. The subnet mask for the source address is


The debug ip rip command is used to show the Internet Protocol (IP) Routing Information Protocol (RIP) updates being sent and received on the router.

19.      Which of the following is true regarding RIPv2?


RIPv2 is pretty much just like RIPv1. It has the same administrative distance and timers and is configured just like RIPv1.

What is the maximum data rate for the 802.11a standard?


The IEEE 802.11a standard provides a maximum data rate of up to 54Mbps.

21. What is the frequency range of the IEEE 802.11a standard?


The IEEE 802.11a standard runs in the 5GHz RF range.

22. You want to run the new 802.1w on your switches. Which of the following would enable this protocol?


802.1w is the also called Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. It is not enabled by default on Cisco switches, but it is a better STP to run since it has all the fixes that the Cisco extensions provide with 802.1d.

23. Which of the following is true regarding VTP?


All Cisco switches are VTP servers by default. No other VTP information is configured on a Cisco switch by default. You must set the VTP domain name on all switches to be the same domain name or they will not share the VTP database.

24. What is the address range of a Class B network address in binary?


The range of a Class B network address is 128-191. This makes our binary range 10xxxxxx.

25. Which of the following commands sets a trunk port on a 2960 switch?


To set a switch port to trunk mode, which allows all VLAN information to pass down the link, use the switchport mode trunk command.

Your switch has a port status LED that is alternating between green and amber. What could this indicate?


When you connect to a switch port, at first the link lights are orange/amber, and then they turn green, indicating normal operation. If the link light is blinking, you have a problem.

27. What is the maximum number of IP addresses that can be assigned to hosts on a local subnet that uses the subnet mask?


A /27 ( is 3 bits on and 5 bits off. This provides 8 subnets, each with 30 hosts. Does it matter if this mask is used with a Class A, B, or C network address? Not at all. The number of host bits would never change.

If you use either Telnet or FTP, which is the highest layer you are using to transmit data?


Both FTP and Telnet use TCP at the Transport layer; however, they both are Application layer protocols, so the Application layer is the best answer.

29. A default Frame Relay WAN is classified as what type of physical network?


Frame Relay, by default, is a non-broadcast multi-access (NBMA) network, which means that broadcasts, such as RIP updates, will not be forwarded across the link by default.

You type the following command into the router and receive the following output:

Router#show serial 0/0
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.
Why was this error message displayed?


You can view the interface statistics from user mode, but the command is show interface serial 0/0.
