Module 3 Exam Answers
1. What are two advantages of using UTP cable in a networking environment? (Choose two.)
• is stiffer than STP
• is less expensive than fiber
• is easier to install than coaxial
• provides longer distances than coaxial provides
• is less susceptible to outside noise sources than fiber is
2. What are two advantages of using fiber-optic cabling instead of UTP? (Choose two.)
• lower cost
• easer to install
• allows longer distances
• less effected by external signals
• easier to terminate the cable ends
3. What is the difference between a wireless NIC and an Ethernet NIC?
• The Ethernet NIC operates at 100 Mbps, whereas a wireless NIC operates at 10 Mbps.
• The Ethernet NIC uses a PCI expansion slot, and a wireless NIC cannot use an expansion slot.
• The wireless NIC uses CSMA/CA, whereas a Ethernet NIC uses token passing as an access method.
• The wireless NIC associates to an access point, and an Ethernet NIC attaches to a hub or switch using a cable.
• The Ethernet NIC attaches to a hub or a switch using only fiber cabling, and a wireless NIC attaches to a wireless antenna using air as a network medium.
4. Which wireless standard operates in the 5 GHZ transmission range and is capable of 54 Mbps of data throughput?
5. A company is converting a cabled LAN to a wireless Ethernet LAN. What must be changed on every host on the network?
• No changes are required.
• Each host will require a new IP address.
• Each host will require an appropriate NIC or adapter.
• Each host will require that the operating system be upgraded.

8. Which Ethernet implementation requires the signal on the media to be boosted at a maximum distance of 100 meters?
9. When is a straight-through cable used in a network?
• when configuring a router
• when connecting a host to a host
• when connecting a switch to a router
• when connecting one switch to another switch
10. What type of cable is used to make an Ethernet connection between a host and a LAN switch?
11. Which of the following are used for data communication signals? (Choose three.)

• twisted pair cable
• T style connectors
• baseband transmission
• 10 gigabits per second data rate
• 10 megabits per second data
• decimal encoded data transmission
15. Which cable connectors are used to connect a cable from a router’s console port to a PC? (Choose two.)
