1 What are two benefits of wireless networking over wired networking? (Choose two.) speed security mobility reduced installation time allows users to share more resources not susceptible to interference from other devices 2 Which statement is true concerning wireless bridges? connects two networks with a wireless link stationary device that connects to a wireless LAN allows wireless clients to connect to a wired network increases the strength of a wireless signal 3 Complete the following sentence: WEP is used to ______ , and EAP is used to _____ wireless networks. encrypt; authenticate users on filter traffic; select the operating frequency for identify the wireless network; compress data on create the smallest wireless network; limit the number of users on 4 What term describes the encoding of wireless data to prevent intercepted data from being read by a hacker? address filtering authentication broadcasting

encryption passphrase encoding 5 Why is security so important in wireless networks? Wireless networks are typically slower than wired networks. Televisions and other devices can interfere with wireless signals. Wireless networks broadcast data over a medium that allows easy access. Environmental factors such as thunderstorms can affect wireless networks. 6 What type of authentication does an access point use by default? Open PSK WEP EAP 7 What access-point feature allows a network administrator to define what type of data can enter the wireless network? encryption hacking block traffic filtering MAC address filtering authentication 8 Which WLAN component is commonly referred to as an STA? cell antenna access point wireless bridge wireless client 9 What does the Wi-Fi logo indicate about a wireless device? IEEE has approved the device. The device is interoperable with all other wireless standards. The device is interoperable with other devices of the same standard that also display the Wi-Fi logo. The device is backwards compatible with all previous wireless standards. 10 A technician has been asked to provide wireless connectivity to the wired Ethernet network of a building. Which three factors affect the number of access points needed? (Choose three.) the size of the building the number of solid interior walls in the building the presence of microwave ovens in several offices the encryption method used on the wireless network the use of both Windows and Appletalk operating systems the use of shortwave or infrared on the AP 11 Which two statements about a service set identifier (SSID) are true? (Choose two.) tells a wireless device to which WLAN it belongs consists of a 32-character string and is not case sensitive responsible for determining the signal strength

all wireless devices on the same WLAN must have the same SSID used to encrypt data sent across the wireless network 12 Which statement is true concerning an ad-hoc wireless network? created by connecting wireless clients in a peer-to-peer network created by connecting wireless clients to a single, centralized AP created by connecting multiple wireless basic service sets through a distribution system created by connecting wireless clients to a wired network using an ISR 13 Why is IEEE 802.11 wireless technology able to transmit further distances than Bluetooth technology? transmits at much lower frequencies has higher power output transmits at much higher frequencies uses better encryption methods 14 Which statement is true about open authentication when it is enabled on an access point? requires no authentication uses a 64-bit encryption algorithm requires the use of an authentication server requires a mutually agreed upon password Showing 1 of 2 Close Window <Prev Page: Next>
