2. What is Bandwidth?
Every line has an upper limit and a lower limit on the frequency of signals it can carry. This
limited range is called the bandwidth.
3. What is the difference between physical address and logical address?
Simply physical address known as hardware address. IP address is known as logical address.
Physical address is used for identify the PC on network and IP is used for identify the network
on the PC mac address 48 bit address IP address 32 bit addresses.
4. If you are given the IP address can u tell how many computer scan be connected?What do
you look at?
Depending on the address given (Class A, Class B, or Class C) you can determine how many
hosts are available. This is also subject to whether the address is classless or classful. If it is
classful the a Class C address can have 254 valid hosts, a Class B can have 64,534 and a Class
A can allow over 16 million hosts!
5. Expand the following : Wi-Fi, wlan, WiMAX, Wan, WAP.
Wifi – Wireless Fidelity
Wlan – Wireless LAN
WiMAX - Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access
Wan – wide area network
WAP – Wireless Access Protocol
6. What is anonymous ftp? Why is it used?
Anonymous FTP enables users to connect to a host without using a valid login and password.
Usually, anonymous FTP uses a login called anonymous or guest, with the password usually
requesting the user's ID for tracking purposes only. Anonymous FTP is used to enable a large
number of users to access files on the host without having to go to the trouble of setting up
logins for them all. Anonymous FTP systems usually have strict controls over the areas an
anonymous user can access.
7. Name the layer to which following things are related.
(a) raw bits sending
(b) encryption
(c) making two networks compatible to communicate
(d) electronic mail, http
(e) session control
8. You have an IP of with a subnet mask of 7 bits. How many hosts and subnets
are possible?
(a) 126 hosts and 510 subnets
(b) 128 subnets and 512 hosts
(c) 510 hosts and 126 subnets
(d) 512 subnets and 128 hosts
Correct answer: C
