Only the workstation attached to the failed link.-an ethernet network uses the star topology in which every node is connected to a central distribution device such as a hub or switch. a failure of any node on this network will only affect the node that is down.incorrect answers:a: an ethernet network uses the star topology in which every node is connected to a central distribution device such as a hub or switch. a failure of a link to any node on this network will only affect that node.b: the bus topology has no fault tolerance. a single failure in these networks will bring the entire network down.d: a full-mesh network has multiple links per host and is fault tolerant. a failure of any single link will not affect the network.references:david groth and toby skandier, network+ study guide (4th edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2005, pp. 10-11, 12, 52.david groth, network+ study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 11-12, 23.david groth and dan newland, a+ complete study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 313-314.
