The ring is broken, so no devices can communicate.
Only that workstation loses its ability to communicate.
That workstation and the device it's connected to lose communication with the rest of the network.
No devices can communicate because there are now two unterminated network segments.
Where to place the server
Whose computer is least busy and can act as the server
The security associated with such a network
Having enough peers to support creating such a network
When a centralized office needs to communicate with many branch offices
When a full mesh of WAN links is in place
When multiple offices are daisy-chained to one another in a line
When there are only two nodes in the network to be connected
Ten buildings interconnected by Ethernet connections over fiber-optic cabling
Ten routers interconnected by frame-relay circuits
Two routers interconnected with a T1 circuit
A computer connected to another computer so they can share resources
When a port on the central concentrating device fails, the attached end device loses connectivity to the rest of the network.
When the central concentrating device experiences a complete failure, all attached devices lose connectivity to the rest of the network.
In a star topology, a more expensive type of host must be used when compared to the host used when implementing a physical bus.
It is more difficult to add stations and troubleshoot than with other topologies.
WANs need a special type of router port.
WANs cover larger geographical areas.
WANs can utilize either private or public data transport.
All of the above.
Virtual processor network
Virtual passive network
Virtual private network
Variable-length private network
None of the above
All of the above
Use static IP addresses
Add more hubs
Implement more switches
Ease of installation
Ease of maintenance
