    QUESTION NO: 145 A user is having intermittent problems connecting to their network shares. A network technician is able to determine that there is a problem within the network cabling in between the workstation and the switch. All other users are able to connect successfully to the network. Which of the following is the MOST likely cause?

    • A.

      Patch cable is a crossover cable instead of straight-through.

    • B.

      Cable is not punched down at the punch panel.

    • C.

      Cable has been cut somewhere within the wall.

    • D.

      Crosstalk and interference are occurring.

    Correct Answer
    D. Crosstalk and interference are occurring.
    Explanation
    The most likely cause for the intermittent problems connecting to the network shares is crosstalk and interference. Crosstalk occurs when signals from one cable interfere with signals on another cable, leading to data corruption or loss. Interference can be caused by electromagnetic interference (EMI) from nearby electrical devices or radio frequency interference (RFI) from sources like cell phones or wireless devices. In this case, since all other users are able to connect successfully, it suggests that the issue is specific to the user's network cabling rather than a larger network problem like a crossover cable or a cut cable.

    QUESTION NO: 149* A network technician is assigned the task of  connecting two switches in two different wiring closets. Which of the following cable types is the appropriate choice?

    • A.

      Crossover

    • B.

      Loopback

    • C.

      568A

    • D.

      Rollover

    Correct Answer
    A. Crossover
    Explanation
    A crossover cable is the appropriate choice for connecting two switches in different wiring closets. Unlike straight-through cables, which are used to connect devices of different types (e.g. switch to router), crossover cables are specifically designed to connect devices of the same type (e.g. switch to switch). Crossover cables have the transmit and receive wires crossed over, allowing the switches to communicate directly with each other. This enables them to exchange information and establish a network connection.

    • A.

      The domain controller is not responding

    • B.

      The DNS server is not resolving correctly

    • C.

      The DHCP server is not assigning correct IP addresses.

    • D.

      The file server is offline

    Correct Answer
    B. The DNS server is not resolving correctly
    Explanation
    The cause of the problem is that the DNS server is not resolving correctly. This means that the DNS server is not able to translate domain names into IP addresses, which is necessary for users to access network resources. As a result, users are only able to connect to network resources using the IP address. This indicates that there is an issue with the DNS server's functionality or configuration.
