Q20: Manually translate the three MAC addresses in Q19 into 48-bit binary.
SECTION 3: START NETWORK CABLING BASED ON INSTRUCTIONS BELOW:
Complete the cabling between nodes as in Figure 1. If there are no serial ports necessary for WAN connections on the router, WAN cards (WICs) have to be installed. The network administrator decided to use the WIC-2T WAN card among many choices.
Install the WIC-2T WAN network cards to all available router slots.
Use following cabling to interconnect nodes.
LAN cabling: Use either copper straight-through or copper cross-over cabling.
Straight through cabling is used to connect different devices (ex. PC –switch, switch – router). Connecting similar devices (ex. switch – switch) needs cross-over cabling. Do NOT use the automatically choose connection type option. LAN links are shown in black.
WAN cabling: Serial lines should be used for the WAN connection. Choose the Serial DCE cable option that supports clocking (One end of the WAN connection needs to have clocking to regulate transmission speed). WAN links are shown in red.
Note: When wrong ports are chosen for cabling, there will be an error message “This cable cannot be connected to the port”. When cabling is correctly done, you should see two small dots in red on both ends of the cable. If you see the dot only on one end of the connection, the cabling is incorrect. The red dots between computers and switches change to green automatically after a while indicating readiness for message exchange. Meanwhile, you will find that any cabling that involves a router port will remain in red. This means that, although the physical connection has been completed, additional router configuration is necessary in order to exchange messages via the router port.
Completing the network cabling, therefore, does not mean that end devices (PC stations and servers) can communicate because routers have not been configured. Switches do not need additional configuration to enable the switch port function. Once cabling is complete, answer following questions:
