Q: Ethernet Cabling Pinouts
#CCENT test takers sometimes struggle with going from the basic idea of a crossover cable, to looking at a network diagram and deciding which types of cable pinouts to use for each link. Today’s post adds to the practice. As usual, feel free to comment, but I’ll defer comment yes/no about your answer until the answer post is up (which will be linked at the bottom of this post). Thanks!
The Figure shows a small network, with several types of devices. The network has all the correct cabling installed, and the correct configuration, so that all the PCs in the figure can communicate, as proven by their ability to successfully ping each other.
The numbers in the figure simply provide a way for the questions to reference the various parts of the figure. Use the information above when answering the following question:
Question: Each answer lists two links based on the reference numbers in the figure. Which answers list at least one link number for a link that should use crossover cabling pinouts?
A. 1, 2
B. 3, 4
