When a network uses the 802.11 standard, it is said to be a _____________. WI-fi or wireless
Establishing a unique__________ or network name helps ensure that only wireless network devices configured similarly are permitted access to network. SSID(Service set identifier)
Of the several wireless encryption protocols, _______ is the least secure. WEP(Wired equivalent privacy)
Of the two different spread-spectrum broadcasting methods, ____________ sends data out on different frequencies at the same time and, therefore, uses considerably more bandwidth. DSSS(Direct-sequence spread spectrum)
WPA uses________ to encrypt data whereas WPA2 uses the more secure ___________. 1. Temporal key integrity protocol(Tkip) 2. Advanced encryption standard(AES).
______________ allows devices on 802.11n networks to make multiple simultaneous connections, allowing for a theoretical throughput of 600 Mbps. Multiple in/multiple out(MIMO)
802.11 implements ____________, which proactively avoids network packet collisions rather than simply detecting them when they occur. CSMA/CA
Connecting two WI-Fi computers through a WAP uses ____________, whereas connecting the two wirelessly together directly uses ________________. infrastructure mode and post hic mode
Some 802.11g and all 802.11n devices enable _____________ to use two channels at the same time for transmission. Channel bonding
When you want to extend a wireless network, simply add another ____________. WAP
The 802.11 standard defines three different spread-spectrum broadcasting methods ___________.... 1. Direct sequence spread spectrum(dsss) 2. frequency hopping spread spectrum(fhss) 3. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing(Ofdm)
The 802.11 standard defines two methods of collision avoidance. 1. Distributed coordination function(DFC) and 2. Point coordination function(pcf)
802.11a has what speed and range? 802.11b has what speed and range? 802.11g has what speed and range? 802.11n has what speed and range? 802.11a has a speed of 54 Mbps and range of 150 feet. 802.11b has a speed of 11 Mbps and range of 300 feet. 802.11g has a speed of 54 Mbps and range of 300 feet. 802.11n has a speed of 100 Mbps and range of 300 feet.
The __________________defines the most basic infrastructure mode network. Basic service set identifier(BSSID)
What is a SSID? a ssid is a 32 bit identification string that's inserted into the header of each frame processed by a wap. Every wi-fi device must share the same ssid to communicate in a single network.
