how does a private IP address proxy server compare to a profile and domain profile. The level of protection that Vista uses for Windows Firewall when it recognizes the computer is connected to a private network that is not part of a domain. This level offers moderate protection.

what does a repeater do to network signals? A device that amplifies signals on a network so they can be transmitted further down the line.
What is ring topology? A network topology in which the nodes in the network form a ring.
What is a shielded twisted pair (STP) cable? A cable that is made of one or more twisted pairs of wires and is surrounded by a metal shield.
How is a star bus topology a physical star? A LAN that uses a logical buss design, making a physical star.
How is a star ring topology arranged as a star? A topology that is arranged in a star formation. A Token Ring is a good example of this.
What does star topology have to do with a central hub? A LAN in which all the devices are connected to a central hub.
What does a static IP address have to do with a workstation? An IP address permanently assigned to a workstation.
What kind of 4 number group is a subnet mask? A group of four numbers (dotted decimal numbers) that tell TCP/IP if a remote computer is on the same or a different network

How does a wireless LAN (WLAN)not use cables? A type of LAN that does not use wires or cables to create connections, but instead transmits data over radio or infrared waves
What does WPA (WiFi Protected Access)have to do with TKIP? A data encryption method for wireless networks that use the TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) encryption method and the encryption keys are changed at set intervals while the wireless LAN is in use.
What does WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access 2)have to do with IEEE802.11? A data encryption standard compliant with the IEEE802.11i standard that uses the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) protocol. WPA2 is currently the strongest wireless encryption standard.
