  1. A network interface card (NIC) provides which of the following?
    1.The link between the house and the phone company.
    2.The link between two servers.
    3.The interface between a computer and a peripheral device.
    4.The link between the physical hardware of a network and a computer. 
    5.The interface between a server and a client.
    The link between the physical hardware of a network and a computer.
  2. Which of the following are advantages of using PCI NICs?
    1.Low cost, high performance, and ease of use.
    2.Enhanced reliability, high performance, and ease of use.
    3.Multiple channels, high performance, enhanced reliability.
    4.Increased flexibility, ease of use, increased adaptability.
    5.Superior reliability, low cost, and ease of use.

    2. 802.11a is immune from the "near/far" problem.
    3. They each use a different method of spread spectrum transmission. 
    4. Frequency response characteristics are not the same.
    They each use a different method of spread spectrum transmission.
  7. Which of the following is
    the first action you should take when planning cable installations?
    1. Decide on the cable type to be used.
    2. Determine the money available for the installation.
    3. Identify the type of equipment to be used.
    4. Evaluate any expansion plans.
