Chapter 6 Installing a Physical Network

CHAPTER 6
Installing a Physical Network


The CompTIA Network+ Certification exam expects you to know how to

• 3.2 Categorize standard connector types based on network media: patch panel, 110 block

• 3.6 Given a scenario, troubleshoot common physical connectivity problems

• 3.7 Compare and contrast different LAN technologies: bonding

• 3.8 Identify components of wiring distribution

• 4.2 Given a scenario, use appropriate hardware tools to troubleshoot connectivity issues

 

To achieve these goals, you must be able to

• Recognize and describe the functions of basic components in a structured cabling system

• Explain the process of installing structured cable

• Install a network interface card

• Perform basic troubleshooting on a structured cable network


Armed with the knowledge of previous chapters, it’s time to start going about the business of actually constructing a physical network. This might seem easy; after all, the most basic network is nothing more than a switch with a number of cables snaking out to all of the PCs on the network (Figure 6-1).
