Objectives:Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to:
• Correctly identify cables for use in the network.
• Physically cable a peer-to-peer and switched network.
• Verify basic connectivity on each network.
Task 1: Create a Peer-to-Peer Network:Step 1: Connect two workstations. Using the correct Ethernet cable, connect two workstations together. Connect one end of the cable to the NIC port on PC1 and the other end of the cable to PC2.
|PC Name||IP Address||Subnet Mask|
Task 2: Verify connectivity.Step 1: Use the ping command to verify that PC1 can reach PC2 and PC2 can reach PC1. From the PC1 command prompt, type ping 192.168.1.3. "
