U n i t 3 P r o j e c t | 2 Your project for this Unit has three parts that are listed below. Required Deliverables: Part I: Complete the review questions: a. Static Routing is a technique in which a network administrator programs a router to use specific paths between nodes. b. True or False: Bridges are protocol independent. c. True or TRUE : Repeaters operate in the Physical layer of the OSI model. d. Firmware is a set of data or instructions that has been saved to a ROM. e. FALSE or False: A NIC has no room for a transceiver.

U n i t 3 P r o j e c t | 3 Part II: Create a chart to compare and contrast hubs, switches, routers, and bridges DEVICE DESCRIPTION FUNCTION REQUIREMENTS TO SET UP REQUIREMENTS TO MAINTAIN HUB An electronic device that connects many computers together to form a single computer network. Hubs classify as Layer 1 devices in the OSI model. Three different types: passive hubs, active hubs and intelligent hubs. Passive ethernet hubs don't boost signals passed through them and, as a result, have no need of an external power source. Active hubs actually boost signals carried through them, allowing connections to be achieved over longer distances but requiring a power source to do so. Intelligent hubs boost signals as active hubs do, but also offer error detection for the data packets that they transfer, which prevents some of the data corruption that can occur within the hub. An ethernet hub allows multiple computers to access a computer network from a single point. Instead of each computer requiring its own Ethernet access to a network router, the hub becomes a go-between where computers can plug in without accessing the router directly. The hub also creates a sub-branch of
