Networking Essentials

Practice Skills Assessment

A few things to keep in mind while completing this activity:

1. Do not use the browser Back button or close or

reload any exam windows during the exam.
2. Do not close Packet Tracer when you are done. It will
close automatically. 
3. Click the Submit Assessment button in the browser
window to submit your work.

In this practice skills assessment, you will configure
the XYZ Company Network. You will configure a router
and enable remote management of a switch. You will also
configure a wireless networking device to provide
connectivity to a wireless LAN. Finally, you will configure
hosts to communicate on the wired and wireless LAN.

All IOS device configurations should be completed from a

direct terminal connection to the device console from a
host device.

For a full list of tasks, see below.

You will practice and be assessed on the following skills:

 Basic configuration of a router

 Router interface configuration
 Switch Virtual Interface (SVI) configuration
 Wireless network device configuration
 Wireless host configuration
 Wired host configuration
You will do the following on specific devices: 

Router RTR-1:

 Activate interfaces.
 Address interfaces.
 Configure privileged EXEC mode password.
 Protect configuration lines with passwords.
 Name the device.
 Configure MOTD banner.

Switch SW-1:

 Activate the VLAN 1 SVI.

 Address the VLAN 1 SVI.
 Configure SSH for remote access.

Wireless Network Device  AP-1: 

 Configure Internet interface addressing.

 Configure DHCP server.
 Configure the wireless network name.
 Configure basic wireless network security.

Host PC 1: 

 Configure IP addressing information.

 Configure default gateway address.

Host NetAdmin: 

 Connect to a router using the correct cable.

 Configure host addressing.

Wireless Laptop LTP-1:

 Configure the wireless network name (SSID).

 Configure the wireless authentication type.
 Configure the wireless pass phrase.

Addressing Table

Use the following addresses to configure the network.

Some addresses are preconfigured, and are provided for
reference purposes only. The address that is not provided
in the table should be determined by you as part of this

Device Interface Address Mask Gateway

G0/0 N/A
G0/1 N/A
AP-1 52
Router IP N/A
NetAdmin NIC N/A

Step1: Configure basic settings on the RTR-1 router. 
In order to be scored as correct, the values that you
configure must match the exact values that are
provided unless otherwise noted. Configure the following:

 The router name: RTR-1 

 The  enable secret (privileged EXEC mode)
password: ef56GH
 An MOTD banner. You can use any text for this.
 The console line should require a password for all
logins. Use a password of ab12CD 
 The VTY lines should require a password for remote
access. Use a password of cd34EF
 All passwords should automatically be encrypted.

Step 2: Configure the LAN interfaces of the RTR-1 router.

Configure the interfaces as follows:

1. Activate both LAN interfaces of RTR-1.

2. Address both LAN interfaces using the information in
the addressing table.

Step 3: Configure remote management on the SW-1 switch.

Configure the switch SVI by using the default management
interface as follows:

1. Activate the interface.

2. Address the interface according to the values shown
in the addressing table.
3. Determine the address to use as the switch default
gateway from the addressing table. Configure the
switch default gateway. The switch should be
reachable from other networks.

Step 4: Configure the SW-1 switch to use SSH for remote

Remote connections to the switch should use SSH to
connect.  All configured values must match the values
provided below exactly. Configure SSH by using the

 Domain name: company
 Switch name:  SW-1
 Crypto key modulus: 1024
 Configure local login on the VTY lines 
 Incoming connections should use the SSH protocol.
 Create a user named admin
 The user should be required to use a password
of xy89uv

Note: In order to access privileged EXEC mode remotely

from a SSH client, a privileged EXEC mode password must
be set. This is not a requirement for this assessment.

Step 5: Configure the AP-1 wireless network device.

Configure the wireless network device with addresses,
DHCP settings, and wireless network settings. Be certain
to  save your settings before moving between screens in
the device configuration GUI.

   1. Establish a connection with the AP-1 device from

host NetAdmin.
a. Connect an Ethernet cable from NetAdmin to any LAN
port on the AP-1 device. Do not delete this connection.
b. Use the addressing table to provide an IP address and
mask to NetAdmin.
c. Use the browser on NetAdmin to connect to the router
IP address of the wireless device. Use admin as both the
user name and password.
Note: You may need to wait until the link lights on both
ends of the Ethernet cable are green before you can
connect to the AP-1 wireless network device from host
   2. Configure the Internet interface of the device
according to the values in the addressing table.
   3. Configure DHCP as follows:
a. Configure the router IP address and mask with the
values shown in the addressing table. Save this setting to
update the pool of addresses that will be used by DHCP.
b. Set the first address to be used to
c. DHCP should provide 50 IP addresses for hosts on the
   4. Configure wireless settings as follows:
a. Use the network name of XYZwLAN.
b. Be sure that the SSID can be seen by hosts that are
attempting to connect to the wireless LAN.
c. Secure the wireless LAN with WPA2 Personal.
d. Use AES for encryption.
e. The passphrase should be abcd1234.
Step 6: Configure the PC 1 and LTP-1 hosts.
Configure the wired and wireless hosts as follows.

   1. Configure the PC 1 host with the addressing values

shown in the addressing table.
   2. Configure the LTP-1 host to connect to the wireless
network using the values that you configured in Step 5.
   3. The LTP-1 host will receive its network addressing
information over DHCP.
Verify connectivity. If you have configured everything
correctly the PC 1and LTP-1 hosts should be able to
connect to the Internet. In addition, the SW-1 switch
should be reachable by the PC 1 and LTP-1 hosts and
the Internet server.
