Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

A network technician is diagnosing a signal strength problem in a newly installed CAT6 cable run. The technician uses a cable tester to measure the signal strength and notices a higher-than-expected dB loss likely affecting the network performance. Which of the following is the most likely cause of this excessive dB loss?

  • The cable run is adjacent to heating ducts, causing fluctuations in temperature.

  • The cable run exceeds the recommended maximum distance for CAT6 cables, leading to significant signal attenuation.

  • Different types of cables were mixed in the same run, such as CAT5 and CAT6.

  • The termination of the cable connectors does not follow the T568A or T568B standard.
