Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

A network technician is troubleshooting connectivity issues within a new Ethernet cable run. Using a cable tester, they discover that only pairs 1, 2, 3, and 6 are correctly terminated, while pairs 4, 5, 7, and 8 are not showing any connectivity. What is the next BEST action the technician should take based on the cable tester's findings?

  • Check for an incorrect VLAN assignment on the switch port.

  • Re-terminate the cable ends for the affected pairs.

  • Replace the cable with another one without testing.

  • Test the components that the cable is connected to for faults.

  • Use a punchdown tool to fix the connectivity issue.

  • Simply swap the transmission (TX) and reception (RX) pairs.
