Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

During diagnostics, a network technician finds that data meant for the subnet 192.168.5.0 is taking an unintended route. Examination of a critical intermediary device shows that the packets are being dispatched to a gateway address that is not in use on the network. What is the BEST course of action to resolve this routing issue?

  • Switch the routing protocol on the intermediary device to automatically find the most efficient path.

  • Power-cycle the intermediary device in an attempt to refresh the routing table and correct the issue.

  • Inspect all physical connections to the intermediary device to ensure there is no signal degradation.

  • Modify the intermediary device's configuration to direct traffic for the subnet to the proper gateway.
