CIS 293 Week 3 Individual Assignment Use of Network Diagnostic Tools


Instructions: Information about networks can be collected using common network troubleshooting tools. Use the Command Line Tool on a PC with a Windows® operating system connected to the Internet to learn what the following commands reveal:   

  • PING
  • ARP Note: In Mac computers, the DOS command line is called Terminal. It is accessed via Applications/Utilities.

Note: Mac users, there may be some instances where the required course software is not compatible with the Mac operating system. In such cases, you will need to access a computer that is running Windows® or on your Mac run Windows® emulation software such Parallels, VMware Fusion, Boot Camp or Virtual Box in order to access the software. Record the results on the Network Tools Worksheet. Submit the completed worksheet to the Assignment Files tab.


CIS 293 Week 4 Individual Assignment Design and Test a Small Network

Instructions: Resources:   

  •® video, Visio 2016 Essential Training
  • Design Tools article located within the Week Two Electronic Reserve Readings You work for a regional company that provides payroll and benefit administration services. The company is opening a new regional office and you have been tasked with the following:
  • Designing a hybrid wired and wireless network that meets the defined uses and requirements
  • Summarizing a test plan for the new network installation Network Uses and Requirements are as follows:
  • The new office will have five accountants, five support staff, and an IT administrator.
  • The accountants and the IT administrator will each have separate offices.
  • There will be one conference room.
  • The support staff will have a shared space with separate work stations.
  • In addition to the computers, the following devices will be on the network and shared by everyone:
  • Two high-end color LaserJet multifunction printers with copy, scan, print, and fax capabilities
  • Two low-end single function laser printers
  • E-Mail Server
  • File Server, which contains several databases
  • Print Server
  • The employees in the new office will also need access to the main office network and Internet. •  A guest network is also needed for customers that provides Internet access. Create the following documentation:   
  • A network diagram illustrating your network design created in Microsoft® Visio®; including the appropriate security features, labeled network components, and the correct diagram shapes.
  • A 1-page executive summary explaining the design and identifying the high-level components included in the network installation test plan. Submit the Microsoft® Visio® file and the Executive Summary to the Assignment Files Tab.

Note: Your network design will be used in the Week Five Individual Assignment titled, "Network Performance Troubleshooting Processes."




CIS 293 Week 5 Individual Assignment Network Performance Troubleshooting Processes


Instructions: In Week Four, you designed a hybrid wired and wireless network, identified the hardware components needed for the network, and summarized the installation test plan. This week you will create troubleshooting documentation for three common network performance issues that could occur after network implementation. Update the network diagram from the Week Four assignment titled, "Design and Test a Small Network" per the instructor's feedback. Choose three of the following performance issues:   

  • Unable to acquire an IP address
  • Wireless client cannot connect
  • Cannot connect to the RAID application server
  • Internet access is down
  • Slow network performance Document a 1-page process for each of your three selected issues in Microsoft® Visio®. Create each flowchart on a separate, labeled tab within the same Visio® file. Each flowchart should identify the network diagnostic tool(s) that can be used to troubleshoot the issue. Submit the Microsoft® Visio® file and your revised network diagram to the Assignment Files tab.
