    Which of the following statements is true about Token Ring. Choose only one.

    1. Described by IEEE 802.5. The fastest NIC on the ring dictates the speed of the network.

    2. Supports speeds of 4Mbps and 16 Mbps and can use a variety of cable types including STP and UTP.

    3. Token Ring topology is typically a physical ring and logical star and the access method is token passing media

    4. Token Ring is a gradually disappearing technology because of high cost and proprietary hardware. Token Ring uses a dual ring topology like FDDI.

    Answer later.

    I admire the both of you for standing up and taking a shot at this when your peers seem to have begged off. Unfortunately, 3 is not true. A Token Ring network is a physical star and a logical ring...not the other way around (needless to say, I looked it up).

    2 is the correct answer and frankly I was surprised that Token Ring could use STP and UTP.

    More later...on some forum or another. :tongue

    Sorry, but I didn't get to this before. My choice was 2 before I looked at the answer but I guess it doesn't count.:oops:

    I was about to answer 2 as well nuggy, until I noticed that i was a tad late LOL

    Remember your OSI model folks, physical media and signaling is independant of datalink layer protocols such as ethernet/token ring et all, its the very reason the OSI model was concieved, so you can choose what you want at each level, and know that they should all interoperate nicely
    (just like you can run ethernet over fiibre, utp, stp, coax, and other custom types of cable, so the same can be said for token ring (if you can ever find the gear))

    Great clarification, Ryan. True; the day of Token Ring is just about done. Ethernet rules. :D
