    Hey guys,

    Who's studying for the N+ at the moment.

    Would anyone be interested in a sort of Q and A thing while we are all studyings. For instance, if one of us has an issue with something (What exactly is the difference between a gateway, Routher, Bridge and Brouter.), then they post a thread of wonderance, and the rest of us chip in and try to help them to get it.

    The plan I have in my head is . . . If anyone is having any particular problems, or maybe something is just a little hazy (Even if it is only a bit hazy), then they start a thread here outlining it.

    Something like . . . 'Does anyone know what software you'd have to install on a mac to let it attach to a Win 2k Server.', or 'Does anyone know of a way of remembering . . . ' or 'When exactlyu would you use a gateway instead of a bridge.' Then we just start to discuss it. That way, even if you do know the particular subject, it will get clearer in one's mind.

    So, does anyone have any questions to start us off?

    I'm like you boyce, ready to take the exam . . . I think.

    I missed out on a getcertified N+ voucher last week, that would have made it about 84 quid to take. But as it is, I may just go for the $199 one they have on there all the time. About 120 quid, but at least it saves 35 . . . thats about 15 pints in my local. :D

    Ok another question.. serious this time..

    Looking at the objectives for N+ its askin Which layer of the OSI do WAPs operate in?

    Now i cant find that mentioned anywhere specifically... I got routers, switches, hubs etc but not WAP.

    I'd have to say that i think it would be the Data layer like switches and bridges tho possibly it could be the physical layer.
    Anyone else know?

    If WAP = Wireless Access Point then they have elements of layers 1 and 2.

    They are physical objects - so layer 1. And they behave as ethernet bridges and routers, so layer 2.

    I'm assuming a pure WAP here, rather than a combo device.

    Guys, remember the Chat Room is always available if you want to have a freeform discussion on any matters N+ (or any other cert, for that matter). If you all want to arrange something, then let me know and I'll keep it clear for you, and arrange a Mod if you want as well :)

    The problem is that nearly all network devices these days have memory - it is cheap to fit.
