What should you use for this situation.
Which of the following best describes the concept of virtual LAN?
Devices on the same network logically grouped as if they were on separate networks.
A virtual LAN can be created using which of the following?
Which of the following solutions would you implement to eliminate switching loops?
Spanning Tree
When configuring VLANs on a switch, what is used to identify VLAN membership of a device?
Switch Port
You manage a network that uses a single switch. All ports within your building connect through the single switch. In the lobby of your building are three RJ-45 ports connected to the switch.

Spanning tree
You are the network administrator for a city library. Throughout the library are several groups of computers that provide public access to the Internet. Supervision of these computers has been difficult. You’ve had problems with patrons bringing personal laptops into the library and disconnecting the network cables from the library computers to connect their laptops to the Internet. The library computers are in groups of four. Each groups of four computers is connected to a hub that is connected to the library network through an access port on a switch. You want to restrict access to the network so only the library computers are permitted connectivity to the Internet. What can you do?
Configure port security on the switch.
You want to increase the security of your network by allowing only authenticated users to be able to access network devices through a switch. Which of the following should you implement?
When configuring VLANs on a switch, what type of switch ports are members of all VLANs defined on the switch?
Trunk ports
