Authors Jesin A. Read More. Read More Reviews. Recommended for You. Mobile DevOps. The assessment tool can be used to create practical networking questions with a complex scoring model. The physical workspace provided can be used to determine the range of wireless devices. This book serves as a guide to those using Packet Tracer, be it students, instructors, or administrators. This book differs from others by providing more information on the howtos of Packet Tracer rather than computer networking.
You'll learn how to efficiently use Packet Tracer to learn and understand packet flows in a topology. After reading this chapter, users should understand the use cases and limitations of Packet Tracer and be familiar with the Packet Tracer interface. Chapter 2, Network Devices, covers Cisco network devices such as routers, switches, and other generic devices such as bridges, hubs, repeaters, and WAN emulators.
Network devices enable the end devices to communicate with each other. Configuring these devices from the config tab will also be explained. By the end of this chapter, readers will be able to understand and customize network devices with modules, and save these under Custom Made Devices. Readers will also be able to configure routers and switches using the config tab without using Cisco commands. Chapter 3, Generic IP End Devices, explains PCs, laptops, and servers at large with a brief description on other end devices such as tablets and televisions.
End devices are the ones used by end users, with desktops and laptops being the most common ones. Chapter 4, Creating a Network Topology, explains different connectors, creating network topologies, and configuring them with Cisco commands. After testing the connectivity with complex PDUs, users will also use the simulation mode to analyze the packet flow. After reading this chapter, users will understand the physical limitations of wired and wireless devices.
Physical workspaces are a great way to make topologies more realistic. Chapter 6, Configuring Routing with the CLI, guides the users to configure static and dynamic routing.
A router's job is to route traffic between different networks. IPv4 has exhausted itself and the whole world is now migrating to IPv6. By the end of this chapter, the user will be able to assign IPv6 addresses to network and end devices, configure routing between IPv6 networks, and also configure a topology with both IPv4 and IPv6.
Chapter 9, Setting Up a Wireless Network, explains the wireless devices available in Packet Tracer and makes use of the physical workspace to demonstrate the range of wireless devices. Wireless networking is being implemented everywhere. A VLAN is used to segment a broadcast domain.
By the end of this chapter, users will be able to create timed networking scenario assessments. Packet Tracer has a limited number of wireless devices but provides an unlimited number of possibilities.
When configuring a wireless network, one has to consider the physical range of connectivity. Even though it is only a simulator, the physical workspace of Packet Tracer will enable us to test the wireless range of our network using its capability of moving around devices.
Towards the end of this chapter, we'll also configure a RADIUS server to provide authentication for our wireless network. Following are the wireless modules: This is available for servers, PCs, and laptops. It provides one 2. Once plugged in, this module is configurable through the PC Wireless utility available in the Desktop tab.
This is a basic wireless interface that provides one 2. This module isn't configurable. This is similar in features to the preceding module, except that it provides a 5 GHz wireless interface. This is a router module that works with and routers. These three devices provide the same functionality, they only represent different things.
These devices come with a built-in wireless interface. These are generic wireless access points with minimal configuration options.
All of them have an antenna and a port to connect to a device, such as a router or DHCP server.
Now that we know the network devices available in Packet Tracer, let's start configuring a wireless network. We will use two access points with two different SSIDs, as shown in the following figure: Once this topology is created, you'll find that these devices pair haphazardly with different access points.
Assign IP addresses to all of them from the same subnet space and use the simple PDU tool to check connectivity. Wireless networks and physical workspaces In the real world, each wireless device has a range upto which it can provide wireless connectivity. Packet Tracer simulates this range with the use of physical workspaces. We can see what happens when a laptop with a wireless interface is moved out of wireless range.
For this exercise, we'll use the following topology: We also have a laptop with a wireless interface. Now ping these devices from one another to test connectivity.
Moving to the physical workspace, navigate to Home City Corporate Office. You'll find a round mesh that represents the range of the wireless access point. We are now going to move the laptop to the new office building, out of the wiring closet, and place it in the corporate office, as shown in the following screenshot: We will find that this fails because the laptop is out of range, as shown in the following screenshot: Thus, we've demonstrated the range of wireless devices using the physical workspace.
In this section, we'll use the Linksys devices available in Packet Tracer and create a topology with all these features.
We'll be using Linksys for this demo, as shown in the following figure: Configuration will be as follows. Network configuration will be as follows: UserName alice bob john user1 Password pwd s3ret secr3t passwd Configure a static IP for the server as Next, under the GUI tab of the Linksys router, navigate to Wireless Wireless security and enter the following settings: Linksys Authentication: Once this is configured, the end device will get an IP address and you'll see the wireless link indicating a connection.
Enter any name here, you'll see a list with the SSID name shown, click on Advanced Setup and a wizard will guide you through the process.
Use the simple PDU tool to test the connectivity. If you use the simulation mode before a wireless connection is established between two devices, you will see the RADIUS packet being sent to the server by the router.
Summary This chapter introduced you to the wireless devices used in Packet Tracer.
We also configured a simple wireless topology without any authentication and used the physical workspace to demonstrate the range of wireless devices. For more information, please read our shipping policy. Alternatively, you can buy the book from Amazon, BN. This case study utilizes Packet Tracer.
