Which two statements about access points are true? (Choose two)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
Access points (APs) are network devices that enable wireless communication between Wi-Fi-enabled devices and a wired network. They act as a bridge between wireless clients and the wired network infrastructure.
The correct statements about access points are:
B. in Most cases, they are physically connected to other network devices to provide network connectivity
Access points are typically connected to other network devices such as switches, routers, or firewalls using Ethernet cables to provide network connectivity. The Ethernet cable provides a backhaul connection that enables wireless clients to access the wired network.
D. Most access points provide Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Most access points are designed to provide Wi-Fi connectivity to wireless clients. Some access points also provide Bluetooth connectivity to enable wireless communication between devices that support Bluetooth.
Let's examine the other options:
A. They can provide access within enterprises and to the public.
This statement is incorrect because access points are typically used within enterprises to provide wireless connectivity to employees and guests. While public access points exist, they are typically provided by service providers in public areas such as airports, coffee shops, and malls.
C. They can protect a network from internal and external threats.
Access points can provide some security features such as authentication and encryption to protect the wireless network from unauthorized access. However, they cannot protect the wired network from internal and external threats.
E. They must be hardwired to a modem.
This statement is incorrect because access points are typically connected to other network devices such as switches, routers, or firewalls using Ethernet cables, not to a modem. A modem is typically used to provide internet connectivity to the network.
