Assessment/evidence gathering conditions
Each assessment component is recorded as either Competent (C) or Not Yet Competent (NYC). A student can only achieve competence when all assessment components listed under “Purpose of the assessment” section are recorded as competent. Your trainer will give you feedback after the completion of each assessment. A student who is assessed as NYC (Not Yet Competent) is eligible for re-assessment.
Resources required for this assessment
• Computer with relevant software applications and access to internet
• Weekly eLearning notes relevant to the tasks/questions
Instructions for Students
Please read the following instructions carefully
• This assessment has to be completed 1 In class 1 At home
• The assessment is to be completed according to the instructions given by your assessor.
• Feedback on each task will be provided to enable you to determine how your work could be improved. You will be provided with feedback on your work within two weeks of the assessment due date. All other feedback will be provided by the end of the term.
• Should you not answer the questions correctly, you will be given feedback on the results and your gaps in knowledge. You will be given another opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and skills to be deemed competent for this unit of competency.

• Skills to identify possible security threats and secure the network.
In this assessment task, you are required to:
• Install and configure Network Hardware
• Install and configure wireless office network
• Test the wireless network
• Prepare user documentation for training
The practical part of this assessment will be observed directly by your assessor. You are also required to print out the screen shots (wherever possible) of each task you have performed to provide evidence and submit it with a cover page.
Resources to be provided to complete this assessment task:
• Computer with hardware and software specification
• Router with installation manuals
• Cables with cutter and RJ45 Crimper tools
• Access Point
• Existing LAN with Internet connection
• Organisation policy in regards to connecting with existing LAN and WAN
Scenario
Part A - Install and network hardware and Install and configure wireless office network
In continuation to Assessment 1, the you are required to install a networking hardware and configure the access point to the existing LAN and manage the services of a wireless network. The implementation of the wireless network includes the setup of access point, installation and configuration of the services of the access point. The assessor will act as the management authority and will provide all the network related hardware including wireless routers, WIFI adaptors/dongles and cables.
According to the given scenario perform all the following activities:
1. Prepare an Installation plan for the installation and configuration of a Wireless network for Devon Education. You will have to analyse the requirements of Devon Education for the implementation of the Wireless LAN. The installation plan should include the following:
o all hardware and software components required for this installation, configuration, and testing
o Floor plan survey/inspection to finalise access point counts and locations.
o WiFi design consideration according to the access points locations and equipment needed.
o Cabling and power arrangements
This is a paper based exercise. Write your installation plan, showing what has to be done, where items of equipment are to be located, where cables will run (think about power over ethernet if you are putting access points in the ceiling – less important if they are going to be located near existing power points. This design needs to use the equipment you recommended in the first assignment. You also need to specify the order in which you do the installation – taking into account the need to NOT disrupt the existing network until you are ready to migrate people to the new network. I.E. this is a continuation of assignment 1.
2. Install and configure the wireless router to manage the wireless access to the network. (Done remotely)
3. Connect the router's WAN port to your internet source, such as a DSL or cable modem, using the first network cable. (Done remotely)
4. Connect the laptop or computer to the wireless router. Configure the services of the router by accessing the web interface of the router. (You will remotely tell james how to connect his iPhone to the network you construct in step 2 above)
5. Add WPA2 security. Change the wireless network name (SSID). Update the MAC address of the router. (You will do this remotely – there is no point in changing the MAC address of the router because we are using TCP/IP – not some outdated protocol that needed the MAC address configured in a special way).
6. Configure the network security features on the wireless router and activate the Wi-Fi. (Done remotely)
7. Install and configure wireless network card in the desktops as per the requirements. (Can’t be done remotely, and all modern equipment comes with either WiFi or built in ethernet or both).
And fill the following template for the wireless network installation and settings. (We may need to change the table – it’s pretty crap unusable.

TEMPLATE for Task 7 - Setting up Wireless Network
S No. IP Address SUBNET MASK Default Gateway Wireless Router Make ACCESS POINT Location MAC Address Device Supports DNS Name Data Port No. Device Interface Speed DHCP Support NAT configurations via DHCP option



Part B - Test the wireless network
Once the installation of the wireless router is done and the access point has been accessed by the users, the student needs to test the wireless network for its optimal performance. The testing will ensure not only the verification of the wireless network but will also help to manage the security and firewall arrangements of the network. Your assessor will act as the IT Manager and will provide you all the testing and diagnostic tools for the wireless network.
According to the given scenario do all the following activities:
1. Test the access point (Yes) and update the wireless router firmware (Only check to see if there is an update – not applicable to all devices as some do this automatically outside the scope of the user – I’m talking about you, Telstra Sagem F@st 5355 piece of crap modem.
2. Apply application or use case testing as per the requirements (Done in step 1).
3. Test the security parameters along with the firewall configuration and settings to prevent unauthorised access to the wireless network. (If it is configured with WPA2 – that’s about all we can do).
4. Verifying the connection of the wireless router and the computers and assure the compatibility across multiple devices. (Look at the wireless modem and see what devices are connected)
5. Ensure that devices after authentication are connected with the wireless network. (Can only use WPA-PSK)
6. Test the pairing and log on procedures of the devices of the users. (Can only use WPA-PSK)
7. Install and configure a network monitoring software to monitor the following features of the wireless network using appropriate: (Can only look at the real-time stats and logs provided with the modem/router/access point device).
a. Bandwidth management
b. Network Performance
c. VoIP Traffic Windows
8. Resolve networking problems and ensure trouble free wireless connection by doing the following:
a. Check WAN and LAN connections
b. Verify wireless adapter
c. Verify AP and router settings
d. Verify TCP/IP settings
e. Verify network connection with Ping
f. Check wireless-specific issues
g. Look for a security mismatch

Part C – Developing / Preparing User Documentation and training
Once you have completed the tasks in Part A and Part B, you are to prepare a user documentation for all tasks involved in performing the installation and configuration of a wireless router for handover to the client for training purpose.
(Needs to be done for the design you created in assignment 1)
