CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q111

Ann, a user, is experiencing an issue with her wireless device. While in the conference area, the wireless signal is steady and strong. However, at her desk the signal is consistently dropping, yet the device indicates a strong signal. Which of the following is the MOST likely cause of the issue?

A. Signal-to-noise ratio
B. AP configuration
C. Incorrect SSID
D. Bounce

Correct Answer: D
Section: Troubleshooting

Explanation:
The signal between the access point and Ann’s wireless device is being bounced off walls, windows, glass mirrors, carpeted floors, and many other objects. This results in the slow connection. The radio waves are travelling at the same rate, but as a result of signal bounce, it’s taking longer to reach its destination.
