CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q121

A company has changed ISPs for their office and ordered a new 250 Mbps symmetrical Internet connection. As a result, they have been given a new IP range. The ISP has assigned the company 10.10.150.16 /28. The company gateway router has the following interface configuration facing the ISP:
Interface A:
IP address: 10.10.150.16
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.240
Default gateway: 10.10.150.32
Speed: 1000 Mbps
Duplex: Auto
State: No Shutdown
None of the workstations at the company are able to access the Internet. Which of the following are the reasons? (Select TWO).

A. There is a duplex mismatch between the router and ISP.
B. The router interface is turned off.
C. The interface is set to the incorrect speed.
D. The router is configured with the incorrect subnet mask.
E. The router interface is configured with the incorrect IP address.
F. The default gateway is configured incorrectly.

Correct Answer: E,F
Section: Troubleshooting

Explanation:
According to the IP Address Range Calculator, for the given subnet mask and the IP range address range assigned by the ISP, the first host address should be 10.10.150.17 and the broadcast address should be 10.10.150.31. Therefore, the router interface is configured with the incorrect IP address and the default gateway is configured incorrectly.
