A technician installed a network adapter in a computer and wants to test network connectivity. The ping command can only receive a response from local workstations. What could be causing the problem?
- The NIC driver is out of date.
- The operating system is not compatible with the remote sites.
- The TCP/IP protocol stack is not loaded.
- The default gateway is not set.
In order to access remote networks, a host IP configuration must include the address of the device that will be used to access the Internet or other networks. Pings to remote networks will fail if the default gateway is incorrect. Because the user can access local hosts, there are no problems with the NIC or operating system.
