• Research paper Trevonne J. Hendricks Sanford Brown NET120-1404A-01 Network Fundamentals Individual Project #4 In today evolving world of technology a sluggish network can results to low productivity, challenge to information technology staff as well as network user. By detecting roots of such problems can we note the symptoms which aid determining the appropriate diagnostic tools and problems which can be fixed and repaired adequately to benefit all. This paper will therefore look at these arising symptoms which cause network underperformance, network tools of diagnosis and network repair process.

• Low network performance coupled with FCS errors and early collision This are natural side effects of collision and consequences of CSMA/CD which are noted by noise signals on network to highlighting improper grounding of network, electromagnetic interference along the cable are sources of these FCS errors, (Balci, A., Kumas, E., & Medeni, T. D, 2009; Aubrun, C., Simon, D., & Song, Y.-Q. 2010; Michael, K., & Michael, M. G,2009). A faulty network interface card brings station suspicion. faulty connectors on the other hand of early collisions lead to network underperformance and checking for cables conformity is necessary to check on this problem example IEEE 802.3 10 base 5-cables are marked after every 2.5 meters as loose connectors may nodes in one segment, cause incomplete missing termination or a kink in a cable. Connection loss of a single network load occurs when there is loose network cable or interface which results to sudden complete outage in one network node due to misconfigured network interface card which affects sending and receiving of weather packets, broken network card, blown fuse and power supply lines problems such problems also occurs when send signals transmissions are aborted when detected as they signal quality error as well as misconfigured bridges. (Balci, A., Kumas, E., & Medeni, T. D, 2009; Aubrun, C., Simon, D., & Song, Y.-Q. 2010; Michael, K., & Michael, M. G,2009). • Network connection to the
