ccie wireless

The CCIE tests are going to ask you many questions about specifics of routers and switches. Even if you take the CCIE wireless, they will ask you switch and router questions, because come on, you are supposed to be an internet expert! So do you really know the basics of switches? How about troubleshooting a connection? Cable test commands? How about “test capwap ap super” commands? You better!

You start a switch based cabled test with this command

“test cable-diagnostics tdr interface gigabitEthernet 1/0/33”

After the test is run, about 45 seconds, type this command:

superswitch1007-RX001#show cable-diagnostics tdr interface gigabitEthernet 1/0/33
TDR test last run on: December 09 10:13:25

Interface Speed Local pair Pair length Remote pair Pair status


Gi1/0/33 1000M Pair A 27 +/- 10 meters Pair A Normal
Pair B 27 +/- 10 meters Pair B Normal
Pair C 27 +/- 10 meters Pair C Normal
Pair D 27 +/- 10 meters Pair D Normal
superswitch1007-RX001#

Interface Speed Local pair Pair length Remote pair Pair status


What about abnormal conditions? Look out the output below. This is a 100megabit only network device, it actually did function at 100mbps with the below two pairs shorted.

Gi1/0/32 100M Pair A 0 +/- 1 meters Pair A Normal
Pair B 0 +/- 1 meters Pair B Normal
Pair C 33 +/- 1 meters N/A Short
Pair D 34 +/- 1 meters N/A Short
