Though you may not find in-depth

well as available troubleshooting tools from Cisco and third-party vendors.
Next, the authors contend with hardware, booting, and media (which
essentially means answers as to what could be preventing the network routers or switches from automatically firing up).
In addition, potential Ethernet,
FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface), and Token Ring malfunctions are more than sufficiently addressed.
