Which network device interconnects computers in a workgroup, is able to be remotely configured, and provides the best throughput?

  • Unmanaged switch
  • Hub
  • Router
  • Managed switch

Explanation:

Managed switches – these switches have one or more methods to modify the operation of the switch. Common management methods include: a command-line interface (CLI) accessed via serial console, telnet or Secure Shell, an embedded Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent allowing management from a remote console or management station, or a web interface for management from a web browser.

Incorrect:
not A: Unmanaged switches are basic plug-and-play switches with no remote configuration, management, or monitoring options, although many can be locally monitored and configured via LED indicators and DIP switches.
Not B: Hubs cannot be managed.
Not C: Switches are faster than routers.
