This lab is about 5.3.1.3 Packet Tracer – Identify MAC and IP Addresses. In this tutorial we will discuss about 5.3.1.3 lab answers, in last tutorial we discuss about Introduction to 5.1.2.8 Lab answer – Viewing Network Device MAC Addresses.

5.3.1.3 Packet tracer answer

Here we have topology of 5.3.1.3 Packet Tracer – Identify MAC and IP Addresses. Equipment’s which we required are as follows

  1. 1 Router
  2. 2 switches
  3. 1 hub
  4. 1 access point (AP)
  5. 4 PC’s
  6. 2 Laptops

5.3.1.3 Packet Tracer Lab objectives

We have few objectives of this lab which we have to do.

Gather PDU information

  1. Click 172.16.31.2 and open the command prompt
  2. Enter the Ping 10.10.10.3 command
  3. Switch to simulation mode and repeat the ping 10.10.10.3 command. A PDU appears next to 172.16.31.2
  4. Click on that PDU and note the following information the Outbound PDU layer tab
  • Destination MAC address: 00D0:BA8E:741A
  • Source MAC address: 000C:85CC:1DA7
  • Source IP address: 172.16.31.2
  • Destination IP address: 10.10.10.3
  • At Device: Computer

Click Capture/Forward to move the PDU to next device Gather the information again. You have to do this step again and again record this PDU information in a spreadsheet.

5.3.1.3 Packet tracer

Repeat the process in Step 1 and Gather information for the following tests.


  1. Ping 10.10.10.2 from 10.10.10.3
  2. Ping 172.16.31.2 from 172.16.31.3
  3. Ping 172.16.31.4 from 172.16.31.5
  4. Ping 172.16.31.4 from 172.16.31.2
  5. Ping 172.16.31.3 from 10.10.10.2
Answer the following questions regarding the Captured data:
  1. Were there different types of wires used to connect devices?
  2. Did the wires change the handling of the PDU in any way?
  3. Did the Hub lose any of the information given to it?
  4. What does the Hub do with MAC addresses and IP addresses?
  5. Did the wireless Access Point do anything with the information given to it?
  6. Any MAC or IP address lost during the wireless transfer?
  7. What was the highestOSI layer that the Hub and Access Point used?
  8. Did the Hub or Access Point ever replicate a PDU that was rejected with a red “X”?
  9. When examining the PDU Details tab, which MAC address appeared first, the source or the destination?
  10. Was there a pattern to the MAC addressing in the simulation?
  11. Did the switches ever replicate a PDU that was rejected with a red “X”?
  12. every time that the PDU was sent between the 10 network and the 172 network, there was a point where the MAC addresses suddenly changed. Where did that occur?
  13. Which device uses MAC addresses starting with 00D0?
  14. To what devices did the other MAC addresses belong?
  15. Did the sending and receiving IPv4 addresses switch in any of the PDUs?
  16. If you follow the reply to a ping, sometimes called a

Pong, do the sending and receiving IPv4 addresses switch?

  1. What is the pattern to the IPv4 addressing in this simulation?
  2. Why do different IP networks need to be assigned to different ports of a router?
  3. If this simulation was configured with IPv6 instead of IPv4, what would be different?
