The correct answer is B.

OBJ-5.4: The passphrase in a wireless network serves as the password or network security key. If the incorrect passphrase was entered, you will receive an error such as “Network security key mismatch” and the wireless device will be unable to communicate with the wireless access point. This error can also be received if the encryption protocol is mismatched between the client and wireless access point. Encryption protocols are used to protect WEP, WPA, and WPA2 wireless networks. WEP wireless networks utilize the RC4 encryption protocol. WPA wireless networks utilize the TKIP encryption protocol. WPA2 wireless networks utilize the AES encryption protocol, but they also can support the TKIP encryption protocol, as well. Since the client and the wireless access point are both using AES and WPA2, there is not an encryption protocol mismatch. The received signal strength indication (RSSI) is an estimated measure of the power level that a radio frequency client device is receiving from a wireless access point. If the RSSI is -90dB to -100dB, this indicates an extremely weak connection and insufficient wireless coverage in which the area the device is operating. The service set identifier (SSID) is a natural language name used to identify a wireless network. If you are manually configuring a wireless network and the incorrect SSID is entered, the device will be unable to connect to the network.
