One of the problems with wired networks is that when they cease to work, troubleshooting may be a little more difficult as compared to wireless networks. This is where a network cable tester can help you. A network cable tester is a useful device that allows you to check the continuity of the cable to figure out if the signal is strong enough to get through to the network. This helps to eliminate cable connectivity issues while troubleshooting the problems.

It is important to remember that you should never connect a live wire circuit to a network cable tester. It should be used only after the cable has been disconnected from the router, modem, and a computer. Generally, a network cable tester has two parts – the tester and remote. Most testers work with two or three connectors. In general, they will have an Ethernet RJ-45 connector, telephone cable RJ-11 connectors and one BNC for the coaxial cable.

The remote has connectors for Ethernet and telephone cable. Using a network cable tester is a simple affair. All you have to do is connect the cable to the right port on the tester and connect the remote to the other end. Once you run the network cable tester, you will be able to figure out if the network problem lies in the connectivity. If it doesn’t, you will have ruled it out and can continue troubleshooting.
