    Smile LAN Toolkit

    Good Morning Everyone,

    I am new to my post and looking for a LAN toolkit to tidy up a mess the previous chap left behind in the nursery,

    There is a 3-com 48 port switch screwed to the wall, all the cat 5 cables come through the wall and have RJ45 connections
    on the end of them.
    It doesn't look very nice and its not professional so I would like to order a cab and a patch panel and re-cable it all
    but I dont have a tool kit, it would have to have the obvious tools in it for crimping and punching down etc...
    but also some sort of device to identify which cable goes to which socket would be nice.

    I have seen this but has anyone seen anything better ???

    LAN Installation Tool Kit | Screwfix.com

    Cheers in advance
    Stan.

    I would just buy a crimper, cable clippers, Punchdown tool, Cyclops, bag of RJ45's and a cable tester, all you need really. The pack from screwfix is not bad.

    Too many things you don't need.

    As said

    RJ45 Crimp
    Good Side Clippers
    Punchdown

    Add a good multihead screwdriver and a £2 chineese ebay cable tester and you will be fine.

    A simple cable tone tracer helps in these situations.
