    Network Cable Tester

    Hi Guys,

    Anyone got a recommendation for a decent Cat6 cable tester? I don't want to spend Big Bucks maybe £100 tops but we've got some shoddy wiring done here and I want to test all the iffy points and maybe install a few more!

    Thanks

    Steve

    A particular one doesn't spring to mind but if your spending £100 you should be able to get a decent one, I spent just £19 on mine and it works great.

    We have a Peak cable analyser (£65) - one of the best pieces of accessory kit we've ever had.

    I've had that one before and its good, I've also had and got various Fluke version of CAT5 and 6 testers all of them are very much recommended.
