I have been trying to crimp cat6+ cables at home and been having issues. some would work fine at gig others would only go to 100mb. Is there a reasonable tester out there for verifying a cable run will work @ 1gb?
I was looking at the one above and cant tell if it would do what I need it to do. I will need to test both patch cables and hard runs. I may end up running poe 600' in to the barn for security cameras so that looked interesting. the tester w/o the poe is about 400. My servers and a couple desktops will need access to the san at a gig so those I want to be able to run full speed. I may end up with seperate lan for storage in the near future but right now it will be shared so I am trying to make sure the parts are up for the chalange when the network get seperated. There's also a fluke out there for 400 but I cant tell if that one does cable quality or not either. Mind you this is for home use so I cant drop 4k+ for a nice fluke.
