Looking for a network tester

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, as stated in the title, I'm looking for a network tester and each different tester does so many things that I don't even know where to start! I'm going to purchase a network testing tool and the Fluke D914. For the tester, I want a tester that has remotes to speed up testing, but do not want to break the bank. Displaying the length of the cable would be nice. I mainly test Cat 6 UTP. I never deal with BNC, but the more I can test with it the better. I mainly want a tester that will test from a keystone jack to a modular jack and tell me which end is punched/crimped incorrectly, I don't care if it shows what specific pins are wrong, as long as it shows which end it is. For the Fluke D914 punch down tool, it has several different blade numbers, I just wanted to know which blade was for what purpose. Thank you all for your help!

I use one of these SC8108 testers. The thing works great for me. It can give you the lenght of a cable as well as tell you how far into the cable an open/short is with the remote unit.

I've been using one for a couple of years now without any trouble.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, I would also like one with multiple remotes, but that one does look good for the price.
