I bought a bunch of used tools for my home wiring project and most of them are in working condition. This 468 tester (Progressive electronics) I'm not too sure about. I changed the 9V battery, connected a CAT5 patch cable between the transmitter and reciever and switched the tx'er on. Nothing happened. No lights. nothing. I tried all the ports : 568A/568B/USOC.
I am planning to install a gigabit Cat5e network in my house. I gathered some kind of test equipment would be nice to verify installation. Of course I can plug 2 computers into the network to verify the network too. The cable is already in and waiting to be jack'ed. It will be leviton jacks (from home depot) installed with a Harris D814. Patch cables will be off-the-shelf. This is first time I'm doing this but I gathered the right tools should ensure success.
I did get a Progressive Electronics tone generator and inductive amplifier too. Will these help ensure the wiring is good for gigabit LAN ?
Thanks for your time..
