I am seeking a means of performing basic 10/100 bit error rate
testing using a Win XP laptop w/ integrated NIC. Essentially I am
looking for a software application to run on the laptiop that can
generate and terminate fixed length (up to 1518 byte) packets of
random data content.
The purpose is simple 10/100 bit error rate testing. I don't need to
manipulate the IP header, nor is higher level protocol testing
required. However, it is necessary for the software tool to generate -
as well as terminate - test traffic, so a receive-only
sniffer/protocol analyzer won't work.
The desired functionality is equivalent to a very stripped-down/poor
man's version of a Spirent SmartBits with a SX-7410 card and
