blimey that is cheap

cat-5-cable-tester
David’s comment to my post about my gigabit ethernet upgrade prompted me to look for a cheap LAN tester so that I could check continuity through the RJ45 coupler that had caused me difficulty. It would also be handy to be able to check the box full of old patch cables that I seem to have accumulated so that I don’t get caught out again.

I found this thing on ebay in minutes, and for the price (£2.49) it was just irresistible. I’m willing to bet the manual will be interesting reading though.
