Would someone be able to recommend a reliable tool that I could use in order to test if a network point is live please?
I need something that's very easy to use. Preferable something hand-held, that I can plug into a network point in my office and e.g. will light up green if the point is active, and red it not.
I know I can achieve the same thing by plugging in any network device with a network connection (e.g a laptop), but I don't have access to other devices all the time.
As far as I know the cabling is all Cat 5 or 7 and standard rj45 connection type.
Most of the tools I see are quite advanced and come with various addons and pieces that I will never use.
