  • We use the IntelliTone Pro 200 Toner/Probe from Fluke Networks and it's worked perfectly every time I've used it.

    I'm not sure if this is the exact same model you have linked in the original question or not but I'll post it anyway just in case.

    • It is not printing it is ringing out network connections.

    • There are many brands available and many of the cheaper ones get very good reviews. What you get depends on how much work you anticipate doing with it. If you only anticipate very occasional use then get a cheap one. If you want set up a business doing network work then spend more and go to a more established brand. Technology is progressing and so if the Company may upgrade their network then you want a toner for that situation. Judging from your requirements, if it were me and my money, I would probably go for a cheaper one to see how it goes. If, eventually, it is inadequate then you will know more about them and with Amazon you can get next day delivery of a more expensive toner.

    • adrian_ych​ not printer toner, a network toner for toning out and testing cables. Sorry I did not clarify network toner tool. I have now adjusted the post to reflect network toner.

    • I think if you google LAN cable tester you might more hits as nowadays LAN cable testers are just more than toners (which can mean printer or copier "ink" or cosmetics)....no pun intended. The one I am using in office even gives estimate length in inches or which strend is broken etc

    • Toners tone, testers test - they are different. You use a toner to identify which is which cable - e.g. connect tone source at one end then go to where there are lots of cables and use detector to identify the matching cable. You would then connect a tester to test it. Cheap toner kits work well - get one with rj45 and croc clips plus an indication light/silent mode.

      Testers range from simple testing of pairs e.g. UTP terminated with RJ45, or full signal test which tells you if it is complaint not just if pairs are connected.

    • m@ttshaw​ Thank you for the clarification. I thought they had devices that would do both, tone and test out, is that not the case or are those devices that both tone and test out cables expensive? 

      I figured the two links I shared did both, though I was not sure on if the netalley actually toned out cables, I thought it did but wasn't sure. I'd preferably like to get a device that tones and tests out cables instead of having to get 2 different pieces of equipment.

    • Currently using Intellitone 200. The old one looked very similar but not sure which model it was.
