        Q:I found my home panel is wired CAT 5e - 568A and all cables are 568B. One of my runs is capped at 100 MHz while the 7 others are at 1 GHz. I picked up the Klein LAN Scout Jr. 2 and got 21654387 results? Panel and Jack look fine? Thoughts. Thanks

            Great investment in an excellent tool!
            I bought this tester for a project at my house where I installed Ethernet wiring throughout the house. I used it to test my final connections between two points. Being my first time terminating Ethernet, I thought it wise to invest in this tool to verify my work was done properly. I'm glad I did! It helped me confirm that I had everything pinned out correctly and displayed a message of "pass" on the screen when evrything was correct. Helped me quickly identify if I had a problem somewhere, which I did a time or two. Well worth the $50! As other reviewers said, it works quickly too. Seems well built and durable too. I plan to make patch cables next, and plan to use it to verify that they will work. I opted for his model, versus the more expensive Klein models, since I only needed to use it on Ethernet wiring. My only tip for use is that you need a spare patch cable (not included) if you need to test a female connection, so that you can connect the remote or the tester to it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to test their wiring installations, or to test existing wiring.

            Worked like a charm. Told me I had 2 bad wires/connections. Replaced connection and the cable is working fine now.

              Awesome tool
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Use it all the time when terminating Cat 6 and RG11 cable. Saved me tons of headaches in pin testing all my wire runs with this tool. 5 stars
