    Quick RJ-45 Network Cable Tester

    When a LAN connection fails, you can swap out the cable to see if it is the problem or you can reach for the Monoprice LAN Quicker 009!

    This cable tester is designed to troubleshoot RJ45 LAN cables, both UTP and STP. It not only tells you if the cable passes or fails the test, it indicates which pins fail and whether they are open, shorted, or crossed. This allows you to easily see if the cable is your problem and what you need to do to fix it, if it is.

    The tester has two basic testing modes: Auto and Step.

    In auto mode it makes a single pass over the cable and gives a result. It shows whether the cable passed or failed and, if it failed, the type of failure (open, short, or cross) and the affected pins/wires.

    In step mode the tester steps through each wire independently with each press of the Test button. This allows you to get detailed results for a cable that may have multiple types of failures. For example, you can see that pin 1 is open, pins 2 and 3 are crossed, and that pin 4 is shorted.

    WARNING!!! Do not test live circuits as it could cause damage to the tester unit or personal injury.

    Note: This product has a universal card packaging that is used for PIDs 8129, 8130, and 8131, with the individual model marked on the back. The front of the packaging includes functionality tags for all three testers combined. Therefore, the packaging erroneously indicates that this tester is capable of testing HDMI, Coax, and RJ12 cables, which it is not designed to do. For HDMI cable testing, please use PID 8131. For Coax and RJ11/12 testing, use PID 8129.

    Also note that the manual for this tester shows test results for RJ12, Coax, and USB cables. While it is electrically capable testing these types of cables, the necessary connectors or adapters are not included with the tester.

    worked great

    Pros: easy to use, caught different issues I had (open connections, crossed wires).

    used it for about 50 connections so far and it worked great. Unfortunately I did have trouble with some 23 AWG cat 6 cable connections, but this tester found the problems right away. I highly recommend this product

    Did the job

    Pros: Easy to use

    Cons: As others have mentioned, the terminator can be hard to remove.

    Used this to test CAT5E cables, previously used for phone lines, that I repurposed with keystones and RJ-45 connectors. I didn't know which cables ran to which rooms or if I had attached the RJ-45 jack correctly (first time doing this). This tool allowed me to fix issues with the RJ-45 connectors and identify which cables went where.

    Terminator hard to remove

    • Larry,

    Pros: Cost. Auto power down. 9 volt battery included.

    Cons: Terminator unit hard to slide off and instructions didn't suggest how to remove it.

    Works as advertised. The Terminator slides to the right to remove it. Slide right with the tester main unit facing you and held upright.. Difficult to remove initially without any hint whether the terminator twists or slides forward or backward. But for the money, still a good deal. Purchased through Amazon via Monoprices Amazon store.

    Confirm wiring of RJ45 8p8c plugs on cables you make yourself

    Pros: This is a very good unit allowing you to place one end at the end of a run of cable and the other to power and confirm the connection. Easily identify which wires are not connecting thru or are cross wired. Also good to identify cables already set in a wall to find the matching cable by plugging each into the powered side you can match to the plug on the other end if they are not marked (as is too often the case)

    Cons: 9v battery will discharge over time without use. Necessary to remove battery. (wish battery cover did not require screwdriver, or there was a master power switch)

    This is a very good unit allowing you to place one end at the end of a run of cable and the other to power and confirm the connection. It useful if you are making your own patch or jumper cables from bulk wire to confirm that the connection is properly made. Uses 9v battery. My only criticism is that the 9v battery will discharge if left in the unit and it is not used for a month or so. To prevent you need to remove the battery when you are done with the unit testing. If you use it daily, this isn't an issue.
