Identify, monitor, and correct LAN issues

Tests 10/100/1000 Base-T, IPV4/IPV6, VLAN, DHCP and more

The Net Prowler™ Cabling and Advanced Network Tester takes all the features and functionality of the Cable Prowler™ and adds the capability to identify, monitor, and troubleshoot LAN issues associated with physical layer and link conditions in the network.

  • Supports IPV4 and IPV6 protocols
  • Verifies DHCP connectivity and DNS
  • Pings IPV4, IPV6, and URL addresses
  • CDP, LLDP, NDP, and VLAN detection
  • TCP/UDP Throughput Test
  • Detects presence of PoE and class of PoE per IEEE 802.3af/at with load test for voltage drop
  • Detects and reports current link speed and link capabilities for active Ethernet drops up to 1 Gbps
  • Link light to identify location on a hub/switch/router port
  • Tests CAT3/5e/6/6a Ethernet cable configuration and verifies connectivity while conducting tests for opens, shorts, miswires, split pairs, and reverses
  • Supports up to 8 testing and ID remotes for network & telephone cables
  • Supports up to 20 network and coax ID-only mapping remotes
  • Ability to define Network test name, cable name, save and print all results (cable testing and network testing)
