MODDING & TWEAKING – an Ethermeter

An alternative network cable tester
Although wireless networks are becoming more popular these days, cabled networks are still in widespread use. They are usually faster, cheaper (equipment-wise), more secure and easier to configure. One disadvantage of such a hard-wired connection is that the information carrier (the cable) can sometimes give up the ghost. We have designed this circuit to provide a simple test of the connections.

Due to a crashed hard disk in the author’s PC an early version of the circuit diagram was printed. The correct schematic is shown in Mailbox, March 2007.
