Troubleshooting Network Connections
Is the problem in the cabling, the adapter card or the network? The OneTouch Network Assistant conclusively locates the source of the network problem through an extensive set of cable, hub, adapter card and network tests.
The OneTouch Network Assistant provides standard cable tests such as measuring cable length and identifying shorts, opens and split pairs. It generates a wiremap for the cable if appropriate and even measures optical loss and power output on single-mode and multimode cable when used with Fluke Fiber Test Kit.
End Closet Confusion
OneTouch Network Assistant NIC (Network Interface Card) Detector test. This test helps you reclaim hub ports that are no longer used but still have a cable attached.
Verify Isolated Problems
The OneTouch Network Assistant also supports a NIC Autotest that isolates adapter card hardware and driver problems by proving that a card can successfully transmit and receive frames. The Hub Test verifies correct operation of the hub by checking link pulse, signal level and the hub's ability to send and receive frames.
