  1. Hello, I am new to these forums, so I hope this post is in the right place. Anyways, I am about to wire my house with CAT6, so I have been creating some small patch cords & outlets just to practice. My test cords all appear to be working correctly for gigabit ethernet, but my question is how can I verify that my cable runs pass the requirements for NEXT and return loss? Using gigabit ethernet to test the runs really only verifies that my connections are at least as good as CAT5e. I know that I could buy a scanner for a few thousand bucks, but I was wondering if there is any (less expensive!) software available that could do this with a laptop? I mean, I am spending the money to install CAT6, but I would like a warm fuzzy feeling that these runs were installed properly. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Jon
