    Your PC may well have a cable tester built in. Gigabit network interfaces from Intel (‘Diagnostics’ in the ‘Link Speed’ tab of the interface’s device manager window), Broadcom (‘Advanced Control Suite’), Marvell (‘Virtual Cable Tester’), and maybe others, can all include various diagnostics. These tools are specific to the network interface driver, as opposed to being seperate pieces of software; I don’t know if the Mac drivers offer similar functionality.

    Cheers

    I guess the termination of the connectors is the issue… as Jeff pointed out before…
    The networking guys control the simple settings and then the connectors if something is not working.

    Well, it doesn’t look as a proper solution for live event. I remember these laser systems been used for internet providers, they even had alignment compensation for wall thermal movements during the year, so beam would get to the receiver. Imagine smoke, vibration, hands up in the crowd, etc.

    I found out the wireless has to be off during Dante controller is launched otherwise remote unit (iDR) cannot be accessed. Once patching is done and DVS is running, recording software open and DVS status is connected, wifi can be enabled and has no further effect to Dante. Maybe I’m wrong in my observations, but so far there is nothing against that.
