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.

- Identify, monitor, and correct LAN issues
- 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)
