For a long time Roon has suffered from dropped connections which I generally put down to high demands on the network from Roon (retrieving metadata, controlling many zones etc) or application problems.
However, I recently found an intermittent ethernet socket fault and since clearing it the whole network & Roon experience has improved drastically but it still isn’t as good as I would like!
I am now considering purchasing an ethernet network tester that will indicate high resistance connections (the type that might impede data flow rather than stop it completely ) my previous fault was visibly good but re-terminating cured the problem, so there was a voltage drop across the joint. I already have a, cheap, continuity/ping tester which didn’t find any problems.
So, can anyone recommend an Ethernet network tester that will “do the job” but not not cost a fortune. I am considering £150 maximum but would prefer less if possible.
Thanks in anticipation.
