Philex Network Cable Tester
Got it Sorted!
A great device, very good value. So easy to use and exactly the answer to finding wiring faults IMMEDIATELY! If you haven't got one, I'd recommend that you do!

Sorry about this
I think that I have been unlucky.
I bought one of these units and it was faulty. Lights 4 and 5 on the remote unit came on together even when used with a known good cable. Returned it to my local branch (Reading) and they replaced it without question. The second one also had a fault in that neither lights 2 nor 3 would illuminate on the remote unit. I secured a refund on that one without question although I had taken the necessary kit to the branch to prove the fault.
Five stars for the Screwfix customer service (as usual) but I will go out of my way to avoid Philex kit in the future, hence the one star rating.
I finally got a functional LAN tester from another supplier which worked first time and it was a few pence cheaper. Slightly better constructed as well. Screwfix may wish to review selling Philex kit.

A Must-Have device when wiring ethernet/telecoms yourself. An excellent value, easy to use, reliable tester in its own protective case; comes with intelligable instructions too!
