Findin' cat-5 ain't easy...


Does anyone have a wire tracer? You know, the kind where you plug a box into the wall, and it sends a tone down the wires that you can pick up by waving around a wand in the wiring closet?

I've found every phone closet in this @#$% building (and it's not a small building), but I've only found one of the network wiring closets. I'm starting to think I'm nuts, and the network wires actually terminate in the phone closets, despite a complete lack of anything that looks like ethernet wiring in them. But that one network closet with proper 19" racks and standard ethernet patch panel makes me think otherwise...
