I have a remote office that was having connection problems between rooms. I discovered that
it was better than 400 feet between 2 ethernet switches. A guy that does audio video cable said he could take care of it and run fiber optic with media converters in between my 2 switches.
We purchased 2 Allied Telesyn AT-MC101XL media converters and he installed them with fiber optic.
The connection does not appear to be correct.
Can I check the function of the fiber optic and the media converters by simply using two small patch cables and my RJ 45 cable tester.
Any help and a fast response would be greatly appreciated. If I am correct then , I could save myself about 4 hours of driving to correct this problem in the morning.
Thanks in advance
