Have you ever wondered “How can I test my coaxial cable to see if it’s in working order?”
If you are using the coax cable for Internet or TV services but need to troubleshoot your connection, you will need to determine if a valid signal from your Cable Internet or broadband provider is being carried by that cable.
Multimeter vs Coax Cable Tester
Multimeter – A multimeter measures voltage and it will determine if there is voltage present on your coaxial cable or outlets.
Coax Cable Tester – A coax cable tester will determine if you have an Internet or broadband signal carried to your coax wiring or coax outlets.
