If you are experiencing issues with your Internet connection, you may want to check your connection at its source first, before you call your Cable Internet provider. Checking your internet connection is a fairly simple process, and it can help you determine what other issues may be at play.
To determine if your internet is connecting properly, you need to test the coax cable outlet or wiring and signal. By testing for signal, you are ensuring that your Internet is signal is being properly received from your Cable Internet provider. While this testing may sound complex, the DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester makes it easy so anyone can perform this very easy and accurate test.
The DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester is built with simplicity and efficiency in mind. The compact design makes it fit into tight or hard-to-reach areas, and it even gives you connectivity results in less than 10 seconds. Many other testers use voltage to test connectivity, but not the DSS-01. The DSS-01 detects signals by identifying a specific range of frequency signals that only Cable Internet providers use, so you won’t receive false-positive readings like the other testers using voltage. It also works regardless of if you have known or even hidden splitters on your line, giving you the most accurate reading possible.
The DSS-01 Coax Cable Tester is not only easy to use, it is also easy to read. Once plugged in, the DSS-01’s bright, easy-to-read LED-light indicator will either display red or green. If the LED-light is red, no signal was detected, but if it is green, that means a valid signal was detected. When a valid signal is detected and you are still experiencing connectivity issues, there may be larger issues at play and you may need to contact your Cable Internet provider.
Determining whether your internet is successfully connected can put an end to glitchy Zoom meetings and dropped Facetime calls. The DSS-01 is perfect for those who self-install their cable modem, or for Cable Installers or Field Technicians who need an accurate and easy-to-use tool for testing an Internet connection.
