Resistor RJ45 Tester

This is a simple network cord tester that uses just 8 unique resistors. The values/wattage doesn’t matter as long as the meter can read them. They should be in the kiloohm range. I have made an Excel spreadsheet file that you can enter all 8 of the resistors and get the total parallel resistance. The pins are listed as binary 1s and 0s. J1 and J2 are the RJ45 connectors. I even entered the ones I’m using. It doesn’t tell you if it’s a patch cord, crossover or rollover, but tells you if the pins used on the cord are making connection. To tell what type of cord it is just look at the 2 ends.
