Not knowing what you're looking for, I found one at a Microcenter that
tests continuity, mis-wiring and shorts for around $10.  And I also find
putting the connectors on a bitch.  And now some ham radio equipment uses
the same connectors for mic connectors.

Anyone have a preference for good but not overly expensive Ethernet
cable testers?  I don't want to spend $500 on a high-end Fluke, but I
don't want to spend $10 on some generic piece of crap that only tests
continuity either.  I've never really needed one until now, but I'm
finding cat6 to be a complete &@&#$@^#@%$R@#% to strip and terminate.
