Thank you for the great Cable Test feature!

Its well worth it buying one of your routers just for that!

Add in the ability to mirror ports, making one a really good diagnostic tool...

I find the packet sniffer streaming works great. Not quite port mirroring, but close enough for what I need.

Isn't port mirroring supported in almost all the switch chips?

Oh nevermind, you meant this about the cable test:
This works on SXT-G, SXT Lite, RB711G, RB2011, RB750 series and other devices with the same switch chips, and also the Cloud Core series devices.

Right. The cable test, as the topic title suggests.

I went to the PITA of rebuilding wireshark from source and I must be making some very dumb mistake as I still have not been able to get streaming to WS on my main machine to work for me. I need to devote some quality time to figuring it out.
Once I have that running, I agree, I likely wont need to mirror ports. It would be especially useful because currently all my ports are tied up.
