I have a 2 buildings about 25 metres apart and there is a cat5 ethernet cable encased in a pipe between the 2 buildings. Just suddenly the connection stopped working. If I test the cable with a Molex SLT3S connectivity tester I see all the pairs light up fine. But the interesting thing is that if I connect the cable into a network device such as a switch I don't see the connection light light up.
Can you suggest any tool to troubleshoot further? Any ideas on what could cause this? What should be my next steps?
