    We're moving into a new building in a few months. It's already wired, somewhat, but I don't know what kind of condition the last tenants left the phone and ethernet wiring in.

    I assume I'll have to trace out a good bit of cabling. What do you guys recommend I get to facilitate this adventure? I won't even be able to get into the place for a few weeks, as we're just in the early stages of buying the place.

    If you don't have the right equipment to do it you might as well start from scratch.
    Also is it worth you time to trace the wiring?

    It is easier to give birth than to resurect.

    Start from scratch.

    No no no. I'm just talking about identifying one cable out of a bundle. If I have a tone generator on the far end I should be able to pick it easy. I'm just looking for recommendations for whick brand/model to buy. (This place has hundreds of miles of cable ;P )

    Doh!

    I wish I could help you there. When my company moved to a smaller office we hired a company to come out and wire the office.

    Good Luck :)
