Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A BERT tester might be overkill for what you need. I would recommend a packet capture and analysis tool like <a href=”http://www.wireshark.org”>Wireshark</a>. This will permit you to capture data on the link and see what is happening at several layers.
