you need the tool as its the industry standard to make/create the connection between the pins and copper wire of the cable.

You could try squeezing the connector really hard with your fingers.

Failing that, get the crimper.

Ok. Is there any other way i could test the cables without the tester?

Can i connect a laptop to router and ping it? If so how do I ping it?

providing your router is giving out dhcp then yes.

connect the cable

Start > run > cmd > ipconfig / all - look for default gateway - this will normally be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

then type ping 192.168.X.X replace XX with the ip address of your router.

await the response.

What you want is called a punch down tool. You can get a cheap disposable punch down tool from eBay that will be OK if you only want to crimp a very small number of cables.

If you open "Network Connections" under "Control Panel" it shows the status of each ethernet port as connected/disconnected. Also the router may have a LED next to each port that lights up when a cable is inserted.
