How can I test a cat 6 cable

What kind of equipment can I use to JUST test a cat 6 cable? I do not want anything fancy. I had to run a new cable because I was told the cable had to be bad. Then I found out the camera did not work all the time.

If you're a hobbyist you can get two RJ45 jacks and use an ohmmeter.
Otherwise there are dozens of inexpensive cable testers.
