Use "lanconf64e.efi" to measure the X710 10G Fiber signal (TX/RX), but something goes error

Excuse me, I want to measure the X710-BM2 (IC) 10G Fiber signal (TX/RX) and use "lanconf64e.efi" tool to set the settings But there will be many situations:

Tx: Only 10G_PRBS31 can be used for measurement. If you switch to other options (PRBS9/PRBS31/Square

Tx:
Only 10G_PRBS31 can be used for measurement. If you switch to other options (PRBS9/PRBS31/Square 8), the signal will disappear immediately.
Measuring DUT requires PRBS9 & Square 8 for measurement.
RX:
Unable to find suitable instructions for measurement (EX: DUT Loopback or read PRBS BER)
You can only see the BASE-T option in IEEE BER Test
Use BERT (test instrument) to drive the PRBS signal into the RX of the chip through the test fixture

And
We also encountered the same situation when measuring E810-XXVAM2 25G Fiber.

Any suggestions or a better testing tool?

Hi , Simon

1.System Model:

        CPU : Intel CPU (FHF)

       OS : Win 11

       Lan Controller : X710-BM2 (10G) , E810-XXVAM2 (25G)

 

2.Purpose of measuring the fiber signal:

When making a small board using these two ICs, it is necessary to measure the signal quality on the small board.

Please check this .

Any questions , please let me know .

Thank you
