SG Broadband Tools
The SpeedGuide TCP/IP Analyzer is a program designed to display your Internet connection parameters, extracted directly from TCP packets sent by your browser to our server. The Analyzer program then displays recommendations based on the settings extracted from the headers of those packets.
The TCP Optimizer is a free Windows program designed to help optimize your Internet connection. The program makes it easy to find the best MaxMTU value, test latency and tweak the important Registry Parameters. The Optimizer can be helpful with tuning any Internet connection type, from dialup to Gigabit+ :) If you need help with the program, check the TCP Optimizer Documentation, read our broadband tweaking articles and the related FAQs, and/or visit our Forums.
The SpeedGuide.net Security Scanner audits certain ports on your computer detecting potential vulnerabilities.
A list of the currently scanned potential exploits can be found - here -.
A bandwidth speed test, measuring both downstream/upstream line speed at the time. Average speeds per provider are also available.
The SG IP Address locator finds the geographical location of IP address or hostnames, and includes a number of useful network tools, like whois, traceroute, Spam source lookup, latency check, etc.
The SG Network tools section includes many common network tools such as PING, TRACEROUTE, WHOIS, etc.
The Bits/Bytes calculator is a useful tool for quickly converting bits/bytes, etc. It takes into consideration the different conventons while calculating data communication rates and storage space.
The RWIN/BDP calculator can be used to estimate TCP Window values, based on the Bandwidth*Delay Product (BDP for short). It can also calculate maximum bandwidth based on RWIN and latency values, and perform a number of different conversions as well.
The SG DSL Speed Calculator allows for estimating maximum ADSL/ADSL2+/VDSL attainable sync speeds based on downstream attenuation.
The WLAN Key generator is a tool for generating random or custom WEP, as well as WPA/PSK keys. The tool helps generate strong keys that are less prone to dictionary attacks, and can be used as a learning tool as well.
The Hash generator is a tool that helps convert your sensitive data into hashes, using various popular one-way hasing algorithms, including md4, md5, sha1, sha256, sha512, crc32, ripemd, whirlpool, haval, etc.
