SG TCP/IP Analyzer

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.

SG TCP Optimizer

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.

SG Security Scanner

The Security Scanner audits certain ports on your computer detecting potential vulnerabilities. A list of the currently scanned potential exploits can be found - here -.

Note: Some firewalls might log a potential attack from our server if you choose to test the security of your system since we are testing for vulnerabilities.

SG Speed Test

A bandwidth speed test, measuring both downstream/upstream line speed, as well as latency and jitter. Average speeds per provider are also available.

SG IP Address Search

IP address geolocation tool, also includes useful network tools such as whois, traceroute, latency check, email blacklist check (RBL databases), etc.

SG MAC Address OUI Search

SG MAC Address OUI lookup tool to find the manufacturer of your network adapter or IoT device.

SG Network Tools

The SG Network tools section includes many common network tools such as PING, TRACEROUTE, WHOIS, etc.

SG Bits/Bytes Conversion Calculator

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.

SG RWIN/BDP Calculator

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.

SG DSL Speed Calculator

The SG DSL Speed Calculator allows for estimating maximum ADSL/ADSL2+/VDSL attainable sync speeds based on downstream attenuation.

SG WLAN Key Generator

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.

SG Hash Generator

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.
