Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics 22.214.171.124-signed
This extension includes a set of tools for broadband users. It can measure the bandwidth of Internet connections and perform diagnostic tests.
About this Add-on
1. Bandwidth measurement.
Open "Tools" menu and click the item "Bandwidth Meter". You can perform upload and download bandwidth measurement. It also shows your public IP address and public domain name.
2. Broadband troubleshooting.
When Firefox fails to load a webpage, the extension will automatically check whether Internet conennction is working or not. You can perform further diagnostic tests (ping, traceroute) or check the archived version of the failed webpage. Just try to type a non-existent domain name(e.g., qwqwqwq121212.com) to see this in action ...
3. Perform diagnostic tests on your PC
Use the diagnostic and configuration buttons to check connectivity with NIC card, local gateway, and websites and to display local IP configurations (IP address, MAC address, default gateway, DNS server, DHCP server etc).
1) This is a Window version of the extension. If you use Unix or MAC, please see https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/2450 (pending review)
2) For FF3 users, please use version 1.2.5 (under review): https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/2360 - it fixed all bugs for FF3.
Thanks for your comments and support.
Bandwidtth tends to fluctuate depending on how many people are on the net. It will almost NEVER be as much as your ISP advertises.
The diagnostics and configuration display only work on Windows (tested on XP and 2000).
If you have trouble using this extension or your speedtest result is not what you expected, please post your questions/comments on the support forum: http://www.gotomyhelp.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=18
