Internet DSL Speedtest

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

Speed.io is a modern DSL speedtest to analyze your broadband internet access. You find that your internet connection is too slow or you are just curious how fast you are – speed.io is a perfect tool for a fast speed check – worldwide.

speed.io measures your current internet speed to the nearest server (we have almost 50.000 server worldwide). We test your download (speed with which you receive data from internet), upload (speed with which you send data to the internet), connection test (maximal number of connections per minute) as well as ping (response time between your computer and the internet).

Monitor Your Monthly Bandwidth With Your Router

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

In the face of internet service providers like Comcast instituting bandwidth-capping, the Simple Help weblog details how to use a router running the open-source DD-WRT firmware to monitor your bandwidth. It’s actually very simple to do, requiring no work on your part aside from installing DD-WRT on your router. DD-WRT automatically tracks bandwidth, so from there it’s a matter of knowing where to look. If you’re running the user-friendly Tomato firmware (we also showed you how to install Tomato), you can easily access your daily, weekly, or monthly bandwidth as well.
