Connectivity Analyzer from Nokia Beta Labs!

| November 28, 2010 | 8 Replies

Hey all, it’s been a while since i’v properly blogged on “My Nokia Blog” but as I no longer have time to post as much as i’d like to on my own TheTekBlogger.com, I thought Jay wouldn’t mind me posting here!

One of the recent creations from the people over at Nokia Beta Labs yet again helps us to solve an issue that I’m sure we have all had at one point or another…”Why won’t my phone connect….AAAGGGHHHH”.

“Connectivity Analyzer” from Nokia Beta Labs does exactly what it says on the tin, it tries to figure out well (or not so well) your phone connects to either a Wireless LAN in your home or somewhere else, or Packet Data connections through the mobile network of your choice.

Here is what the developers have to say about it:

Nokia Connectivity Analyzer

Do you have hard times to understand why your WLAN connection is not working at home? Nokia Connectivity Analyzer provides three kinds of utilities to diagnose and analyze WLAN and Packet Data connections.

Connectivity Diagnostics Test

With a couple of clicks the application connects to a selected access point and performs a diagnostics test. In case of any problems with the connectivity, you are informed about it with troubleshooting tips.

Connection Observer

This graphical presentation of WLAN and packet data connectivity and events releated to it helps you to analyze WLAN networks and how roaming is performed e.g. when using VoIP. The gathered data can be stored into a .csv file for further analysis. More advanced users and application developers can also capture the IP traffic of the device into a pcap file.

Ping Utility

This utility helps you to perform ICMP-Echo ping tests to a given hostname or IP address. With this feature it is easy to test IP connection to a selected destination.

    I’d like to know the how my N8 could get connected, I don’t need to know the why my N8 wouldn’t connect while everything else could on the same wifi.

    When I first got my N8, it worked with my office wifi for a week then it stopped working yet everything else was still working with the same wifi fine. I triple checked the wifi router settings, had rebooted the wifi and the N8, reset the N8, deleted the AP settings and reselected them on the N8, nothing worked. I replaced the wifi router with a new one and then it works.

    Boggles the mind.

    I could not test the software on a Nokia N78 because of an expired security certificate in the installer. Does it include some tcpview like features like open connection list and/or state with srcIP, destIP, srcPort, destPort, connection state?
