Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool for Windows XP/Vista


█▄█ ▀█▄ █

The Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool checks your Internet router to see if it supports certain technologies. You can use this tool on a PC running either the Windows Vista or Windows XP operating system. If you're planning to run Windows Vista, this tool can verify whether your existing Internet router supports advanced features, such as improved download speeds and face-to-face collaboration using Windows Meeting Space.

The tool is intended to be run from a home network behind a home Internet (NAT) router. Running this tool from behind a corporate firewall or on operating systems other than those specified above won't produce accurate results. This tool requires administrator privileges to run.

The tests can require up to 10 minutes to complete and do not make any permanent changes to your router. For the most accurate results, your computer should be connected directly to your Internet router, using a wired connection.

No surprise, but my RVS4000 passed with flying colors :)

hey nice find. Everything works fine except uPnP. I get this shhit:

The operating system is Windows Vista
The firewall is enabled
Exceptions are allowed by the firewall
UPnP is enabled by the firewall
UPnP services are running
UPnP Discovery is enabled
Detecting Internet Gateway Devices on the network
1 IGD(s) found
IGD Device Information:
Manufacturer Name : Netgear
Model Name : ADSL Firewall Router
Model Number : DG834
get_StaticPortMappingCollection() returned NULL IStaticPortMappingCollection
get_StaticPortMappingCollection() returned NULL IStaticPortMappingCollection
get_StaticPortMappingCollection() returned NULL IStaticPortMappingCollection
Failed to get port mapping from the IGD

Anyone got any ideas what I can do to fix this?

There's always the "check for router firmware updates".

I'm having UPNP test problems too even though my router says it supports it. I'll post back if I find a solution.

Got mine working :) but the test failed :( because it tries to create 10 new port mappings and my ancient linksys befsr11 only supports 5 remappable ports.

Look through your options on your router setup. Mine was defaulted to uPnP turned OFF. I turned it ON and then went to the Port Forwarding page which had a uPnP screen button. My uPnP screen showed 10 pre-mapped items (SMTP, TCP, etc) and 5 re-mappable. I had to assign internal IP addresses to the premapped ones and enable each one for them to work.

Hope that helps.
