Alternative to Quality Monitor


[link to this post]
 
I have a dynamic connection and wonder if there is an alternative to Quality Monitor, which works only with a static connection.
I have tried RouterStats which is a great application but does not work with my new BT Homehub 3 router.

Thanks.

HomeHub3 does not respond to ICMP echo from the Internet anyway

I am no expert in these matters, but my router works for ping and tracert. Doesn't that show it responds to ICMP echo?

Outbound yes fine, but inbound the HomeHub 3 does not respond to pings

One way around this is to connect a device that does respond to pings, to the HH3 and put it in the DMZ.

Thanks, but what sort of device? And what is a DMZ?
Seems there is the only way to continuously monitor the line speed would be to get a router that is compatible with routerstats.

Or you can trying signing up for a Samknows whitebox here https://www.samknows.eu.

This monitors your connection from inside your network and gets a completely different picture of quality.

Of course - you measure different things you get different results ..........
