WiFi Speed Test for Android


This program is designed for WiFi Speed Test for Android application for server side of local computers.

If you have never heard about this program, you can find more details and information in my blog: https://pzoleeblogen.wordpress.com/2013/11/26/wifi-speed-test-for-android-how-to/


How to use it:

  • Download and start wifi_speed_test_server.exe
  • if you start it in a cmd window, you can get the help using this command: wifi_speed_test_server.exe --help

If it does not start, you may need to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package too.

Alternative solution if you are using Linux-based operating system:

Running the python-based verson:

python wifi_speed_test_server.py
  • You can download Python from here: http://www.python.org/download/

  • If you have Python 2.x installed, start this file: wifi_speed_test_server.py

  • If you have Python 3.x installed, start this file: wifi_speed_test_server_python3.py

Only one thing is left, you should start WiFi Speed Test application on your mobile device and connect to your computer running wifi_speed_test_server. The simpliest way is to click on browse button to find the server. If it does not work then use this method:

To get the the local IP address of this computer, just execute the following command: ipconfig and get the value of "IP Address" field (on local network this IP address should be in either 192.168.X.X or 10.X.X.X form).

Example (in this example you should give the as server in the WiFi Speed Test application. If you don't find this settings just scroll down in the application.):
