An advanced tool for network diagnostics, LAN scanning, and problem detection.
Network Analyzer can help you diagnose various problems in your wifi network setup, Internet connectivity, and also detect various issues on remote servers thanks to the wide range of tools it provides.
It is equipped with a fast wifi device discovery tool, including all the LAN device's addresses and names, together with the Bonjour/DLNA services they provide. Further, Network Analyzer contains standard diagnostic tools such as ping, traceroute, port scanner, DNS lookup, whois, and Internet speed test. Finally, it displays various useful information related to your wifi/cell connection.

• Wake on LAN (WOL) including remote WOL
• Scan of custom IP ranges
• Filtering and search in the discovered device list
PING & TRACEROUTE
• Round trip delay including IP address and hostname for every network node
• Geolocation data including latitude, longitude, country, city, and time zone

• Scanning the most common ports or user-specified port ranges
• Detection of closed, firewalled, and open ports
• Description of the known open port services
• Scan of complete port range or user-editable common ports
• Both IPv4 and IPv6 - selectable
• Whois of domains, IP addresses and AS numbers
• Functionality similar to nslookup or dig
• Support of ANY, A, AAAA, CAA, CNAME, HINFO, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, SPF, SRV, SSHFP, TXT records
• Decoding and showing DNSSEC records such as DNSKEY, CDNSKEY, RRSIG, NSEC3PARAM, NSEC, NSEC3, DS, CDS, TLSA
• Test of both download and upload speeds
• Graphical speed test view
• Speed test history
• Default gateway, external IP (v4 and v6), DNS server, HTTP proxy
• Wifi network information such as SSID, BSSID, IP address, and subnet mask
• Cell (3G, LTE) network information such as IP address, network provider, MCC, MNC
• Monitor of wifi, cell and VPN data usage (both sent and received data since the last boot)
LOCAL SERVICE DISCOVERY
• Bonjour service browser
• UPnP/DLNA service and device browser
• Full IPv6 support everywhere
• History of all performed tasks with the possibility to star the favorite ones
• Export by email, AirPrint, and AirDrop for most tools
• Copy/paste support
• Detailed help
• Regular updates, support page
• Fix crash when performing export on iPad
• Add export to CSV
• Add the possibility to show all DNS sections (answer, authority, additional) in DNS query
• Add the possibility to configure custom whois server
• Show information about all available network interfaces on the Information page
• Show IPv6 prefix lengths on the Information page
• Many minor fixes and stability improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Great until Apple’s iOS 11 restrictions
This is a good tool for WiFi geek types like myself. Handy IT networking tool for Pre iOS 11. This is not the fault of the developer. In iOS 11, apps can no longer access MAC addresses in the ARP table. I’m not sure what other limitations this application now has on my 8 Plus. There are some things that are missing, mainly signal strength and signal to noise ratio as well as the noise floor. It would also be nice if it reported the channel of the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. Your iPhone or iPad is on one so the hardware knows, but Apple may not allow access to this information.
I Recommend This and System Status Together
I can’t tell you how many times this app (and System Status by the same Developer Jiri Techet) have helped me troubleshoot problems over the years.
I must open these apps about 5 - 10 times per day just to get an idea of things like:
• when did I last restart my device?
• how much data has my device processed?
• how is my network connection?
I’ve been an iPhone owner since the Day One release of iPhone One. That’s like 11 years of using these devices!
One of the many things I’ve learned?
You’re far better off being proactive and keeping your device running smoothly than having to contact Apple support.
When you’re really screwed and can’t figure it out yourself? God Bless Them! But I can’t understand why anyone in their right mind would needlessly waste so much time?!
Overall it is great!
There are a few things missing such as Wi-Fi channel, width, signal strength/noise, mode, and bitrate. Also would like to see cellular band, bitrate, tower info. No Bluetooth nor NFC info either. Chances are Apple's API does not disclose any of that, though their hidden Field Test and AirPort Utility Wi-Fi Scan do disclose some. Apple should let the user decide through selectable permissions like those for camera, microphone, location access, etc.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
