Collaborative Home Network Troubleshooting

Abstract : The web browser has emerged as a promising vantage point for measuring the internet edge. Browsers allows for platform-independent measurements on a large variety of platforms such as laptops, smartphones and tablets and they make the usage of measurement utilities easier as web applications do not require installation. In the past browsers' capabilities for measurements were limited but recent technologies such as WebRTC offer promising new possibilities. In this thesis , first, various web technologies are tested for their feasibility for delay measurements to targets such as the home router, Internet servers and other devices in the home network. Second, the most suitable technologies with the lowest overheads are used to create a prototype of a web based measurement tool which utilizes collaboration between end user devices in the home and lets them perform delay measurements together. After performing a measurement, the utility evaluates the quality of the wireless connection to the home router and gives the user feedback about the user's de-vices' Internet connectivity.
