List of Major IP Addresses Blocks By Country

Nirsoft, the creators of WirelessKeyView, software which can help you get your Wireless Keys in case if you have forgotten them, have now released the Major IP Addresses Blocks by Country. 

For countries in europe and in the middle east, the name of the company/Internet provider that own these IP blocks is also displayed. In order to show only the major IP blocks, only IP blocks with 4096 addresses or more were added to the list. For United States, only IP blocks with 65536 addresses or more were added to the list.

You can access the complete list on Nirsoft’s Website.

What is an IP Address? How can i find my IP Address?

IP Address is in short, the address of your computer. Using this address it is identified over the internet and your local network. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country- or region-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the location from which a computer is connecting to the Internet.

If you are interested to know your IP Address, read What’s your IP Address?

 

How to Use this List? Can you give some Example Usages?

Well, to take practical scenarios, First example to take from this list is that it can be used to identify the location of a particular IP. This could be the IP of the person who sent you a mail on your Yahoo Mail account or IP of the person who sent you a mail on your Gmail account

The other example usage can be testing your web application for geo-targeting. If you have a web application which geo-targets content based on the end user’s IP address, you can use any of the IP Address listed against the country of your choice and test your Web Application. This can be done by enabling and Modifying the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP Request. To do this, you can either use Fiddler or Modify HTTP Headers.  

The X-Forwarded-For (XFF) HTTP header is a de facto standard for identifying the originating IP address of a client connecting to a web server through an HTTP proxy or load balancer. This is a non-RFC-standard request header which was introduced by the Squid caching proxy server’s developers.

Also, if you are a geek, you can develop your own script to figure out the location of a particular IP Address using the IP Address Blocks given in the list released by Nirsoft.

Can you List any other website which helps me find the location of a given IP Address?

Yes. Try out IP2Location

Are you also one of those who feel that their router is getting old and needs to be replaced, just because their are more fancier routers available.

Check your routers capabilities using Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool

Check your routers capabilities using Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool

Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool is a freebie which lets you run specific tests against your router and figure out what all the router supports. Apart from other tests, Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool runs Basic Internet Connectivity Test, NAT Test, TCP optimizations test, Traffic congestions test.

Though these tests give you a fair idea about the capabilities of your router, its always good to have a few things at the back of your head before you actually start blaming your router

1.) How good is your Internet Broadband speed? If the internet broadband speed itself is slow, the router cannot do much.

2.) Is your router’s firmware up-to-date? If not, visit your router manufacturers website and look for a firmware upgrade. You can also try Tomato.

3.) Is your laptop or desktop safe from virus and spy-wares. Spy-wares can clog your bandwidth if they are good enough to send data back to the origin. Learn more about top 3 free antivirus and anti spyware software.

4.) Check out the default password list for various routers. This can come handy in situations where you are locked out and the only thing you can bet on is Default Password.

5.) Keep your Router’s security upbeat. As WPA also has been compromised, learn how to stay safe from the WPA Encryption crack.

With the above points and the tests results in front of you, you can certainly be sure if you need a new router or not. Also, in case if you have forgotten the key of your router, WirelessKeyView from Nirsoft can help you get access to your old keys.
