How to use MTR & WinMTR

For Windows Users

In this article, we’ll cover how to use winMTR on Windows.

winMTR is the Windows ported version of MTR or My Traceroute program. Developed by Appnor MSP, it is free to use.

We start by getting winMTR from here. You’ll want to enter the IP that you want to run MTR to, in the Host field, and you can click on “Start” for quick use. For additional customization, click on “Options” button.

winMTR Interface


In the Options menu, there are 4 options, from Interval (between MTRs), size of the ping packets, and the maximum hosts in the LRU list or maximum hops shown in your GUI.

winMTR Options

Hit OK, after you’re done customizing, and enter IP in Host Field and hit Start.

This will create a list of hops leading to the destination IP and will show any packetloss as well as latencies to that destination.

For macOS Users

MTR is a open source tool that combines traceroute + ping. You can get it for linux on numerous sites but it is primarily maintained on GitHub where you can download the latest one.

The 3 Best Hybrid Laptops of 2016

Looking at the market, so after researching some indepth reviews, I categorized what I believe to be some of the best hybrids on the market as of Oct, 2016.

The three best hybrid laptop/tablets are

  1. HP Spectre x360
  2. Samsung ATIV Book 9 Spin
  3. Lenovo Yoga 900

When you go for a laptop for this category, you’ll want to take a look at a comfortable screen size, and less heat so you won’t burn your hands while holding it. The 13inch is probably most relevant and appropriate in display size. The Spectre is said to have the best build and design, while heat issues, and sturdy has stood out as common issues (for tablet mode). The Samsung Spin has been said to be a great contender, but graphics card seems to be a limiting factor. Yoga 900 while it may not have a attractive build, it certainly has a well known brand with great build form factor and size perfect for tablet mode.

The biggest things to watch out in this market is Optane-equipped laptops (faster than SSDs) with Kaby Lake (the new processor with a margin of minor performance gain). These are expected to hit the market in 2017.
