Seems to work OK although I'm far from a technical sophisticate; I just want a basic overview of how my internet connections function but $50 for it IS rather a kick in the nuts.
I might pay 15-$20 for it but $50? No way in Hell!

This program is painful. Not only is it a Java app, making it slow and in some cases ugly, the user interface is designed for a 4-year-old instead of a network professional. The important statistics are hard to get to or in many cases, completely unavailable.

If you're looking for a program help find network problems and show you real network information to help you resolve problems, don't buy this.

If you're looking for a program that will show a pretty picture of a map, a guess as to where IPs are located, and just barely scratch the surface of a network, this may be for you.

slow...feels like a java app.

With 4-5 tabs open it really slows down, and when it gets slow it crashes.

I have now crashed a fresh install about 10 times. When I use it I have to be mindful of not going to quickly, as the app will become overwhelmed and confused.

It's pricey, but if it was rock solid, with a zippy interface, it would be worth it.

As others have mentioned, there are many free alternatives that have the same basic features. But VisualRoute might be a good product for those who find Mac OS X's Network Utility to be overly technical. That isn't to say VisualRoute is easier to use -- it's just difficult in other ways. On several occasions, I found the interface confusing or poorly implemented. For example, after running a traceroute, it wouldn't let me view the entire contents of the "Analysis" pane. VisualRoute feels more like a clunky Windows app than an elegant Mac app. The Preference menu isn't even in the proper place. On the plus side, the geo mapping feature is neat. With an interface overhaul and a steeply discounted price, this could be a very nice tool. Until then, I'll stick with freebies like Network Utility and WhatRoute (which also has a mapping feature).

Why not just use the network utility that comes with os x?

Visual Route does at least one very useful thing that network utility does not....

plotting traceroutes and saving data. this is very useful for watching a certain router over a period of time, rather than just seeing if something can be pinged.

Peanut Butter's comment is the only reason I can think not to but $50. No thanks. Surely there is a solution to do this for free.

this app is nice, and presents a comprehensive listing of data. Admittedly it appears simple at first, but having a wealth of data at your finger tips is quite a time saver. I would say it's painfully overpriced still :\

Am I missing something? $40?

Apple provides the 'Network Utility' in your Utilities folder that does all this. Why am I going to pay $40 for this?
