Well there are many  web sites  you can  goto and  test your  internet speed

http://bandwidthplace.com/


Depending on your  Router you can look  at  your  DHCP Client list  and see what  the mac address of  any  systems  currently  using the internet connection.

If  you only want  to give access to the  computers in your home   you can  either turn on  WEP ( wireless Encription )  or Filter by Mac addresses

Hi
Try out this option, to check out your line speed you can do an on-line test at http://www.dslreports.com/stest?loc=97 this will give your line speed and some recommendations. To continuously monitor your line speed use something like “onlinEye pro v 1.2.0” this is the current version, well to monitor users is a bit of a tricky thing that deepens on your router, use some thing like “webboy” to monitor traffic on the LAN with this you can also identify users and the sites they are accessing and lot of other info.
The best is if you can spare a pc with  proxy software you can do wonders with your DSL then.

Hop this helps
