I know that QOS is available to prioritize network bandwidth but is there anything stock standard available in Windows 2000 to display what speed client computers are utilizing the network and the internet at?

    Right click "network neighborhood, properties, then advanced in the menu, then optional networking components, then click the Management and Monitoring Tools, click next, have your windows XP CD inserted, and complete this addition.  There are a lot more tools available for server OSs, but this one is standard with windows XP, and it is fairly useful, actually, except people don't know about it.  That is the main "stock" tool that comes with XP.  You can get onto MS and find more, as well as other free utilities.
