Software to test uptime and speed?

I have a DSL connection that I want to use for business purposes.  However before I move critical apps over to the DSL line, I want to test that the connection stays up and over a certain speed for a period of time.  Is there any shareware/freeware software that will do this?

    Try PRTG traffic monitor. THis uses SNMP. I assume your router has support for SNMP?

    Try this and maybe you can get the stats from it.

    hope it works for you! :-)
