How to determine the TX Speed of networked printers
Posted on 2007-07-20
Is there a way to determine the data transfer rate of a networked printer? I work in a windows domain environment, and we have several networked printer throughout the office. Some are connected to external print servers, and others have embedded print servers. For the most part, I can print a configuration page from the printer's control panel, or by pressing a test button on the external print server, and the printout would tell me the TX speed. In other cases, the connection speed is stamped on the print server - 10BaseT for example. In other instances, there are no printouts to be obtained, or other way of determining the TX speed. I was wondering if there was some sort of command line program that could be run from a Windows XP command prompt to determine the TX speed, without having to walk around the building going printer to printer.
