How can I see the speed between nodes in a small office network?

Hello I am running a small office network for 5 laptop users comprising a DLink DWL-2100AP wireless access point, which is then connected by ethernet to a 4 port combined router/switch with ADSL modem combined, Netcomm Router Modem Netcomm NB9W.
Coming off the router switch are a networked printer and a NAS.
The ADSL link runs at 15 Mbps to our modem. But to a computer we only see 1.5 Mbps. Its possible that there are wifi clashes or that the router/modem can't actually handle the volume of traffic.
i am about to upgrade to a seperate 24port switch and then run each laptop over ethernet connections. But I want to make sure that this will solve my speed problems.
Is there an application that I can run that shows me the speeds between each node in the network?
eg:
Speed from my laptop to the wifi point
Speed from the wifi point to the router/modem
Speed from the router modem to the *internet* (a remote server site somewhere)
Thanks

1) Most APs come with some internal reporting that will tell you the signal strength, etc which would be your main problem. Also at what wireless standard is the device connecting? IE: 80211a/b/g/n?

2) Best bet would be to connect via ethernet directly to the modem and try a site like speedtest.com

3) As above.

thanks, but I was hoping for a diagnostic that would directly tell me the speed of each link
