How can I see the speed between nodes in a small office network?
Posted on 2008-10-30
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?
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)
