Hi,

You can use this software to measure your bandwith here:

http://www.noc.ucf.edu/Tools/Iperf/default.htm

You run it on a client running over wireless nad another at a fixed terminal and you measure the bandwidth. This tool required a command interface so just start a command line and run the command. Command line options are simple and you can find them on the given link.

Cheers,
K.

Hi,

Below is the extended list of applications used to calculate the throughput;

Iperf           dast.nlanr.net/Projects/Iperf      Open-Source
ttcp      www.pcausa.com      Open-Source
Netperf      www.netperf.org      Open-Source
NetQoS      www.netqos.com      Propriety
Qcheck      www.netiq.com/Qcheck/default.asp      Propriety
simplenetsoftware      simplenetsoftware.com      Propriety
Bandwidth Meter      www.bandwidth-meter.net      Propriety

Personal recommendation is using either IPerf or QCheck. Ideally calculate the throughput from two independent applications and then find the common result.

QCheck is peer to peer. Means you Install QCheck on two machines on both ends and then run the test on both of them. IPerf is client-server. Means you need to run as client on one side and as server on the other side.

if either one of your PTP500s is connected to a smart/managed device, you can just poll information from that device via SNMP. you'll be able to get real time traffic info that way.
