Mm .. might try a demo copy of Colasoft's Capsa product. Wireshark is also well known. I prefer Colasoft 'cause it shows the entire network rather than just one machine.

I use NTttcp to do real-time bandwidth tests between Windows computers.  It can test TCP and UDP performance separately as well.
