Network speed test

Hi community.  I was wanting to do a speed test of the devices on my network.  I am suspicious of a 100meg device on a network like a switch or router.  What could I use to test the speed of my network?

try using networx (freeware) or dumeter (free for 15 days) to find out the download and update rate in a computer.

There is a pretty decent article over at smallnetbuilder.com.  It gives a list of a few pieces of software that you can use to test internal network speeds. Hopefully something there will be able to do what you are looking to do...

Setup a FTP server and ftp a fairly large file (200 - 300 MB) to and from the FTP server is the simplest and easiest.
