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?

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.

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