The best way is to use Iperf. Iperf is a tool to measure the bandwidth and the quality of a network link Here you have detailed tutorial - http://openmaniak.com/iperf.php

besides iperf there is netio http://www.ars.de/ars/ars.nsf/docs/netio.

Problem with copying large files is that esp. on laptops the bandwidth of a disk is much lower then wire speed. Also you get reported the transferred size while the actual transferred data (including Protocol Overhead) can be 10% larger.

Network speed should be adapter -> adapter speed that is measured without additional overhead of disks, disk controllers, filesystems caching etc. etc.

it's about an internal network, so referencing some external site won't help.
