Speed tests will only show what connection speed is and not show what is the max mbps that can be utilized by  the device, so you need to check the hardware capability.
For any desktop/laptop SIW is a free computer system information tool.
Download from

For a mobile it is wireless and can be tested with: WiFi Speed Test
what device are you talking about?
if you buy it, the specs should tell you what you want

any standard tool/app that anyone can run to find out the max capability of their wifi.. (if it can handle upto 1 or 10 or 100 or 1000 Mbps and so forth)

if they are running, use speedtest :
if you want SIW best download it from the maker's site :      -- no malware there

and, as i said  for "desktop/laptop/mobile device"  the specs will have the info you need
if that is not what you want - tell us what you want
@ nobus
No malware in SIW downloaded from my Link:
I have scanned & used it myself.
Also it is a non install version of SIW that runs only one time when executed.

Also I agree that for "desktop/laptop/mobile device"  the specs will have the info you need.
But sometimes the specs can be false especially on Chinese devices.
i always try to give the original download link - it always reduces the risk of other software  intrusions
Good point for sites that confuse what is actually the correct download tab.
