Anyway I can setup my Sonicwall Firewall to automatically run a speedtest @ 2am daily, turning off the LAN during that test so I can have a HISTORIC record of speeds ?

http://testmy.net/auto?extraID=A&schType=&st=1&r_time=0.1666667&xtimes=5&minDFS=&minUFS=
allows me to test every 10 minutes, but I really just want one test @ 2am daily, logged somewhere so I have record

That's not possible. The Sonicwall itself would not have a way to be able to do this. You need a browser in order to make this run, so there is no way to do this. If you have a switch or some way to connect directly to your modem outside of the Sonicwall, it would satisfy part of what you'd like. If you have a computer going from behind the Sonicwall, it gives a somewhat fairer idea, even though the Sonicwall filters and NAT would actually cause a lower speed to show up than what you may really be getting.

Have you tried doing any speed optimizing of the Sonicwall itself?
