    How to check internet speed?

    Hi,

    I am on Fedora 7 32 bit, but can any one tell me the command that can be typed in a terminal in order to check the speed of the internet connection?

    Thanks...

    Try:

    Code:
     
    ethtool eth0
    mii-tool eth0
    That will give the link speed. Do you want the maximum download speed from your ISP?

    The second command does not work. I want to know all about the speed such as download speed and actual speed as provided by the ISP. Thanks a lot....

    Try the Speed Test website. It has a simple browser based test.

    Hello here in the uk our ISPs quote our speed but it never seems that accurate. I use stuff like speed test to give me some idea.

    Ehh...sameface, those first three are all essentially the same test

    The CNET test is seriously borked BTW, not even close to my actual rates
