    Anyone here can help me benchmark my broad band buis connection? I remember a command in windows to ping yahoo.com 50 times and it shows you a average in time or ping from you to to the server. I remember it being done in the run command screen.

    Also does anyone remember a web site where you can click test your connection and it makes a graph and shows your speed on a scale of 56k up to like 10mbs a second or so.

    If anyone can help me out with this I will be very grateful.

    I appologize if this is in the wrong forum I wasnt sure if this belong in networking or not.


    Thank You,

    don't use any of dslreports tools, DrTCP doesn't work with SP2, and is pretty useless regardless, Cablenut is by far the best window's internet tweaking tool.

    I thought all he wanted was connection speed .. didn't see anything about tweaking.

    In the U.K. there is www.adslguide.org.uk, that does exactly what is required.
    It does have a link to " outside UK" on the "Speed test" section.
    May help.
