hi. is there a program that measures how fast you are currently connected to the internet (actual reading)? i maybe connected to a 100Mbps or 54 or 11 but this is the transfer rate, right, not the speed connection to the internet? how would i know if i am really just connected to the internet between 2-4 Mbps? thanks.

No that's the connection speed, I would guess, you have to your router (100 wired, 54 and 11 wireless). There are some speed test sites, but I never found them very accurate. But at least they give som indication. Here in Sweden there's a program called TPTest that works very well, but I don't think it gives accurate results outside Sweden.

If you are on Windows, and that box is the only box using bandwidth, you could use software like DuMeter or Bandwidth Monitor Pro.

i tried that site, but im connected through my school network so will it show me the network speed or the actual connection?
It will show the top speed of the slowest part of the network between you and the test servers. That is usually your connection.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
