Internet speed test

Fri Aug 02, 2013 10:34 pm

Hi everyone

I would like to be able to test my internet speed(ADSL connection) from my RB. Is there a way to do this without using a 2nd RB or PC? So is there like a Google server or something you can run a test to?

Also which is better TCP or UDP?

Many thanks

speedtest.net or speedtest.comcast.net.

Most DSL providers have their own speedtest page

Hmmmmm....I'm also looking for this feature, the reason behind it is ...I want to build a intelligent loadbalancer that can fine tune the scale of 50/50 on 2 lines to other % by testing the line speed of each line and then applying the % so that 100% of the total capacity can be distributed to all users. can be useful is so many ways, another reason is, if you have a up to 7meg line and a up to 2meg line, then it can super fine tune itself.

you can use the tool Fetch
>tool fetch
and after that u need to write the URL of the file u wanna download, find a link from your isp and try to download it using the router.
