My house is Cat6 cabled for ethernet. I want to do some speed measuring.
- Below the stairs is a small server room for the router, DSL modem, a EEE-Box (ubuntu) and a LaCie-Nas used for Backups (TimeMachine).
- There are Linux (3), OS X (3), and Windows XP (1) machines on the lan
How would you go about testing LAN throughput in such an environment?
- Do I test the endpoints one by one, by lugging a laptop around
- can it be done at (or near) the router.
- is there a 'best practice' approach
