Is there any way to check bandwidth?

Post by sak » Thu Jul 28, 2011 3:46 pm

hello there,

I am a newbie to dsl fraternity. I using a shared connection with my cousin. It was working fine up untill now but now he has shared it with a third person. Even after that it worked fine but these days the speed has slowed down to dial up level. Is there any way to measure what speed i am getting from the router? so that i can confirm that its the third person who is causing the problem.

Just recently some one has cut the wire on the roof and i had to install an Ethernet to Ethernet connector in order to over that problem.

so whats the problem? the connector or the third person??

Can you not check by a process of elimination?
ie. get the third party to disconnect and see if your speed improves? The third party could well be using torrents in a big way.
