Windows LAN Speed

By somarr99 ·
I am looking for a utility to tell me
what speed I am negotiating at (ie.
100Mbs/Full Duplex). Some network
drivers provide this functionality but
most do not. Our systems are running
Windows NT/2000.

Thanks in advance.

Check the back of the computer for this indication. Where the network cable plugs into the computer is a NIC (Network Interface Card). It should have stamped labels next to the LED (Light Emitting Diodes) indicators. One will be for a Link, another will show the speed of connection. If you see 3 lights lit, then you are at 100 Mb/s. A quick glance is faster than any utility.

My above two colleagues are totally correct, in addition, on Windows 2000 computers, you can right click on My Network Places, right click on Local Area Connection and click on properties, Check the ?Show icon in taskbar when connected? box and if you point at the small icon that looks like two overlapping computers and do not click on it, it will show you what speed you are connected at.
