Windows 10: Checking Wireless Network Speed- Herculian Task!
Checking Wireless Network Speed- Herculian Task!
Gone are the days when we could simply right click a connected wifi network and check the 'SPEED' of the network in mbps. For eg:-
...or simply goto Task manager and check the speed like:-
'Smart', 'Flawless' Windows 10 has moved a step ahead to make our lives simpler. To achieve the objective it has simply done away with the option of checking the network speed! One needs to be an Israeli hacker to check your network speed. Well am not that.
Is there a simple method to check network speed which i am missing? guys? pls help!
Go to control panel -> network and sharing center -> Click your network to bring up the connection status:
Here's mine below:
PS: I love my internet and WiFi
What you have listed is the max speed of the your network. In the first case it is a wireless G router. In the second it is the max speed of the Ethernet controller in your computer. The easiest way to check the network speed is using a site like speedtest.net. But remember that the actual throughput is 10% of what is stated. A 20 Mbs speed is really a download of 2Mbs. It's the external speed (connection) that is almost always the limiting factor.
Retired from the grind
What do you mean gone are the days. The Network info is still in the same place where it was, since Microsoft started to use the Network Sharing under Control Panel. Also you can go into Control Panel and get to the adapter that way.
There really is no need to check connection speed, unless you are having issues with signal dropping all of the time, because of interference or channel congestion.
