    how to check the ISP bandwidth


    I'm using WiFi at home
    there is a wireless router which my laptop connects to

    I want to know the uplink and downlink bandwidth that the ISP provides to the wireless router

    are there any commands or tools that I can use to get the bandwidth value?
    thanks

    The best way is with a speed checker - there are several such sites, I use Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test from time to time. The actual speed provided by your ISP can vary depending on many factors, including distance from their equipment, so the speed you get isn't always what you think you're getting (unless you have some kind of SLA, of course, and they're quite expensive).
