Most people test the speed of the Internet connection at one point or another, usually using a website such as SpeedTest to do so. The speed of your Internet connection is obviously a big deal because it dictates how quickly you can download files and also has an impact on the quality of streaming video.
But do you know the speed of your home network? This is tested less often, and there is no easy-as-pie website set up to help you with doing a network speed test. There is a simple utility called LAN Speed Test (unrelated to the SpeedTest website) that can help you figure out your home network’s precise speed.
