    Here's a decent bandwidth checking site http://www.2wire.com/ just click on speed meter at the top of the webpage

    As far as you router slowing down your connection, you never truly use your entire bandwidth. unless you put in a higher speed network card, 100 is probably what your network card is rated at as well.
