Hi guys

We have a windows NT network supporting around 20pc's

is there an application or a way which i can tell at what speed the pc's are connecting to the network?

I need to prove a point that the network is running at 10mbps and not 100mbps as assumed by the top dogs

There's a drink in it for you guys if you can help me out

Cheers

Hmm, does NT have an option in the Network Control Panel to put an icon in the System Tray which shows your connection speed? All other MS OSes do...

Otherwise, does the Network Card on the back of the workstation have a light to show 10/100?? Or the switch usually has a light which changes color depending on what speed you're running....

Or it could be that your Network cards and/or switches/hubs are only capable of 10baseT. Look up the model # for either and see if that's the case.

I'll check my NT server in the morning if no one else has responded here....
