Is there a way to detect network connection speed?

    I work on a network of a few hundred computers connected with a myriad of switches, hubs and servers. Our connections range from 10Mb/s to 1Gb/s. Is there any way I can create a report of all the connected computers on the subnet and how fast each is connected?

    Ideally it would say something like:
    (Computer Name) 100Mb/s
    (Computer Name) 10Mb/s
    ... ...

    Basically, I'm trying to figure out which computers are still on slower connection so we remove/replace hubs and increase network speed.

    Any software solution would be great. We're running an Active Directory Setup and also have Desktop Authority.

    Probably some sort of network survey application. I've never had the need, so I don't have any specific recommendations.
