Hi,

I did a network test with Passmarks Performancetest. I'm running a 10/100 network with all devices connecting at 100Mb. On Performancetest there are 2 tests to run for Network speed, TCP and UDP.

The TCP speed test came back with an average 62000kbps (7.5Mb), and the UDP was 89000kbps (10.8Mb).

As I'm running a 100mb network, shouldn't the results of been higher?

The 100Mb refers to your local area connection (LAN) within the house/router/another computer etc but the TCP speed test is the speed of the internet connection and that`s set by what your ISP offers and what wiring the line supplier has running in your street at the time.

I`m not sure how it is in the C.I. but on the mainland UK, 7.5mbps is not too bad for a standard connection so unless you`ve got cable, everything seems to be okay.

Thanks Jenny, I should of explained better. This was a test on an internal network between 2 PC's.

You basically setup one PC as a server and the other as a client which send the data and then the speed is measured by that.

62000kbps is 62 Mbps, which is about the maximum actual data throughput you will get on 100 Mbps ethernet.
