Is there a tool to monitor Internet connection speed and also network speed?

Hi..I wanna know beside IPTRAF what other tools are availble for me to monitor my network speed and also Internet connection speed.IPTRAF seems to look like a nice tool but it is a bit hard to understand and decipher.Looks compicated.I have rough time having to explain to my collegue. Is there tools like this in GUI that most of us dont know.
The network is using 2Mbps leased line.Sometimes I won't even get that I wonder y?

Agreed, gkrellm is a great monitoring too (even includes server/client capability), but are you looking to monitor traffic on one machine, or on the entire network?
