Check connection speed

How do I check my connection speed after dialing-up? I'm using Lucent win modem, with ltmodem driver, using wvdial to dial-up.

haven't looked into checking speeds yet

if you have java running on your browser(s) [after applying the java plugins] you could go to and do a speedtest from there...

however, since u're on a dial-up, you should just simply download a file from several local sites and it'll pretty much tell you your downstream speed

hope this helps!
