what command will identify which dev file my device was assigned
if i plug in a usb stick or need to specify a device what is the easiest way to get the
device file assigned to it eg. hdc or sdd
also if i want to test my connection speed when im on the internet what command
would i use
any replies much appreciated
for testing you NIC
you can use the command
sudo /sbin/ethtool eth0
or through root
for internet speed most of the cases for ISPs DSL service they provide modem device
which has its own configuration and web interface, through which you can check downlink and uplink.
If you plug in a flash drive, just run dmesg. The last 10 lines or so will tell you all about the flash device, and what device file it was assigned to.
I use bwmonitor to measure bandwidth. You may need to install it.
