I dont seem to have the network icon in my taskber at the bottom of the page ( two litle monitors) so how can i check my internet speed?

Or click here

By the way, the network icon will only reveal the maximum speed of which the line is capable.

Most likely this will be listed as 100MB (i.e. 10-100MB)

If you are on Windows XP - Go to Start, go to My Network Places, then on the left click View network connections. Find your connection and then double click on it. It will then tell you your connection speed.

ok thanks the first one would not load the page for testing but the second link from stuarti worked and read 482kbps, is there any way of making it quicker?
Also Is there a way to get my little icons in the task bar?

It will tell you 100Mbps...:-)

You need Javascript for the ThinkBroadband speed test.

Your speed reading is not very good - I obtain 6000-6250 on average and 380 uploading.
