Does anyone know how I can find what my current ADSL connection speeds are (using a Cisco 1841)?
A show int, gives the following snippets of output:
ATM0/1/0.1 is up, line protocol is up
Hardware is HWIC-DSLSAR (with Alcatel ADSL Module)
MTU 4470 bytes, BW 736 Kbit, DLY 690 usec,
reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 29/255
Dialer2 is up, line protocol is up (spoofing)
Hardware is Unknown
Internet address is 126.96.36.199/32
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 56 Kbit, DLY 20000 usec,
reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 90/255
Obviously the upload will be different to the download speed, so the above information does not reflect that.
I have concerns about the speeds shown. I get around 2.5Mbit download with a cheap router, so if I really am on 768K or 56K, then I'm really not getting good performance! The actual feel of the network is ok, I just want some concrete stats I can monitor.

Sorry, there isn't a way to find out WAN speeds from a router interface. The only way to take a estimate is to initiate a large download and checking the kbps value of the download.
The numbers displayed above under BW are inherited from the interface type or manually entered in the configuration interface with the bandwidth command. It does not reflect the true speed of the interface.
That does sound like a failing on Cisco's part. Even the cheapest Netgear will tell you what speed you are connected at.
I suppose the issue is, while it might be possible to do it for ADSL, to be consistant Cisco would really have to do it for all WAN types, where that might not be possible.
Still, it would be a useful feature to have, as my router currently says it is maxing out at 100% utilization on that interface. Even at 2.5Mbit, this is possible as we are trying to support a remote office of 35 people connecting to core services, for as little money as possible. You get what you pay for!
While I agree with the poster above, the connection speed does not tell you everything, it is a very good starting point. If you should get 2.5Mbit and it connects at 100k, then you have a serious problem. If, like me, you connect at 2.5Mbit and have 100% utilization, then you have too much traffic and it is time for the boss to find a bigger budget!
