Checking the Speed of your network interface

I recently requested an upgrade on one of our dedicated server’s uplink speed, we only had a 10Mbps Uplink, we requested an upgrade to 100Mbps to serve a lot more.

How do you verify the upgrade has been done correctly?

As root, issue the following comand:

# mii-tool
eth0: negotiated 10baseT-FD, link ok

If it doesn’t work (for debian or ubuntu), make sure you have installed the net-tools package (The NET-3 networking toolkit)
