TamoSoft Throughput Test is a utility for testing the performance of a wireless or wired network. This utility continuously sends TCP and UDP data streams across your network and computes upstream and downstream throughput values, packet loss, and round-trip time.
Iperf is a throughput application. There is a great GUI variation called JPerf. Both allow you to compare actual throughput to the stated data rate of a WLAN.
