Today we will learn how to know the maximum speed of the network adapters in Windows 10. Similarly, we will measure the capacity of the Bluetooth adapter, if present. Knowing this information is important for certain cases. It also allows us to deepen our knowledge of the hardware. Read on to find out how to do it.
Checking the maximum speed of network devices with PowerShell.
In this opportunity we will show you two ways to achieve it. First, we will use PowerShell. It is well known that this element allows you to execute commands. Don’t worry, we will do a very quick and easy check. First of all, you need to run PowerShell. Moreover, it is not necessary to run it with administrator privileges. With this in mind, just press Win+X and select the corresponding option:
Then run the following command:
If you encounter problems with this command, then run this alternative:
Get-NetAdapter | select interfaceDescription, name, status, linkSpeed
In any case, PowerShell will output all the data we are interested in. That is, the WiFi, Ethernet and Bluetooth cards. Additionally, the name and the maximum transfer rate are displayed. Furthermore, the speed is displayed in megabytes per second. Which is a simple measurement to interpret. Finally, we will see the Mac address of each device.
Checking these values from the Windows settings.
We will also be able to obtain this information from Windows Settings. However, we will only find out about the one we are using. With this intention, press the Win+X combination to go to Windows Settings. Now click on Network & Internet.
Consequently, the connection options will be displayed. Please click on Hardware Properties.
Consequently, we will see a lot of data related to the connection. Among them, the total speed of the connection.
Ultimately, we have seen how to know the maximum speed of network devices in Windows 10. So you can get the most out of your internet connection. Bye!
