I am surprised this is as much as a chalenge, but I noticed when running ncftp 
from shellworld, that my speed was around 60 instead of its usual 200.  So 
some1 in our Linux group had us install iperf.  The results didn't make sense 
to me, so I heard that I could go to
They even have a link for non-java, but it also is a jumble of random items.
When I go to whatismyip.com  the speed test requires javascript.  Are their any 
console tools which I can check my DSL speed?
Thanks in advance
