How to check WiFi speeds in Windows 10 [Solved]
Question. How can I check wifi speeds in Windows 10 Pro?
Answer. Here are two methods to check Windows 10 wifi connection speeds:
#1 Graphical User Interface (GUI) method
- Press Windows Key + R and type ncpa.cpl
- Press Enter
- Double-click the WiFi adapter that you want to check
- The Wi-Fi Status window will display:
#2 Command Prompt text method
- Open a Command Prompt (or Press Windows Key + R and type cmd)
- Type netsh wlan show interfaces and press Enter
- You will get a text listing of Wi-Fi info and speeds (See below)
Both methods will show your current WiFi speeds in Mbps. 🙂
I hope this helps!
Example command prompt text output:
C:\Users\User>netsh wlan show interfaces There is 1 interface on the system: Name : Wi-Fi Description : Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 GUID : 90207d8b-3d19-4d09-9f3f-0dcde421XXXX Physical address : 3c:6a:a7:XX:XX:XX State : connected SSID : EERO BSSID : f8:bb:bf:XX:XX:XX Network type : Infrastructure Radio type : 802.11ac Authentication : WPA2-Personal Cipher : CCMP Connection mode : Profile Channel : 36 Receive rate (Mbps) : 260 Transmit rate (Mbps) : 260 Signal : 48% Profile : EERO
