Answer. Here are two methods to check Windows 10 wifi connection speeds:

  • 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. 🙂
