Info on the download/upload nominal speed of Internet connection



  • Hi

    I have a firewall hardware with pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) which manages, via the PPPoE protocol, the Internet connection provided by a VDSL2 router connected to the WAN of the firewall and set to Bridge mode.

    Using pfSense, how do I display the download/upload nominal speed of my Internet connection?

    Thanks

    Bye



  • I have no idea what nominal means in this context, but if you want to see a realtime view of your traffic, try Status - Traffic Graph.  If you need more detail, there are packages like ntopng that can help.

    Using pfSense, how do I display the maximum speed of download/upload on my Internet connection set by my provider?

    There's nothing pfSense itself can do to detect the speed limits set by your ISP, for example your WAN connection might say a 100Mbit/sec connection on the pfSense dashboard because it's connected to a modem with a 100Mbit/sec port but the real speed can be anything between the practical maximum of a 100Mbit/sec connection to something like 256Kbit/sec if your ISP has set the limit that low.

    Your ISP can tell you the nominal speed limits and in some cases you can see them from the management page of your cable/dsl modem.
