For most users, this means using a PC or Mac on your home network as a server, and then testing the bandwidth between that server and another device also on your home network.

Now designate the second Mac a client by using this command in Terminal:. Remember, mega bits are different from mega bytes ; 1 megabyte MB is equal to 8 megabits Mb.
