Well, found a neat little network speed checker. Passmark Performance Test has a 30 day trial of their software, and part of it is network speed check.

I have been having issues with transfers between my HTPC and server. Transfers seem to only use maybe 15-18% of the total bandwidth, but from my sig rig to the server is was around 70% useage.
Server is still in the garage, and I have another gigabit switch (Trendnet 5 port for $15 from newegg) that I put where the HTPC and wifes computer is. I thought maybe the switch was the problem, but it did it plugged directly into the computer also.

Seems I have some issue between the server and the 8 port switch.

Sig rig through 2 netgear switches to server - 632 Mbits/sec
Sig Rig through 1 netgear switch to bedroom HTPC (on same switch) - 941 Mbits/sec
Sig Rig to HTPC through 3 switches (2 netgear and 1 trendnet) - 915 Mbits/sec
Server to HTPC through 2 switches (Netgear and trendnet) - 544 Mbits/sec

I need to double check my connections and wiring from the switch to the server (1 2' cable, 1 30' cable and 1 15' cable). or I just may need to get off my butt and move the server into the bedroom.
