    Your switches and nics should come complete with utilities to do basic
    cabling diagnostics and bandwith testing.

    The port stats on the switches, SNMP stats on NICS.
    You didn't say if you want a tester on a PC what OS if any, a dedicated
    LAN tester(which is software driven) , end to end tester,or much at all.

    Assuming some PC/Workstation
    iperf (Win and Java/*nix), pcattcp / ttcp / netperf / qcheck /
    and mrtg for recording b/w.


    all of those also mentioned before in 24HSHD
    http://groups.google.com/group/24hoursupport.helpdesk/topics
    when the same question was asked several times.

    There are sites listing dozens of b/w testing apps.

    network monitoring tools

    No software required, a competent installer will have all the necessary
    gear to do the testing and provide a guarantee and a certificate.

    There is no bandwidth in LAN. It is transfer speed.
    Windows?
    Open up task manager, click on network tab.
