    NIc Speed

    Hello,
    Does anyone know of a way that I can view my nic speed on server 2008 r2 core, without logging into the switch as I don't know which port it is.

    Can't you follow the cable into the cab? Most switches allow you to view the speed based on the LEDs being off for 10Mbps, flashing for 100Mbps and on for 1000Mbps.

    Not easily as no patch panels are involved.

    Surely if you log onto the switch it should show you what device is connected to what port by mac address or device name etc and go from there regards to speed on the correct port

    Failing that as above regards to the connection properties in windows

    Didn't think of mac address - thanks. Can you get the control panel on the core edition?

    Missed the fact it was core.

    connect via power shell

    get-NetAdapter | format-table interfaceindex, interfacealias, MacAddress, LinkSpeed –autosize

    Does that not only work for a 2012 machine?
