This question already has an answer here:

I have an ethernet 10/100 switch. this connection is working properly (to my cablemodem router, so all computers are connected to internet).

I have just bought a Gigabit switch that I am about to use instead of the other. The intented purpose is to be able to share quickly between these computers.

How to check that I am achieving Gigabit speed with my new switch between my Xubuntu / Ubuntu 14.04 computers in the lan?

I am not sharing yet between computers or created and workgroup, as I still need to learn how to do it. This is just information for anyone who will want to help to keep in mind.

Thanks

Alex

    I've closed this against a question I answered a fair while ago. It still applies for basic speed testing between Ubuntu machines. Just remember that a connection will only go as fast as the slowest component. Both network adaptors need to be gigabit, the switch needs to be gigabit and the cabling needs to be within a hundred meters (usually not an issue) and of good, uninterfered quality. – Oli Jul 7 '14 at 12:43
