I'm having WLAN trouble on my dualbooting win/linux laptop - the connection on linux side has occasional trouble, and seems somewhat slow and chunky. I would try to fix this issue by fiddling with all sorts of router settings, or WLAN kernel modules backports, or whatever - but problem is, it's hard to know if the settings have had any effect, since the problem appears in only subjective feeling about connection speed. So I'd like to have some way of executing a measurement that would tell me if the problem was affected or not.
So far I've just used
iwconfig which returns normal data, and
ping -c 100 -i 0.2 on the router and some stabile website ip addresses, but the summary doesn't give me all that good data, only the occasional packet loss. One information that's missing from the summary is the count of packets with clearly deviating roundtrip time, since that's one of the symptoms I've noticed - most packets come back with a regular time, but some of them take a lot longer.
So what tools can I use to get some actual, numerical data on the quality of my internet connection?
(And just in case someone's wondering, yes, the problem is real and not just confirmation bias, as it sometimes appears bad enough to throw me off the WLAN connection. It's probably somehow related to this Ubuntu bug and/or this Redhat bug)
