      One way is to measure the throughput.

      Start "netio -s" on your pc and connect from your slug (or the
      other way arround):

      # netio -t pc

      NETIO - Network Throughput Benchmark, Version 1.23

      Done.


      This is almost 100 mbit full line speed!

      Also check if you see collisions on your slug:

      # ifconfig ixp0
      ixp0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:66:7F:0E:EC
