How to run a Speed Check using a web browser

Speed Check measures the download and upload speeds between your device and the internet. It helps determine if you're receiving the expected service level from your internet service provider (ISP). Internet speeds can vary due to factors like your ISP plan, local and global internet traffic, and the number and activities of the devices on your network.


You can check your internet speed using the Linksys app. If you can't use the app, you can also run a speed check through a web browser by following these steps.


1. Connect a computer to your Linksys WiFi network.


2. Open a web browser and log in to your router.   

3. Once you’re in the dashboard, click on Speed Check


4. Speed Check options/settings vary by model. Some routers offer two Speed Check services which are CloudFlare and Click on one to run a speed check. 




If you have the following screen, click on Start Speed Check




Some Linksys routers provided by your ISP may have a Change Default Server option, which allows you to select a different location when doing a speed check instead of using the default one. This feature is only accessible in certain ISP Linksys router models.  


Once the test has been completed, you should be able to see the results based on your current internet setup.
