I resently set up a wireless-n airport extreme, and I'm wanting to know what's the best way to find out exactly how fast I can send and receive info. It appears my downloads are faster, but I want to see the actual speed values

This only tests the line coming in from your ISP and not actually how fast you can send wirelessly, the only way that I know how to do this is by hooking a HDD to the Airport base station and timing how long it takes to send a file. Then do some calculations and you have it This might be a little complicated but this is the only way I know of.
