Help.  I do not know much about anything....  I am trying to see if a wireless connection between 2 buildings is adequate.  I have played wire Wireshark and see that if I use my IP address as the interface, and a computer's IP address somewhere else locally, I can see packets sent and received, with no dropped packets.  I plan to go to a friends site to do this exercise between 2 buildings.  This in itself is not a big deal, but I want to get an idea of the available bandwidth between the buildings.  Their problem is that their IP phones have very poor quality.  The people who installed their antennas say it is the IP phone system.  The antenna people report 8 megabit thru-put.  The IP phone vendors say it is the wireless connection.  I want to get to the bottom of this.  Any suggestions? How can I measure bandwidth? If there are no dropped packets between the buildings should I assume the problem lies with the IP phones??
Thanks in advance.
