I have the following:


Time Capsule 802.11n (4th Generation) setup as my Primary Router


I have extended the network to another room using physical Cat5e cable connection to the following:


AirPort Extreme 802.11n (5th Generation)



All is working great with no complaints, but my question is how do I know the Airport Extreme is actually connecting to the Time Capsule at Gigabit speed over the LAN cable?  There seems to be nowhere in the Airport Utility to show the LAN / cabled connection speeds?



I have proven the cabling is fine by connecting my Macbook at the intended AirPort Extreme location and it does show auto negotiated to Gigabit speed connection back to the Time Capsule.  So no reason to doubt that the Airport Extreme is also connecting at Gigabit using same cable - it would just be nice to see it in writing somewhere!
