For residential routers, I need a load tester that is open source; are there any recommendations?

Some testing that I would like to do is:

  • Mass connections to find out max
  • Simultaneously load/download/upload connections

Basically, something that is going to attempt to break my router without finding exploits, I want my router to be connection tested so I can find out its theoretical load limit.

What kind of 'loads' are you aiming to test? –  techie007 Jul 28 '11 at 1:56
