comment Is there an easy way to retrieve the link speed of network devices?
Thanks. I already run a network discovery tool (not Zenmap) and have a spreadsheet with the DHCP/static, MAC, physical location, login URL etc. so I'm at least part of the way there. Most of the switches are unmanaged cheapies thought so it looks like the old fashioned way or not at all.

Yes, the whole place is a bit of a mess and I am lucky enough to have inherited it. I'm just wondering if there are any network discovery tools that might automate or avoid at least some of the dusty and time-consuming manual activity.

I had thought of that and may end up doing so, but this doesn't tell me if the cable (which will inevitably be unlabelled and may snake its way through conduits etc.) is damaged/poor spec and can't support gigabit but is connected to a gigabit port.

comment Where is Windows pulling this connection status/type from and can I edit it?
No proxies here. I think the key thing was the NetworkList\Profiles, the Wpad settings are just populated with the same value if not explicitly set?

Nope, even after two reboots the connection (and, bizarrely, the renamed wireless connection) still show 'EData'.

Typo (these are bonus characters to satisfy the Gods of Revision Control)

I had to re-enable the wireless adapter and could change this value, but even after doing this the old name stuck with both the wireless and wired connection. Can't reboot now to test what might happen then, and this still doesn't explain why Windows would make a wired connection inherit a wireless network name.

There are no DNS suffixes listed, nor have I ever had cause to change any of these settings.

Sorry, should've clarified this. PC is not on a domain and the workgroup is 'WORKGROUP'.

comment How to know which keyboard layout is currently active using cmd in Windows 7 32bit?
Sorry, I've had a good dig about and it doesn't seem there's an easy way to get this status if it is changed via the keyboard shortcut. Perhaps someone with better Powershell knowledge can help.
