Got another link from a co-worker for testing speed: http://www.speedtest.net/

It is important to get an accurate read on your upload speed, because you are going to tell the router how much it has to work with. If you underestimate your upload bandwidth, you may inadvertently throttle your upload speed - if you overestimate, the QoS will not be effective for the high-priority traffic. The DD-WRT Wiki recommends setting the uplink speed to 85% of your actual. This is to ensure latency stays tight - apparently if you go all in, you could saturate the line with so much traffic latency will suffer - and latency kills VOIP quality.
