I've downloaded iometer, can you tell me what do I have to test and how?

gigabit in both ends. The switch I'm not in front of the machine so I 
can't tell you until next week but my guess is that's a regular switch. 
I think that I'm going to try a crossover cable of CAT 6 to avoid any 
other issue. I think jumbo frames are deactivated but how can I know?

It is the same as mentioned before: 10 MB/s
