I have been in a similar spot and ended up using IPERF
Using windows OS i could only generate about 450+Mb, with Linux OS (Knoppix) 
was able to generate full gigabit of traffic.
I did have to use a dell 2860 poweredge server w/dual xeon processors so 
hardware would support high levels of traffic as lesser hardware would not. 
(dell poweredge 1750 single P3 800 MHz, dell sx 270 mini 2.8GHz P4-so I'm 
not sure about using a laptop)
