Are you asking about how to find the user throughput or the connection data rate to the WLAN?

There are lots of things you could look at. But in Wireshark, I would start with Layer 3 Retries.

Display filter; "wlan.fc.retry == 1" You want this to be less than 10%, the lower the better.

Of course don't forget the WLAN basics; Signal Strength S/N Ratio Interference / Noise Data rates

Also look out for Dissociation / Deauthentication. Someone may be bumping you off your network!
