Unfortunately there's no way to do that from within the router. The best thing to do would be to stop any downloads/streams that are happening on your connection and then do a speedtest yourself using speedtest.net or something similar.

Download OOklas speed test on a a wifi mobile device such as a phone or pad or install this app on Mac or Windows PCs.

You could go through the setup wizard again which would allow you to do so but Ookla's speedtest.net is the exact same test and would be better for diagnosing any speed/ping issues
