By default, Windows XP/Vista reserves 20% of your bandwidth for NOTHING - If you have Windows XP PROFESSIONAL [ Or Vista, other than Home version ], you can change a setting to allow for 100% bandwidth, with the few following steps:

1) Go to start | run
2) type gpedit.msc and hit enter/ok.
3) Go to Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Network.
4) Click on QoS Packet Scheduler.
5) Double-click on limit reservable bandwidth.
6) Enable it, then set the bandwidth limit to 0% and hit ok.

Restart to apply changes - Makes a big difference on my computer, and others I have worked on :-)
