    My comp is connected to the internet via DSL. I am the only computer on the line w/ a direct feed (no router). My d-load speeds are consistent with the advertised speeds of the ISP.

    Here is my question:
    Why when d-loading from the internet why, in task manager, under the network tab, does my Network Utilitaztion only register operating at 65%. It never goes past that.

    Is there a setting/tweak I should be looking at somewhere?

    This is because it's the percentage of the maximum speed of the NIC, which is 10 or 100 Mbit. Not the percentage of the speed you get from your ISP.
