Why do I get only about 1% network utilizatio

March 12, 2011 at 04:44:54
Specs: Windows 7, 2.13GHz/4.0GB
No mater what I do, I can only get just over 1% network utilization. Even though I have a link speed of 100Mbps, it seldom gets to 100Kbps and never maintains anything over 70Kbps. I supposedly have a 1.5Gbps service. How can I increase my throughput?

more likely you have 1.5Mbps service not gigabit internet service.

have you gone to a broadband test site to check your up and down? Have you talked to your isp concerning the stats?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

You are right about my service speed. Since I can't blame a typo, I'll have to blame my dyslexia for that mistake. . .

i did go to a broadband test site on my older, slower, Win '98 machine when i was trying to get BitTorrent working. The results were very reasonable at that time. This is what my router/modem is reporting: Speed(Down/Up) 1184 Kbps / 448 Kbps. The best sustained speeds I have seen are 120 Kbps / 70 Kbps from any site I've visited.
