NOTE With the detailed Network overview, it is easy to find out if your
network connection has a high utilization rate by looking at the header bar. Keep in
mind that the network card in your computer usually has a greater capacity and
is capable of higher speeds than your Internet connection. If you have a 100 MB
network card in your computer and it is connected to a 10 MB broadband Internet
connection, then when your network card utilization is at 10 percent, your Internet
connection is at 100 percent utilization.
