Network saturation when client PC is at 100 mbps, not 10 mbps??

Network saturation when client PC is at 100 mbps, not 10 mbps??

Network saturation when client PC is at 100 mbps, not 10 mbps??

(OP)
This is a weird one.  We have two WIndows 2000 domain controllers with about 80 pcs on the network. We have one NAT subnet, with a T1 connection to the web.  The network speed is 10/100 mbps, we also have a mixed array of hardware switches and hubs, cat3, cat5, cat5e, and cat6 cabling.  My PC is cat5e, 100mbps full dup.  Whenever I download something from the web, I utilize 99% of the bandwidth and everyone else's connection just slows down to a crawl.  I noticed my download speed is at around 170 kbps which is normal.  Now for the weird part.... If I change my network card settings to 10 mbps half dup, I can then download from the web, my dl speed is still 170 kbps, and I don't saturate the network.  Any ideas??
