as you see with those results... you should be running xx/256 in the speed guide to keep you from nudging your cap of 28 THEORETICAL maximum. at MOST you should be hitting 90% of your theoretical maximum due to overhead from bittorrent processes. Additionally as you increase your upload to the max download speed suffers.

You can prove this to yourself by keeping your seeding tasks going and starting OpenOffice. If you lower your upload 10% at a time, you will probably notice the download speed jump ~ 24 even though the speed guide suggests 22 upload cap.
