First off *many* thanks to all that made suggestions and tried to help.
 I hate it when I miss the obvious :(

I finally found out that I hit 98% between the two machines when using
ttcp *when my media player is stopped or closed*  I remember reading
about network issues when playing music many months ago when I was first
learning about Vista but for some reason I either never noticed the
issue before or never triggered it.  More details can be found here
http://blogs.zdnet.com/Ou/?p=711 and here

Although I saw references to being able to change MMCSS settings in
Vista SP1 I never actually saw anything on where to make the changes so
I simply disabled MMCSS completely as seen here

Thanks again to all that helped and I am once again glad I run BSD on my
server and don't have to deal with this crap there,
Jonathan Stewart
