Some days ago, it was discoverer that playing mp3 on Vista with browsing at the same time will slow down your network.

“Please note that some of what we are seeing is expected behavior, and some of it is not. In certain circumstances Windows Vista will trade off network performance in order to improve multimedia playback. This is by design.”
