If you're trying to max out your internet line then something such as P2P software or a download manager that opens up concurrent connections should do the trick. If configured to use 99-100% of the "available bandwidth" then these programs are going to bring your connection down to a crawl which is obviously not recommended.

Why are you trying to do this? If it's a shared network, this is going to cause ALOT of problems. Also check with your ISP to make sure they allow P2P and multiple concurrent connections on their network. Many ISPs frown at these since you are "hogging" the bandwidth from their other subscribers.

^ He's got some good points there.

Downloading massive files (media) via P2P or torrents will help in eating up the available bandwidth, but try not to do this at peak hours.

Both P2P and torrents work through a client software and there's plenty of them on the Internet.
