The network utilization is just showing you how much of the network you are using at a given time. It is normal for it to be a low amount unless you are doing tons of network/internet related functions (which even then it can still be quite low). If you are using internet sharing from your PC to your Xbox, it should show utilization of that device as well. Personally on my PC I have never seen it go beyond 10%, even when heavily downloading or sending files to my NAS drive.
