Both your processor and network rating can fluctuate depending on whether your CPU and/or internet connection are being used when the agent finishes a work unit.
When the agent displays "Preparing to Return Results to Server" it benchmarks your system to give it a rating. If you are using your system for other things at that time, the rating will be lower than if you were not using it.
The network rating is similar. Right after the agent finishes preparing to return the results to the server, it enters a phase to check the speed of the network connection. If you are using some bandwidth downloading files or whatnot, your rating will be lower than if your connection was idle.
