If you look here, you have 2 cores that can execute 4 threads each. So I would assume 800% is your maximum. Seems likely that Adobe maxed out one CPU completely, and the other CPU was running the OS and other tasks. Also, within Activity Monitor, you can choose Window -> CPU History, and it will break down everything. For example on my 6 core Xeon, I ...

The old driver probably doesn't work with El Capitan. As indicated on the Linksys website Belkin is working on creating a Linksys driver package for the OS X 10.11. Meanwhile you may try the RealTek beta driver here.
