My internet is driving me crazy. If I try to watch a video it stops and says its buffering. When I try to listen to Yahoo radio it pauses in the middle of the song. If I am trying to chat anywhere it pauses and refreshes the chat causing the messenger to sign in and out continously. I have tried everything. I reset internet explorer to its default settings and that worked for a little while. I disable add-ons. I have Internet Explorer 7. If anyone can help me please please do. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi malew, and :flowers: to BC!

What version of Windows are you using, and what kind of internet connection do you have?

I have the same problems and always have, but that's because I'm on slow dialup and actually have to go through two different phone companies to get to my ISP! :thumbsup:

I have Windows Vista and I have internet through my cable company. I don't think it is with my ISP ......I mean I guess it could be, but all I know is that I need serious help. I am pulling my hair out because it is so annoying.

Albeit that you have cable and are promised all that beautiful speed.....Why not test it.....Many, many people are NOT getting what they pay for. If so....just call those money grabbing "individuals" up while you are running some of these tests. Of course, know what you are suppose to be getting.

Ask THEM for THEIR "testing site" as to avoid any line of "explanation" that they may conjur up. These test site can and will vary. Verizon(#5 on the list) guided me to theirs.
