    How's everything else working? Did you try it on another computer?

    Generally, buffering will start and stop. If it's buffering real close to the bit rate, it may sound like its stuttering.

    If it's in your shop, maybe you just werent' getting a very good amount of bandwidth today.

    Re: puter troubles i think

    Larry i find this issue with my local Internet Service Provider. They seem to have issues with the cable repeaters some times and others all i have to do is reboot the home router. So you might want to go inside remove power and let router die then reconnect power. Its amazing what a refresh will do.
    Something else i did but its a bit more tricky is to set the router DNS address so it looks to the google public dns for its direction not the local isp. But for this you need to be able to log into your router. for that u need the username and password from your isp unless u have already got it. I insist on having it and change all sorts inside it for my needs. They dont like me.
    Tough its my $$.

    Not much you can do about the buffering. Doesn't hurt to reset the router from time to time, but in general, could just have been troubles at the ISP.

    If your computer is running slow - perhaps too many programs active, or a long time since the last boot-up - it will interfere with speed-sensitive material (i.e. music).

    Cable modem people don't advertise that they provide a certain amount of speed that is shared in a neighborhood. Our internet service becomes distinctly slower when it starts to rain on a weekend, and all the golfers come home and look for something to do (surf the net)

    It sounds like ISP issues to me, too. Not a lot can be done about it, but try shutting down all your extraneous programs and see if that picks it up a little.

    I'm surprised you could tell it was cutting out with the volume you project singing along
