      Napster keeps buffering etc - a newbie rants

      Just moved from NTL (2mbps, then 4) where Napster streamed without a single interruption/hitch.
      Now on Sky Max - quiet line, 1.7k from Exchange, router reports 9.6 Mbps - and Napster plays for 2 seconds, then stops to buffer, then plays another couple of seconds - it's close to unuseable.

      Is this something that ADSL (as opposed to cable) BB users have to put up with, or is it just a Sky added extra?

      Is there anything I can do about it?

      In general, some of the time the connection is very quick, at other times it's like porridge.

      And don't get me started on using WPA to connect...I've finally reverted to WEP for a trouble-free life!!

      My Napster works flawlessly on MAX and always has done.

      I will check my settings later to see if anything could be done to help you out.
