Media Streams Cause Internet Disconnection

  Pesala 20:30 02 Mar 2004

When trying to play some news items from the BBC my intenet connection is lost. This is too frequent to be coincidence. For example, click here for a stream that causes disconnection.

I am using Real One Player in Windows ME with 150K NTL cable broadband.

What could be causing the disconnection?

Please don't take this post as a chance to list your pet hates about Real One Player, or the Real alternatives I could try. I just want to know what could be causing the disconnection.

I am using W98 and IE 6, and clicking on your link first of all gets a request from Sygate to connect to Real One Player at on Port 80. But having ok'd that request I then get a Real One Player error message saying a General Error has occurred, but my Internet connection remains intact.

I can load the clip OK and plays for ten or fifteen seconds, but then cuts off my internet connection. Not just a temporary blip due to busy times at the Beep.

I'm having frequent disonnections in general tonight. Let's hope things improve after I move house and get reconnected.
