When you say your internet connection becomes limited what do you mean exactly?

Sorry, been away from the PC.

When you get the yellow triangle make sure that 'Work Offline' is not selected (via Tools on the upper right of your browser, assuming it's Internet Explorer).

If you have a firewall check that the settings allow WMP access.

Hope it helps.
