All sounds from streaming of broadcasts are breaking up all the time. The speakers are ok. This started when a new copy of XP Home was installed. My sound number on the box is CMI 9739A. Every radio broadcast is the same. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Open media player, click tools, options, performance, change the buffer size to 20 seconds, click apply, check it is set to detect connection speed

I tried your suggestion, but the breaks or gaps in conversations are still there. Most radio streaming systems are different from each other, so Media player itself is not a problem.

The line speed is 601.7 kbps (73.7 kbytes/sec).
Another test showed (1) download speed 319.45 kbits/sec
and (2) upload speed 747.6 kbits/xec

The other players should have a similar option for performance, Winamp can be set to above normal or real time

I uninstalled K-Lite codec pack and replaced it with XP codec pack 1.3.4. This seemed to fix the problem.
