I recentley purchashed a new laptop on Vista so I bought and installed a router. Everything is working fine except that most days I have to keep rebooting both my modem and router to get an internet connection.

That seems to work fine and my internet connection is pretty fast. However when I try and watch a video clip on youtube or direct from a website, it plays for about a minute, then it freezes, then it plays then it freezes alltogther. I've run an internet speed test and I dont seem to have any problems with that. I have waited for the clip to buffer but it still doesnt work?

I've got the latest editions of flash player installed and everything is up to date. so what could be causing this to happen?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

If this happen with your surfing to ? You might just need to get a firmware for your router , Check with the manufacturer of it and see if they have one for your model ...

Well to be sure try just to connect straight to your computer and see . I mean don't use the router , just connected straight to your computer and see if it still happening . Also see if it will help to call your ISP and ask them to clear your line . Just tell them your experiences internet problems , some days are better than others . Also it could be on the other end , the site might have server problems at times

I really believe the problem is that it freezes because its at the point were it still downloading the clip . See when you start if there a pause buttom . Try the pause selection , this way it should show you that its still downloading . once you notice that the download is compeleted then view whatever .
