The reason behind your streaming video problem could be because you have other programs that are taking up bandwidth or someone else on your network is using a lot of bandwidth or even your computer resources could be causing some delays.
Also, you could use DSLReports to check your connection speed just for a reference: http://www.dslreports.com/stest

Thx a bunch for getting back to me, its very disappointing to hear that the modem is not capable of keeping up with the network card. I ran a speed test with broadstar and it clocked my download speed at 754 Kb/s and upload at 129Kb/s. Do you think its my connection that is to blame, or might there be something else that is giving me slow buffering? Thx for all the help.

4332 Kb/s down
352 Kb/s up
As you can see, my numbers are some what higher which means one of two things. Either someone or some program is taking the bandwidth away from you or it could just be normal for your ISP.
Here's a couple of questions, is your computer hooked directly up to a modem or do you share your internet connection with others? Secondly, what type of connection do you have? DSL or Cable? That could also make a difference. Also, check the documentation on your connection type, see if they have advertise their minimum transfer rates.
Let me know
