When I first started using this laptop (Gateway M-6307, 32 Bit - Vista OS) I could connect to local radio stations online with no issue. Then, about a month ago, I'm not sure what happened, but, I now can't connect/listen to those same stations anymore. All of the online radio 'Faqs' haven't helped my situation, along with other posts I've seen. Firefox is my current browser, but I've tried IE and I yeild the same results with both. Help to clear up my issue would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

P.S. I can watch youtube videos, online movies, and other radio stations(www.di.fm - via VLC) with no issue.

Issues with streaming radio stations are usually firewall related.

I've tried a system restore with no luck. Also with the firewall off it doesn't work. It's strange, sometimes I'll hear the commercial then no music or other commercials will play. And, yes, I ment like internet Music b96online.com, and kdwb.com Thanks.....

No..When I try in IE, it says, "The content is unavailable would you like to reconnect?" Hitting yes does nothing. In FF it loads, just only plays the commercial preloaded, then doesn't do anything after hitting the play button. It doesn't make much sense.
