I have wireless internet connection at home and at work. When i am home i have no problem playing streaming videos online. When i am at work i can not play them through the wireless there. It constantly stops and buffers. There are no restrictions in regard to internet use or anything at work. Just basically wondering how to fix it so i can watch stuff there as good as i can at home.

it may be because your work has a cheaper router meaning slower speeds

Ok so the consensus is that the wireless router is the problem right. I may take up a collection at work to buy a new one. What specs should i look for when getting a new wireless router.
