    Default Buffering

    At one time my flash player worked great,I have the latest that my system supports.
    I could watch you tube,hulu and other flash vids with no interuption.
    Now a flash vid will start then buffer after 10 secs then 2 min and all over again.
    I have 250 kbs wireless, what puzzles me is that worked great 1 week ago.
    My question is this my PC or my provider.
    And is there any thing I can do on my end.
    Thanks for any help.

    You can check your ISP here;

    http://speedtest.net/

    Could be your browser, if your isp speed is ok.

    Sometimes the ISP will throttle you back, if they need more bandwidth, or you use a lot of bandwidth.

    I have 18.91 Mbps download and 3.59 Mbps upload. But that's on ethernet cable.

    Before you use the heavy tools on it,

    Try this Free Software tool;

    It will help you optimize your computer, and make it run faster.

    Try using speedbit accelerator, I was having similar problem when I moved to a new place. Now it’s working very fine. When you click a video link, just let it buffer and do something else. It works for me.
