My streaming is not working right.

I wonder if the rain is causing my streaming to pause. I can't play anything on my tv right now. It's so quite to the point it's nerve wrecking. I like quiet but today I want to hear noise from the tv. I just cut it off for a little while. I might as well just listen to the car horns and the tires running on the wet ground. Oh well such is my life.

Do you normally have trouble with your internet connecting durion storms? If so, the rain could be the problem. A common rule of thumb though, is to reset everything, by unplugging it for 30 seconds to a minute and plug it back in. If that doesn't work, try contacting your internet service provider and see if there's a reason for the lag. Another common issue that causes buffering, is there's to much going on cloging up the network. Try cutting back on what you're doing, to give more to the network to allow it to stream more freely.

@sharon6345 That would do it, heavey traffic in some areas do eat up bandwidth.

That has to suck. I have not had problems like that. I have Directv and they are actually better than cable. But for my internet, as you know, I have optimum. I hope you get that fixed soon or it fixes it self. I know how frustrating it could be.

I used to turn the TV on in the evenings for company when it's just me and hubby living here.....otherwise it's on most all the time now.
