    Not sure where to post this so here goes:


    If you do internet radio what upload speed do you have? Mine is currently 0.37MB/s is that too low? My test run skipped loads. Just wondering if any of you have or had this problem and what you did to fix it?

    Thank you :)

    My upload speed is the same and I have no problems. What bitrate are you trying to stream at? Close EVERYTHING that could use bandwidth in particular any torrent trackers or peer to peer software. Even MSN Messenger can make a difference so all off. Are you sharing a connection or using wireless?

    I am on wireless and I only had msn on which I needed to talk to them with, I even reduced it to 96kbps and it still did it

    Hi,

    I suggest using it connected to your router. Try closing msn when you are doing a test run or even use a old computer to stream from with all other software etc removed.

    You are lucky but my upload hits 50kbs at the max and I am on 10mb internet with Virgin Media
