For the past few months, I've been dealing with an odd issue. It seems whenever I listen to XM Satellite Radio (www.listen.xmradio.com
) online, I lose my internet connection.
Here's how it happens:
Everything is fine at first. But then, about 2 hours in, the program automatically assumes I an Idle, just b/c I've been on the same station the whole time. And once that Idle message pops up, I lose my internet connection. But this also happens if I simple click 'Stop' on the player and then attempt to close the window. When I X out the window, it freezes momentarily, and I notice I've lost my internet.
Now, I thought this was just an issue with this specific player, but the other day I was attempting to watch a movie trailer that I think was streaming or buffering or something, and it loaded in Windows Media Player. And the same thing happened. It froze for a second, as I tried to stop and then close it, and I lost my internet.
This is always an issue with my Router. Meaning, I don't have to reset my Modem to fix it. I just have to unplug and then replug in my router for 15 secs, and I'm back online.
Can someone help? I'd really like to avoid calling LinkSys. They're sort of idiotic over there and I usually find I know more about the topic I'm calling about than they do.
