Re: slow/stalled video stream
My ISP is Qwest DSL with MSN. I hardly ever go on the internet using MSN, I
usually just use IE. I'm not sure how fast my connection is, but it's just
the basic Qwest DSL (I didn't upgrade, so it's probably the lowest one they
offer). I hadn't thought of the speed. I assumed that since we got DSL
instead of dial-up and a new computer, it should make everything fast, but
I'm finding out that's not true. Thanks!
