Default Online buffering problem

I'm using a Stiletto 2 with the Stiletto 2 Boombox to connect to my Apple network. I'm also subbing to the "internet premium" package. Over the past week I'm running into constant buffering. It plays maybe for 8 seconds, then re buffers, plays, then re buffers again. I have other wireless devices in the house that there is no problem with. Does it sound like my unit may have gone defective? It worked great in this mode for a long time, but not so good over the past week.

No it sounds more to me like your internet service provider is having some issues. Just hang tough and see if it passes. If it worked great before and then suddenly started this I'd assume it wash an issue with the Internet. I've not experienced any issues with it and I use it almost everyday at work.

Something you might try is to cycle the power on your cable or DSL modem, and your router. If you call your ISP customer support, that's the first thing they'll have you try.

Consumer equipment frequently have minor software bugs which only rear their heads after prolonged or intensive use.

Dang good advise... How come I didn't think of that? You are correct though that is always what they get you to do if you call in. This allows your system to get removed and then readded to the system and this often times clears up little small issues.
