Help with interrupted Internet streams

by saleswords / April 23, 2004 1:02 AM PDT

My internet listening is often interrupted by a ?beep? tone that lasts anywhere from a second to 10 seconds. About half of the time, I get disconnected from the stream ? but not from the web site. The tone can happen within seconds of making a connection or hours later, several times in an hour (or none). It doesn?t matter what web site I?m connected to, what player I?m using (WinAmp, Real Audio, Windows Media), whether I'm using Internet Explorer or AOL, or whether it?s a live stream or an MP3. I?m running Windows 2000 Pro over a Cox Cable broadband connection. Any thoughts?

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
