Hey All,
I need some help please. I have owned an iMac for over a year now. I am having buffering issues when watching streaming videos. The buffer progress bar starts off normal initially, but then suddenly stops after two minutes of viewing/buffering time. Once the video catches up to the stopped buffer, there is about a 30 second delay and then the video starts buffering again.

I am not running wireless. I am direct connect to a cable network. The problems in both Safari and Firefox.

Applecare is not helping much. They suggested reseting Safari, and of course they dont want to know about Firefox

Can anybody help? Thanks in advance...I hope!
