    What is your speed I like using this. Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test
    Some ISP's throttle over a certain amount of usage.

    you may also want to do a network inventory as well. I was having issues a while back, and found out it was my router that was the issue. I thought I bought a decent N router, but once a G-only device hit the network, my streaming went to crap. I replaced it with a Dual-band N router (AirPort Extreme) and set up a network for the non-N devices and all my troubles went away. A single G device can tank your streaming

    Besides, routers do get old and will fail. Same for the Modems.

    Hi, thank you for your help. I think we may need a new router as its 4 years old.
    I am not technical to be honest and very new to Apple, have always been a PC user.
    I will do the speed check that you have suggested and look into upgrading the router just in case. Thank you :-)
