WMP/wireless connection question

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

I`m in Tokyo and I`ve got a local wireless connection at my residence. For some time I`ve been getting my news in Japanese through Yahoo (Windows Media Player) news clips. It`s useful as a study tool because I can read and listen simultaneously.

I switched from my old Ibook to a Macbook Pro a week ago, and reinstalled WMP properly. However, when I click to open the videos the WMP box comes up and says `connecting...` indefinitely, with no image ever appearing. The strange thing is I took it down to an Apple store to show them the problem and the WMP videos from YahooNews opened fine on their wireless connection.

Anything I can do to get back to where I was two weeks ago?
