For the past couple days, my player (a Classic SB) has constantly been pausing and "buffering." Is this an internet issue or is it something with the player/software? BTW, I'm running it wireless.

Thanks

Do you use SqueezeCenter/Squeezebox Server/Logitech Media Server? Or mysqueezebox.com?

Any changes to your network lately?

Have you tried power cycling your router?

I use Logitech Media Server.
No changes.
I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

It could be a new WAP on the same channel near you. If you have a wireless PC, install inSSIDer and see what else is in your area and change your channel accordingly. (Rather than AUTO, use the lowest channel selectable.)

You might want to make sure you have wireless security enabled since you neighbors might use you connection otherwise.

Rebooting your WAP is also free and effective.

Rebooting the router seems to have worked. No 'buffering' since.

Thanks!

Brain fart is a popular term (in English.)
