    Hello. I guess I'll start with the set up. First I run Win 98SE and have Pacbell DSL.

    On both browsers, IE and Netscape, when I try to click on a video stream using WMP I get the same message everytime. "Unable to access media you may not be connected to the network". When I try to use Real Player on a link/video I get a illegal operation and it closes the browser. The only player that doesn't seem to be effective is Quicktime.

    Also I should metion that when I start up the DSL on IE it always gives me a window that says not connected "work offline" or "Try again". I click on try again and it always works no problem. I'm not sure if that is effecting both players or what. For instance it seems like the WMP is opeating as if it's not connected and just not trying. Maybe Real player too and closing down the browsers. I could be way off base so if anyone knows what's going on I appreciate any and all help. The only thing that is preventing me from thinking that IS the problem is that netscape boots up fine, but I still get the same problems of both WTM and Real player as previously mentioned.

    A little side note, if you could tell me how to bypass that stupid work offline try again window that would be great too. Thanks in advance. End of line

    I should also mention that up until a couple months ago both players worked fine. I did uninstall and reinstall as well with the same results. Once again thanks for any and all help. End of line
