    Hi,

    I hope someone can help me. My PC is an HP Pavilion A6137c and my OS is Vista and I currently 4 GB of memory. My DSL is with AT&T. My DSL speed is 1.5. When I try to watch live streaming it freezes and stops. Does this mean I need to increase my DSL service? I have a Motorola 2210-02 modem that really feels hot to the touch. I thought this might have something to do with it.

    Do I need a new computer?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No modem (nor modem/router) should feel hot. The air vents are clogged, or you are not giving it sufficient space, or it is defective.

    Stops completely? It does not resume streaming after a pause?

    I assume by "1.5" you mean 1.5 Mbps download. Is that what you measure with something like Speedtest.net?
