    OK! I’m trying to solve this issue with streaming video. Most, but not all streaming videos are choppy. Videos that are on the hard drive are clean, no issues. The onboard card is; Intel(R) PRO/1000 CT Network Connection I thought it was an issue with that onboard card so I installed another PCI card to test with; Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC Old I know but still choppy. So I ruled out the card. I tried Chrome, still choppy. Firefox! The tried and true… choppy… IE… I won’t touch it. I have 2 other systems wired and wireless that can run streaming with no issues. Then I set a clean boot… No change. The video sites are Wimp, Google video and noob. I know it is not the connection as the others have no issues.

    Suggestions please!

    People have been having trouble recently with their Realtek network adapter. Updating the drivers has help tremendously.

    Thanks Phantom010. According to Realtek I have there latest drivers 6.111. And Intel says that the device is unknown or unsupported! :(? Strange. Got to go to work. I'll check back later.

    The network adapter may indeed be too old for that system. You could try another one.
