    I seem to be having some problems with streaming content but for the life of me I cannot figure out what is wrong. The problem is that even though I have a 20+ Mbps connection I cannot even play medium quality videos from crunchyroll.com. But I can play HD video on youtube with little problem. The videos will constantly start and stop to buffer. I have tried everything that I can think of to fix the problem to no avail. I will list everything that I have tested and done to fix it below.

    - I first made sure that the flash setting were correct.
    -Tested connection with OpenDNS:
    Code:

    -Also tested with Google Public DNS with same results.

    -Tried to switch from WAN connection to Wi-Fi connection (Separate cards and drivers). Same.

    -Used direct connection, by-passing router. Same.

    -Ran a Linux distro to test outside Windows. Same.

    -Connected other roommates computer to connection. No problems.

    That is all that I could remember doing to try to fix it. From what I can figure it has to be a hardware problem since it occurs in both Windows 8 and a LiveCD Linux. There was also no problem on my roommates computer. Thanks.

    how are you connected to the router - cable or wireless - if wireless , try with a cable and see if that works OK

    have you installed new drivers for the network adapters

    I have tried to connect with a wired connection and a wireless. I have also tried to by-pass the router and plug directly. None of these has helped. I have also checked on my drivers and all of them are the latest ones.

    Yes it is the same. I had my roommate use his computer on the same direct connection and he had no problems. I assumed it was a hardware problem but the trouble I am having is isolating what hardware is causing the problem. I have two separate cards for WAN and Wi-Fi so I doubt both of them are causing it. I just don't know hardware enough to figure it out.

    and both of those do not work when using a LiveCD Linux.

    I went ahead and tested them again. The first was on wi-fi, the second was on wired, and the last was directly wired without the router. The videos still do not stream properly.

    sounds like a hardware issue somewhere common to both controllers - so probably the motherboard , as you have tried two different software OS

    If you want to you could try UBUNTU Standalone CD - just as a third option - probably unnecessary
