I'm sorry about my last post... I had the two programs confused, lol. For some reason, I wasn't allowed to edit...?

Anyway, whenever I try to play a video in Windows Media Player or I go to a webpage that has an embedded WMP video in it, my internet connection breaks. I've called my cable modem provider about it, and they told me that the problem is on WMP's end. I don't know what to do.

Have you ever had this problem? What can I do to resolve this?

What version of WMP (did you try updating it)? What sort of connection - cable, broadband, dial-up? OS?

hiya, that didn't help :( but thanks.

I updated to WMP 10 and it still didn't solve the problem. I'm currently using a cable modem, if that helps. Can anyone else help me, please? I called Dell reguarding the issue, but I can't get any help unless I pay them 49.99... not happening.
