I have a new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 7 and I am having problems playing videos fron Youtube, Huhu etc. with a wireless connection. When I connect to my router with an ethernet cable the videos play smoothly. When I try to play videos with a wireless connection they stop and wait endlessly for buffering . I have another laptop that plays videos smoothly using the same wireless router so I don't think the wireless signal is the problem. When I first got thes Sony videos played smoothly so maybe something I installed is causing the problem. Do you have any thoughts on what the problem may be or how to fix it?

Could you try this speed test website on the laptop via wireless/wired and post the results here please?


This should show if there are connection/speed problems when using wireless, rather than some other problem.
