    I am trying to play a video on my mini laptop. It keeps hanging up and saying this

    Error code: N8102-106

    An internet or home connection problem is preventing playback. Please check your internet connection and try again.
    I am on cable modem and have the laptop on it via cat 5 cable tapped off the router. I have a desktop on the same router that is able to play the videos...????

    Compare what speed you're paying for with the speed you're actually getting.

    /reboot the router + modem

    Update the nic driver and check your laptop firewall. Also see if you have QoS set on the network adapter.

    Go to Device Manager and then Properties for the network adapter. One of the tabs let's you set various options for the nic. Another tab will reveal the driver properties and has a button for updating the driver.

    Your throughput on the network looks fine to stream video...

    I've seen this on Firefox - dumping the cache seemed to resolve it, oddly enough.

    :lol3 It's not the <i>length</i> of the cable, it's the <i>quality</i>.

    Sheesh, it's a wonder they can get that innerwebs to even flow uphill.

    I have quality cables, but the one I WAS using was 75ft long, and coiled up, the one I am using now is not coiled and 25ft long and the download speed went form 6.34mbs to 12.5 JUST changing the cable, BUT that didn't make it work either....

    That much degradation over that little cable tells me it wasn't a quality cable (or one of the ends was fucked up).
