Hi!!! If your streaming audio occasionally stops briefly and then starts back-up again, this is most likely due to your Internet connection. If your Internet connection is too slow or is busy downloading other large amounts of data, then it may intermittently not be able to handle all the streaming data as fast as necessary. In these cases, you will usually see a "buffering message" in your player. Also, some employers block access to streaming media to preserve company bandwidth. If you are able to listen to the stream from home but are unable to connect to the server from work, that may be the problem.
