Network stall/rebuffering problem when playing music over a wireless home network

Post by Chris Swoy » Fri, 12 Nov 2004 12:17:31


I have a new iMac and a powerbook (both running OS 10.3.6)
connected via a wireless home network. I have told iTunes to share
files and I can play songs on the iMac, over the network, on the
powerbook in another room. Works fine with small song files, but
when I use the Apple Lossless Recorder to record songs onto the
iMac (which yields bigger files), I every so often get the message:
Network Stalled Rebuffering System, and the music quits while it
bebuffers.

This happens even when the iMac is plugged into the airport base
station and when the icon on the powerbook shows a full strength
network connection (the connection is strengthen by a nearby
AirPort Express Base Station with AirTunes).

Any thoughts on fixes?

Thanks,
