Why is playback choppy for certain streams even though I have a high speed connection?

First, remember that even high speed connections sometimes suffer service degradations. Cable modem users share a connection with many others in their neighborhood, so during peak hours bandwidth availability may be limited.You may want to try manually setting your connection speed in Windows Media Player, to avoid any issues of it misdetecting your connection. 

To check and fix this:

Click Tools
Click Options
Under the Performance tab, manually specify your connection speed

Users of firewalls should also make sure they have a fully updated version of their software, with the latest drivers. Finally, please make sure that you have all current drivers installed for your audio card. Some older cards have conflicts with Windows Media Player; the latest drivers will usually fix this problem.
