    how far away is it from the source? my house is older and has lots of issues with wireless even though it's just a few rooms over.. it probably is buffering, because it's having a hard time maintaining a stable connection

    Mine does the same thing, and it's only about 10 feet away!

    I had the same problem as well. As soon as I changed some of the settings the music streaming worked just fine. I think it was having problems because with everything enabled and running, the device was overworked.

    I don't enjoy the compromise :(

    I'd like to have the device a little bit larger and able to handle everything it is supposed to do at one time; rather than have a device that is small but can only do a few things at once.

    Everything else that Apple makes small works -- iPod ... Mac mini ... Powerbook ... etc.

    Or wireless phones @ 2.8GHz? Mine is in a cupboard about 40 ft. away, on a different floor, and works fine all the time.

    You may want to try a different WiFi channel.
