    I have a 4 gen touch and use an app at work on wi-fi called Iheart radio. That app worked flawlessly for several months. Suddenly the app began to continuously revert to buffering, resulting obviously in the music cutting in and out. I verified that it is not the app, it works perfect on my home wi-fi & I have tried another streaming radio app at work with the same results. :mad:

    I know this may not necessarily be an ipod issue, but thought I would ask to see if anyone has any suggestions. The only possible change that I know of since the app stopped working my workplace upgraded the wi-fi. However, if anything it seems that it should work better.

    Any ideas would be appreciated :)

    Your workplace network could also be restricting streaming radio purposely to stop people from using it. At my workplace, for example, streaming works for a song or two then stops. When you refresh the page, it says "we have detected that this is a streaming audio site, you can use it but we'll throttle it so good luck" and lets you through again, but only for a few songs before it again gets cut off.

    That is a great theory and I am sure many workplaces would implement that type of restriction. However, I work on a University campus where students are provided a on-campus housing, thus I do not believe that is the issue. Thanks for your thoughts!
