If I try to watch a streamed programme on BBCi player the programme stops after a few minutes and spinning disk icon appears, the wireless connection is then lost and I have to reboot. Have upgraded to Firefox 3.0.11 and FlashPlayer 10 but problem persisits. This does not happen if BBCi Player watched in IE7 only in Firefox

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect to www.bbc.co.uk, click iplayer link
2.click tp play a programme
3.watch (and wait for symptoms to appear)
Actual Results:  
Programme starts to play, after about 2 minutes pauses as if streaming, does not restart and wireless broadband link lost (only lost when doing this)PC has to be rebootred to re-establish wireless connection.

Expected Results:  
should have played streamed programme without interuption

This problem does not happen if BBCi player watched in IE7. Wireless connection stable unless watching iplayer in Firefox.
And how can this be a Mozilla.org issue ?
The video is played by an external plugin and not Firefox and Firefox or the plugin touches your wireless connection.

That you have to reboot your system to get wireless working is the sign that this is a dirver issue and it doesn't matter if you don't get this with IE.
