When watching videos on youtube my 1 meg connection buffers evry15 secs or so is there any settings I can adjust to optimise streaming and reduce buffering?

Well for a start, you aint on 1 meg you are on 2 meg.

your ping is high,

You have a theoretical DL speed of 210-230 KB/s youtube at most is 20-30KB/s

does seem like a ISP contention issue to me

Forgot about the upgrade. Not sure what you mean about ISP contention I can download at 200kbs no probs, just can't stream. Anyone else had this?
