For whatever reason, I cannot connect to any of the radio stations. Why is this? I've got the latest version of iTunes, I'm on a wireless network, I've got OS X 10.4.6, and a 4 x 2.5 GHz G5. Please help.

    Do you have any proxy settings that might be getting in the way? Can you connect if you hardwire your Mac to the router? Can you play any stations not on the default list, such as any of the stations on Live365 (if a Live365 station does not start right up, look in your default download location for a pls or m3u file and double click on it)?

    Proxy settings are entered in the Network settings of System Preferences. If you don't remember adding any, then I doubt anything is there.

    I take it you are on a neighborhood, apartment, work, or dorm network and not your own if you do not know where your router is. This makes it harder to rule out the wireless connection.

    If Live365 is also not working and you are on a wider network as I assumed above, then the owner of the network may have set up some security and firewall settings that is interfering with your streaming.

    Do you have any security software installed, such as Norton Internet Security? If so, can you disable it and try streaming again?
