streaming music connection drops out

Hello
I joined Plusnet acouple of weeks ago and all went very smoothly..  I just have one strange problem which is that when streaming music
using my internet radio  which is wireless or using media player on my PC which is pluggedd into the Thomson router the connection drops randomly..
The router does not loose sync but only the media player looses connection.... In the router log this message appears every time this happens..
FIREWALL icmp check (1 of 3): Protocol: ICMP
Src ip: 60.240.165.230 Dst ip: 87.115.148.202
Type: Destination Unreachable Code: Host Unreacheable
Any ideas please folks?

Bit more info
Just watching router log now... When widows media player drops out sometimes it does reconnect
in this case I just get these in the log...
FIREWALL event (1 of 1): created rules
then
FIREWALL event (1 of 1): deleted rules
Not sure if thats relevant...

mmmm  Get's more interesting...
Plug in my old ancient Dlink 504t ADSL router...
All problems disappear....
Are the Thomson routers known as being buggy?

Hi popeyeuk,
I would suggest disabling uPNP in the router.
go to the router homepage>toolbox>gaming & application sharing>configure (top right) and deselect uPNP if that affects other applications then you may need to create firewall rules for them.
