[Help] Comedy Central video Buffering stalls

Does anyone have this similar problem or any insight on how to make it work better?:

When we try to watch Comedy Central (Colbert) on my computer - it stalls after a few minutes. It says "Video Buffering". It might play for a few more minutes or it might stall indefinitely.
I'm using firefox 3.6.12 and I believe Java, and flash are up to date.

I also did a speed test where we usually watch it. Download speed fluctuates between 6418 and 3474 kbps.
I suspect the problem is that the signal has to go through several 80 year old lath and plaster walls!

Thanks,
K

A traceroute to the IP/server hosting the actual video would be helpful. I think it's cdn.eyewonder.com ...
