I want to use a radio player



I have Windows Media Player 9 series on my WinXP Pro machine, and have tried to use the Radio Tuner. It comes up with the "work offline" feature checked, which does not allow the Radio Tuner to function (even though my computer is online by ethernet connection all the time). If I uncheck the "work offline" feature, the old dial-up connection box that I used to use for my old phone modem (which is still in the computer, but not hooked up to a phoneline) comes up, prompting me to connect through the modem--even though I am already connected to the internet.

Can someone tell me how to get WMPlayer 9 to work as a radio tuner? Or, do you suggest another program to use for Internet "radio"? Years ago, I listened to some radio programs through Realplayer--is that a good choice?

I have tried Pandora, Waffler, and it does not work on my machine. My PC does not meet minimum system requirements. I think the BIOS on my machine is 2003.

But, I remember tuning in to some radio stations that also put their broadcasts online in the late 90s, and often got fairly decent response on my 56K modem. I would imagine I could get great audio-only--unless the stations are sending more on their internet feeds to take advantage of faster connections with the better sound possible.
