        This update resolves the issue of Microsoft Windows Media Player not being able to play streaming media if you are using multiple remote access connections. Windows Media Player uses the Wininet InternetGetConnectedStateEx function to detect remote access connections and local area network (LAN) connections. However, the function cannot detect the remote access connection correctly if there are multiple remote access connections. If you have multiple remote access connections running, Windows Media Player may detect that your computer is offline.
