I am running OS X El Capitan on my Mac and I have a simular issue. When I start Spotify it will run for a few minutes and then it looks like my complete internet connection is not working anymore. I will still see the wifi bars and it looks like I have internet but NOTHING is working: spotify will stop and I can not browse on internet. When I stop spotify, shut down the wifi and restart the wifi everything works again. When I start Spotify again, same problems occure. Anyone??
ONE more thing! I just tried logging in with my moms account, and with that Spotify WORKS! SO what do i do she is using it so i cant just take it, but this means its nothing to do with the computer settings but something with the account, right? But what?
my spotify will still not connect to the internet even after following the steps provided. i don't know what i can do and when i try to reinstall it while downloading it says failed to download, retrying then times out. i never had any problem with it until a couple of days ago when it didn't connect to the internet at school, as i though they just blocked it but when i came home it still didnt work.
