Upload problems with Windows XP SP2


R

rhesus.monk

I'm having trouble with uploads to web sites on my Windows XP SP2
machine. I basically can't upload any files in in a web request. If
I try going to a bandwidth test page, it does the download test fine,
but then won't even complete the upload test. I can't send emails
through my web email client. I can't upload files to web pages. Each
time I try it hangs and then times out.

It shouldn't be a browser problem. It is the same with Firefox and
IE.

I thought maybe it was a hardware problem. I tried switching out the
network cable, tried switching ports on my router, I even installed a
different network card with the same results on the new card. Clearly
it shouldn't be a hardware problem.

It isn't the internet connection. I have another computer going
through the same router to the same internet connection and it doesn't
have the problem. I can upload files over the network to the other
computer (though it does seem a little slower than download).

Firewall is turned off. I really don't know what else to look for.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm stumped.

Thanks,
Monk

I really was expecting that I might get some form of reply.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Is there somewhere else I could go
where I'd be more likely to get help with this issue?

Please note that this is Usenet and you will not get instant reponses.

For more testing, you will nee to turn off anti-virus systesm and
firewall so as to see if these are not blocking your uploads.

You should include details on how you are connecting to the Internet
(dial-up or broadband) and if the "problematic" PC is directly
connected to the Internet.

As with most XP slow access problems, it seem that you should check
for any updated / revised device drivers directly from the device
manufacturer. Never get drivers from Windows Updates.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Sorry, I didn't mean to be impatient. I
figured after two days most people who were likely to respond had
already read my post and passed it over.

This is a broadband connection (Bellsouth DSL to be specific). There
is a DSL modem that directly connects to my ISP and establishes my
PPPoE connection, then my router connects to the modem for the
internet connection and distributes it to the computers on my
network. As mentioned in my earlier email, the "problematic" PC is
one of several on the network, but is the only one having this issue.

I have gotten all of the newest device drivers for my NIC and my
motherboard from the internet. The interesting thing is that I have
tried TWO different NICs with the exact same result. So I don't think
it is a NIC or driver problem. Unless this would somehow be related
to the way that the motherboard interacts with a NIC?? One of the
NICs was an on-board NIC, the other was a PCI that I installed.

I can ping out with no packet loss. Tracert runs and connects to any
server I designate with no problems or inordinate latency between
hops.

Misconfigured firewall blocking FTP ports?

There's no firewall.

Do you know how to do ftp in the command line?
It might show errors that are hidden if you do it via IE etc.

I do know how to FTP from command line. Unfortunately, I don't have
an account on any server that I can try uploading to VIA FTP. I do
have an account that I can use to do SFTP transfers. Using WinSCP I
do see the same problem when trying to upload a file. It begins to
send the file by sending a few bytes, then waits for network events
and times out. The log file output when I set it to the highest debug
level looks like the below.

Thanks,
Jason

OK, so it's me again. I've got a bit more information on this
problem. It has been a while since I posted. For a recap on my
problem:

- I can't upload files or large web requests
- Windows XP SP2 machine.
- If I try going to a bandwidth test page, it does the download test
fine, but won't complete the upload test.
- Each time I try it hangs and then times out.
- It is the same with Firefox and IE.
- It is not the port on my router, nor the network cable
- I have another machine on the same network that is not having this
problem

So as it turns out, if I unplug this machine from the router and plug
directly into my DSL modem (which also acts like a router and DHCP
server), I no longer have the problem. What the heck could be going
on? How could the router be treating one computer so vastly different
than another? They have the same version on WinXP installed. I don't
even know where to begin looking. What could be different between the
two?

Hi Monk,

Did you eventually get some answers?

I have encountered the same problem on my Windows XP machine. From one day to the next, uploads stopped working. Includes web upload, outlook and other ftp programs.

I tried to connect directly to the dsl and thats how i can post here and also upload.

-No firewall or virus software her either. reinstalled xp, office and network drivers.no change.

Appreciate any help

Ken
