Failed uploading of web content over ADSL connection.

We used to use a dialup connection to transfer approx 20kb of data (not a lot!) to our web site folder using Adobe Pagemill 3.0 upload on Win XP Pro pc.

We now have an ADSL connection and are having problems uploading our page.
The connection is made successfuly with the web server but data transfer stops at 8kb.
However if a file size less than 8kb is uploaded the transfer is complete.

The router is firewalled however the ftp port 21 has been allowed inbound and outbound access always.

All settings have been confirmed as correct with the web host provider and there are no other internet connectivity problems as confirmed with the ADSL provider.

Has anyone experienced this issue and resolved it?

Many thanks in advance
Pete Sullivan

Sound like your MTU settings are incorrect..   this is a common cause of this..  Here is the information and fix for you..  This is specifically to take care of the computer side..  Take a look at your router also...

Change the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) Size

BTW:  I imagine you are using PPPoE for your ADSL connection, so the MAX size should be 1492...  :)

Since I have a sec, thought I would clarify this for you..  PPPoE adds overhead to the data packet, of 8 bytes...   If your settings are wrong, then you will experience this kind of performance..

Just in case you are running XP, here is some additional info..

In ie advanced proporties select passive ftp. Std ftp uses high ports for data transfers.

As above, these tests are very good in helping optimise the connection

Thanks for you suggestions however none of them seemed to work.

I have just found a freeware program called FTP Commander which will complete a successful upload.

I can only think there is an incompatibility with some programs trying to connect over ADSL connections?

Anyway thanks for trying to help with this.

Peter.
