Problem with FTP uploads - Network issue

I have a home network that crawls to a halt when any of the PC's uploads using FTP.

What happens is that the home network crawls to an halt. The PC uploading is fine.

I suspect the Netgear DG834 as if I put the PC onto a switch with the other PC's - so that there is only one connection from the switch to the DG834 - while speeds are slow there does not seem to be such an issue.

The minute I plug the PC's into the DG834 ports - the speed grounds to  halt!

Thanks for the update.  Well...obviously this is not normal.  I only have a couple more ideas left.

First, are the PC IP addresses static or dynamic?  If dynamic, try static.  

Second, download the Microsoft Network Monitor.  This will show all network traffic in realtime, and may give a clue on what is slowing down the connection.

Hello,

I think we need a little more clarification.  Is the DG834 connected directly to the Internet or is it connected to this other switch that you speak of?  Is the FTP upload slow when uploading to an Internet site or transferring data to another computer on the network?

To clarify - the DG834 has four network ports - 4 computers plugged into that. DG834 also connected to internet. It is internet access and network access that slows down

If you connect another switch - then one lead from switch to the Dg834 - access is fine.

If you have not already, go to netgear's website and key in your exact router model number.  This should bring about a firmware update download.

Let me text diagram your setup from what I understood when it halts:

                       Internet
                           v
                      DG834
    v             v              v              v
PC 1        PC 2         PC 3        PC 4

And this is when it acts normal:

                       Internet
                           v
                       DG834
    v             v              v              v
PC 1        PC 2         PC 3      Switch
                                                  v
                                                PC 4

Is this correct?

I have the latest firmware on the DG834 and it made no difference.

I can confirm that you summary of the network is correct
