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!
