Windows 7: Uploading Issues

Uploading Issues

Hey all. I have a strange question, and I don't think I've seen it on here yet. I tried to upload a large (89mb) archived (.rar) file to a number of file hosts today. Including megaupload, rapidshare, and mediafire to name a few. Everytime I try, it crashes out. Meaning, it will not upload. The best error I've got reads:

Connection Interrupted

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.
I have tried uploading smaller files, and it works fine. It breaks somewhere after 20mb. I've spent over an hour on the phone with Comcast, and they were zero help. It looks like an upload cap to me, but they insist that isn't the case. I don't get it at all! So frustrating. I'm running the 7000 build, and I don't think I have changed or added anything recently. Any of my brilliant friends here have any suggestions!? Thanks guys!

consider the sites restrictions... i have no clue on the above, i dont use'em. If you are using wireless, this could be the issue. Try using another browser or loading IE without addons. If still persists do a line test at dslreports, or do a ping -t to the webhost, and/or do a tracert to the webhost... while you are at it, do a ping -t to your dns (comcast) and your own network. If you see any interupts or timeouts then this COULD be the problem, but not necessarily. Could be a hardware issue then.... troubleshoot down the line.

Lastly.... the rar isnt pasworded, right? lol

Hey Digger. Thank you for the reply. I did everything you said, and didn't come up with any problems. Everything seems to be functioning correctly. The file is in fact pass protected, lol. But I tried the same file w/o the pass protection, and it still failed. I have zero clue what is going on. Like I said earlier, files up to 20-ish mb go through fine. It's once they gets bigger, it just stops. All of the hosts allow files larger than the one I'm trying to upload, so that's not it.

Are you using Firefox for the uploads? If so, have you tried IE8 instead?

There was a similar problem reported in a Firefox forum last year.

Thanks for the response Dragonfly. I am actually using FF. But I've tried uploading from IE8 and Opera. No luck. Same sort of error with both.
