ok...I have a router from which I have several pcs wired/wirelessly connected, not networked together. I have a pc with vista 64bit ultimate and all the others are xp 32bit. All have windows updates, all have same av (avast) all use same ie7 etc etc
all settings as i see are same (subject to vista/xp differences) at defaults.
I can upload a file/photo to say photobucket/imageshack etc from my vista pc no problem! The xp machines however time out and fail. I can get the browse, select the file (even same file i upped from vista machine) but when i click upload it hangs, says done when it hasnt etc...
what the [bleep] is wrong? I switch off av/fw etc still same...I have thought router but if vista ok what can it be?
the only thing i can think of is a xp patch is preventing me?
any suggestions would be gratefully received!
oh btw, I have even done a clean xp install to no avail :S 9the only thing i have different on my router is a 'fixed' port number forwrded to my vista machine and remote open to my vista (again on a fixed port) - and nope they not port 80 :S
thanks in advance
