Exclamation Really strange networking problems


I have this really strange networking problem that has been happening for months now (it coincidentally started when I wiped gentoo from my machine and went to another distro).

I can't upload files to site like imgur, pastebin, mediafire, ect, I can browse the web fine but can't upload files to these kinds of sites. (Some times pastebin or similar sites works with small pastes but that is it). In some webkit browsers like midori or chrome the uploads go part way (sometimes to 100% depending on the file) then freeze, with Firefox they are stuck at 0%.

This issue shows up on multiple distros such as ubuntu, fedora and opensuse (all of which worked fine on this machine before, not even a version change or new release).
I have tried a reset with my router: no difference.
Reset cable modem: no difference
Connecting directly to my cable modem instead of router: no difference
The issue is present on multiple machines and on live cd's as well.
The issue does not appear when I run windows or if I run linux under a virtual machine in windows so I do not think it is a hardware related issue.

Any ideas?
EDIT: Seems like I can't psot on forums either, had to boot into windows to post this.

How are uploads handled, by ftp or http?
Are you running firewall, what are your configurations that my tend to delimit the uploads?

I suspect it is only a matter of configuration... somewhere, in your browser, or the ftp client, or the firewall. But I might have mistaken also.

Good luck.

Not sure, I could try to upload to ftp or http via the commandline but I don't have a server to connect to.

Do not think issue is firewall related, on every distro i have tried I have disable the software firewalls to see if it was causing the problem.

Try talk to your internet provider. The way I see it your connection is delimited from their point.

Built in NIC or PCI card? Wireless or Ethernet? Have you tried a different NIC?

Could be all kinds of things. It seems unlikely to be the hardware if windows works, but issues with firmware can make things not so simple as that. It's possible that a subsequent install of a distro updated the firmware to something that Linux doesn't like but Windows is dealing with OK.

When you switch from Windows to Linux is it a cold or warm boot? I've seen windows leave devices in states that Linux won't talk to, but a power down makes it work.

I believe that Linux loads firmware on a cold boot but not on a warm boot, but don't quote me on that. So Windows my be loading the firmware it likes then leaving the card in a state that stops Linux from doing the same.

As I say, try another nic to see if the same issue occurs. What about another machine, a mates laptop or something, same problem?
