Default queue stalling - behind a router - ARGG!!

ok well i could start off by telling you what version of flashfxp i am using but since this problem isn't version spacific i can skip that part....

here is what i have setup:

cablemodem to a DLink PIECE OF **** wireless *802.11b* router.. that router has 2 pc's, one is mine (wireless) and one is my roommates (wired)

the problem is on both of the pc's, what pisses me off is its intermitent ;/..

here is what happens.. SOMETIMES when i queue stuff, after the first file or so , it will stall , soemtimes it will hang long enough for me to get disconnected *60second idle*


Skipping: teg-cmiyc-cd1.part12.rar (sits here for 10seconds)
227 Entering Passive Mode (xxx,99,xxx,10,15,255)
PORT xxx,99,xxx,10,15,255 (sits here for 20seconds-1min)
200 PORT Command successful.
STOR whatever.rar
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for whatever.rar
RETR whatever.rar

check this out..

Transferred: whatever.rar 14.31 MB in 7.09 (2,064.91 KBps)

good speeds right? nope.. cause it takes 30seconds-2min inbetween files, ,usually i am reconnecting after every other file... so my fxp that should take 10+min is taking 2+hr just cuase of this damn stalling thing !!!

i stick myself in DMZ mode , no apparent change (remember this problem isn't consistant , it is USUALLY happening but like 10% of the time i don't have a problem)..

no software firewalls on my pc, also i just formated and installed win2k w/ sp3 (so its not my os)

any ideas on a workaround ? is this 100% my router? there is no way to change ANY kind of timeout setting on this pos so please don't ask me to do that , just give me a 'fix' ) hehe

anything will be greatly appreachated ..

it is most likely your router that closes idle connections.
since you can't change such value in your router, try checking "send noop during transfer" on "proxy/firewall/ident" tab. it might solve your problem, keep in mind that this option is incompatible with some servers and will cuase problems.

Default ;/

thanks bro, i think i tried that already and got some errors back from the server but i'll give it another go..

my other option is to go from cablemodem -> my pc -> another NIC -> wireless switch -> another pc that is just used for browsing the web ..

that is an option but not one i wanted to take .. didn't want to use ICS hehe ..

thanks guys..
