Hi peeps,

Hope you can help me with this, it's been driving me NUTS for months. :thumbsup:

It's often the case that, when browsing and entering some data into text-boxes, drop-down lists, check-boxes, etc, I cannot successfully submit the page once I've entered my data (after a minute or so the browser shows the usual 'Connection was reset' page).

Also, there are times when I post to forums that I cannot successfully post more than a certain amount of text (several paragraphs?). On other forums I cannot even start a new topic.

I've noticed that this seems to happen (though no exclusively) with PHP-based sites. This happens in both IE and Firefox.

I'm using Avast Anti-virus, if that's related. My room-mate uses the same wireless connection and has no problems.

HELP! :flowers:

Do you use a firewall? If so which one and have you checked your firewall settings for the websites in question? My firewall has privacy settings which can block all mobile code.

Have you checked your cookie settings for the websites in question both in your browser and any firewall you might be using? Sometimes you need to accept cookies in order to send forms. I only accept them for session - even the persistent cookies, which isn't possible in IE by the way.

Also, concerning the connection reset: is this happening when you try to send the info. or when you are filling out the page? If the latter, has the page finished loading before you begin to type? I would strongly suggest waiting until the page has finished loading before beginning to type just in case you have to start loading the page again.

Because I am on dial-up, sometimes what I do, is wait for the page to finish loading, disconnect from the internet, fill out the form off-line, reconnect to the internet, clear cookies and cache, open a new tab, log back in to the site if necessary then go back to the first tab to submit the information. I've even done that when working on this site.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
