I have been receiving no error messages.  When I am dealing with PHP 
scripts I get a PHP script download on the browser.

The download is fine and I am able to get all webpages to display.  I 
just can't do anything that requires anything more than a couple KB of 
upload.  I can't post to forums, I can't use PHPmyAdmin, and the like. 
I went to and got normal upload (3 Mbs), but got 0 Upload.

Not recently, but when I had this problem in the past I have used 
Firefox, Opera, and Konqueror.  All had the same problem.

I tried both Nautilus and Gftp.

I mostly left the router to factory default except that I enabled the 
wireless with WPA and set up my ISP using PPPoe.
