Hi, I have a problem with WUs upload. It lasts for several months and I do not know how to fix it. When finished WU is uploading to your server my internet connection terminates. Not every WUs causes this. About 70% is uploaded without a problem. DSL modem reset reconnects my pc to internet but new gpugrid wu upload attempt sends it down again after several seconds. Sometimes 10-20 DSL modem resets help, sometimes not. Next day this upload continues without a problem.
No other project that I'm computing does this.
Does anybody know what should I do? I would like to proceed GPUGRID on my comp but with this problem lasting it will be replaced with MilkyWay or something else. I use Win7 64bit and modem ASUS WL-600G.
Thank for replays in advance.

A recent discussion at ClimatePrediction pointed the finger at AVG - some people found that temporarily booting into 'Safe mode with networking' helped. Not a long-term solution, but might help you isolate the problem.

Is that because you don't use AVG, because the 'Safe mode' trick won't work with a GPU project (BOINC will suspend the tasks because it can't find the graphics driver - sorry, should have thought of that), or something else?

Discussion in that same ClimatePrediction thread is continuing. ESET ESS has now been found to be blocking uploads, as well as AVG.

It seems the reason is the NIC driver. Old version 2.4.7.4 of Attansic L1 seems working good now. I will see ...

Sounds like a networking issues, of some sort. Could be your NIC, router/modem, your ISP cutting you off, or as you say a driver.

You have a couple of machines listed as having a GTX275. I presume this is the same machine. You can merge them through the "Your account" web page if they are the same computer.

Anyway I noticed that the win7 machine has BOINC 6.10.18. You might want to upgrade your BOINC client to the current recommended one (6.10.36 as I write this) which might help with the comms side, including restart of failed uploads.
