Hi,

I can work all day checking email with Mail or using safari or firefox to test web pages. However, I have to do is try an use Dreamweavers FTP and it will hose up my router within 5 to 10 minutes. I'll start getting server not responding messages. Then If I check my network settings I have no IP address. This affects all the computers on my LAN. I cycle the power on the router, a linksys BEFW11S4, and it all works fin again until I start using Dreamweaver.

Any Ideas? Has anyone else ran into this? I'd hate to have to use a separate FTP client. I like the Check-in Check-out feature.

I'm not sure if Dreamweaver is doing something the router does not like or maybe it is just a crap router.

Any suggestions woul be great.

Hi,

It seems that my router was having toruble. I replaced the BEFW11S4 with a WRT54G V4 and is has been working fine with all my app. Just to confirm I put the old one back and everyone I tried I could get dreamweaver to hose the router. The New one seems to function properly though.

Thanks

Regardless of where the problem was in this case, Dreamweaver's FTP has been absolute gash since day one.

I agree. Though I was struggling with where to try and fix the problem. Was it something that DW was doing that the router did not like or the router not properly handling certain packets? If the problem continues, Currently the new router seems to have corrected the issue, I'll swtich to fetch or something.

........if I may slip this in here....

Has a text editor (freeware) for panther with "live to FTP" editting been developed yet?

I know this has been addressed before, but I'm having the usual troubles with the search feature.
