Bonk uploading from mobile broadband free

Bonk uploading from mobile broadband free

RoyReed  Pro User  says:

I can't upload via my mobile broadband connection (UK T-Mobile laptop dongle).

* Use both the web upload page and Uploadr. Does the upload fail for one or both?

Upload fails for both web upload (new and old versions) and Uploadr.

* Briefly turn off the power to any broadband modems and routers to reset the network connection.

Tried to no effect.

* If you connect wirelessly, move your computer closer to the wireless access point, or 'plug in'.

The 'access point' (dongle) is plugged directly into my laptop.

* Temporarily turn off any antivirus or firewall software and try an upload. If you are using AVG's anti-virus software, please disable their Link Scanner as there are known conflicts with that software. If the upload is successful, look to see if you can add Uploadr to an exceptions list of applications that can access the Internet.

Tried turning off firewall (ZoneAlarm Security Suite) to no effect.

* If you are a regular Firefox user on Windows, make sure Internet Explorer is not set to "Work Offline" mode (this only applies to older versions- make sure you have the latest version).

Latest versions of both Firefox and IE8 (not in offline mode). Tried uploading from both - neither worked.

I can upload via email.

Here's the result of my pathping:

Trace complete.

I'm assuming that T-Mobile broadband is the problem, but does anyone have a solution?
