    First, I was using Linksys WAG160N and blamed it for the problem.

    Then I bought another ADSL modem but problem was still there so it was not modem related.
    Any suggestions?

    Additional info:
    - Ethernet also has the same problem
    - With ethernet I was using static IP
    - With WiFi Static DNS has the same problem as the Automatic DNS
    - I disabled the TCP/IPv6, nothing changed

    The problem is in the browser.

    Go to Internet Explorer and uncheck the "Offline mode". Alternatively, remove Google Toolbar as well.


    root cause:
    Google Toolbar uses Flash to talk to native Windows API when displaying the progress bar during attachment uploads. If you put your Internet Explorer to offline mode some parts of the Windows Explorer's API are unavailable. The progress bar can't be displayed and this will result in "Attachment failed" error message.


    I know what you said about trying other browsers however this problem affects the API which all the browsers interface with. Try it.

    haxcid, thanks for the response.

    I'm a Firefox user and sometimes use Safari but not the IE.
    Neither IE, nor others has google toolbar installed.
    I checked the "Offline mode" but it is already unchecked. If I check it I can't even start the upload process.

    Today I wanted to follow a different route and started to uninstall the suspicious softwares, one by one:
    1) Unistall the IE8, nothing changed
    2) Unisntall the flash plugin, nothing changed
    3) Uninstall the Nod32, PROBLEM SOLVED!

    So I learned that disabling a virus software doesn't mean shutting it down.
    I'm glad that problem is related to a 3rd party software, not the hardware or the operating system.

    Do you know if this was version 3 of NOD32? This is known to cause network connectivity issues in some scenarios, especially with torrents and file transfers. The newer versions do not appear to suffer from these problems.
