NetGear Router & FTP Problems

My new Netgear firewall/router/dsl modem was not cooperating with FTP sessions at all.  I couldn’t reliably publish pages for our user group or my LLC.  FrontPage couldn’t list any pages on the remote system, FTP timed out, ncftp via Cygwin wasn’t any better.


A quick bounce to Netgear’s product page showed that my “new” router is actually a fairly old model and the firmware was waaaay out of date.  A quick download of the new firmware followed by a quick flash of the new version and Poof!  Everything’s shiny and working fine.  (Frontpage still sucks, though.)
