Make sure you have updated your router to the latest version of its
BIOS.  These cheapo-home devices generally have numerous stupid
problems...that I won't get into.  (See the BIOS changelogs for things
like: computers connected to wireless cannot connect to wired computers)

This could also be a failure of the router to upload a large amount of
data (since preview/save has to send the entire page back).  After
updating your BIOS, see if you can upload anything anywhere else.
