I am curious to know what most of you use for your FTP uploads.

I have been using my "network places" to log directly in, but the uploads prove to be lengthy - even with DSL.

Yesterday, I started experimenting with CUTE FTP Pro (30 day free trial). While the uploads proved to be very fast. Errors in the uploads cause install errors, where I have to go back, and install individual files or folders that were missed completely or incorrectly.

Anyone use something fast, yet dependable?

I use a free FTP program called Filezilla.

You can download it and try it out at filezilla.sourceforge.net.

It works on all Windows operating systems, has lots of features, and is very easy to use.

Filezilla is a FTP client used to connect to FTP servers. This is likely all you will need to use for uploading and downloading files.

Filezilla SERVER is what you need to install if you want to host your own FTP server where other people connect to you and download/upload files.
