Why not just use a usb to sub-mini usb and connect directly to the computer via a wire / cable which is what I do and eliminate the Network Protocol BS.
It's hard to leave the apps you're used to, but that might be the best way to go (or only way to go).We use an iphone app called Simple Transfer
I guess that's why the few iPhone users I know send pictures / videos to their email accounts and then download their pictures / videos from their email accounts.iPhones are not friendly and do not like to talk to anything not made by Apple.

Wouldn't have been easier to have bought another cheap router, hook it up to the ISP router. Than activate a wireless network on that one. To then connect your iPhone and your PC to the wireless network of the cheap router hooked up to the ISP one. Since both your PC and your iPhone are both connected to a local wireless network not needing to go through the ISP router now. Then you could have probably still transferred the pictures from your Iphone to your PC by using the a wireless network the way you did before.With simple transfer all pics etc are transferred via the local wireless network. Problem was the new isp we found ourselves with in the Philippines had blocked that ability in the router....and they were not about to unblock it for a foreigner.
So we emailed everything to ourselves and got around most of the problem that way. We also used Maccas cafes to do a small amount of what needed to be done
I remember seeing gthumb at the time, and also meeting with no success.
Now we are back in Australia, the problem is no more.
Yes, Brian is alive and kicking. I remind myself of that fact every morning !!
Thinking of that if it was all done locally and not needing an internet connection for that transfer you could have also left that cheap wireless router stand alone and not plugged into the isp router. This way you have would just have an isolated local network.
I don't know much about networking but that's how I always did it. I would request my ISP to set my ISP router in bridge mode, hook my own wireless router onto it and then setup my router how I wanted to configure it and use it. Also hooking up second router to your ISP router without setting it in bridge mode works as well. But from @Condobloke 's story it probably would have been enough to get the transfer done by just leaving that cheap wireless router standalone and hooked up to a local wireless isolated network that way.
