I'm still using ASP 3.0 (Classic) on one of my very old projects.
Every time I'm uploading a file to the server using the ASP Upload the server doesn't
respond to any other web requests! I cannot browse any other pages from the same

This is really annoying as I have to wait until the upload is finished so I can browse my
website again!
Do you guys have any solution?

Have you tried uploading via FTP and checked if it makes a difference ?

Usually IE and Firefox will limit the number of active connections to a website (usually 2). I see this happen all the time on sites I control, and upload too. I have found no work around for it except having it upload to different domain, then the rest of the active site, e.g. uploads.example.com where the main site is www.example.com.

Since you can run ASP and ASP.Net side by side have you thought of replacing your ASP upload page with a .Net version and see if it makes a difference? You wouldn't have to rewrite your whole website, just that one piece.
