Dreamweaver FTP problems

I am using Dreamweaver CS5 to build a website for my church and it is giving me errors when attempting to connect directly to the site via the site manager.
It will connect, and immediately disconnect. Sometimes I can get it to stay connected for 2 or 3 seconds, long enough to upload the HTML file, but then it poops.
The error reads:
The connection to the remote host has been lost. Click refresh to reconnect.
On clicking "OK," I then get another error window:
An FTP error occurred - cannot get server folder information. Dreamweaver encountered an internal data error. Please try the operation again.
I do, but about 1 out of 15 attempts will result in a 2-3 second connection then it errors out again.
I have been out of the web dev game since I got out of school and started a little different career path into security, so I really am behind the times on a lot of tech. Am I doing something wrong? My provider didn't specify a port or anything outside of the basic info (address, user ID, password). I am having this error on 2 different providers (one for testing on my host, one for the actual church's host)
