You can upload to any place that is publicly accessible: Google Drive, Dropbox, Cloudshark ,etc. I recommend Cloudshark ( When you upload the file, make note of the URL that Cloudshark generates, and then edit your question and paste in the URL.

Well, TCP does not retransmit segments just for fun.
So the filter tcp.analysis.retransmission shows you which segments were lost
