Well I am pretty sure I need a new router. This one is disconnecting up to 3-4 times a day right now and the only way to get my connection back is to unplug and reset the router and modem. I need to go back to fiber optic. I will be buying a new router after the first of the year and see if that helps... if not Sop will Remote Access my computer and straighten it out I'm sure. It will be a lot easier to just let him do it. The man is an effing genius 8-)

I dont know if this will help anyone, but Ive had lowid issues with my new computer. This time we had some people come stay with us and they connected 4 different devices to our wifi, and even though Ive got a specific IP address assigned to mine, somehow there was a conflict and in my internet connection properties all the information had gone back to "detect automatically". So I still had a connection but low id. I changed these back, and using Windows 7 there is something strange that has happened twice. The gateway address had disappeared and even though I had put all the info in correctly, I had to go back into properties to put this value back in. Now back to high id.

Very nice input, stileche. :)

Now that you mention it, my modem/router is not UPnP friendly.
Actually, it kinda is because my PS3 and all other people can connect with no troubles, but if I/they need specific software/applications to connect through ports and what have you, they need to be forwarded. When I say they, I mean eMule and utorrent and blah, blah.....

It is all in the settings of the permissions/ports.

It is, who is allowed to use what and who has the permission to do so. :)

Just wanted to say thanks thanks for the great lowid related tutorials - I finally managed to crack the nut this morning. I assume a bunch of the contributing writers are doing clinic hours, so thought I would post my gratitude here.

Cheers

Forwarding with two routers

OK friends. This has been upsetting me for quite sometime now and I am desperate for a solution....

I have Netgear WGT624 Wireless Router that is connected to Beetel 410TC1 LAN Router. The WGT624 connects to the internet taking it from the Beetel router.

The IP address for Beetel is 192.168.1.1 and for Netgear it is 10.0.0.1. I have opened up DMZ on both routers but I am still on lowID. Could anyone tell me what settings should I have in order to get highID again?

punter18, you should at least set forwarding rules as well -- i wouldn't just rely on DMZ, i would use that as a last resort. Forward the ports thru only the wireless router first, and then the Lan router if its still not working.

Thanks for the input, soporific.

Actually, it was a bit cheeky, trying to forward ports with two routers. So, I registered at portforward.com, and posted my problem there. One of the guys laid out all the instructions and voila it worked. No DMZ involved- that's a big plus as well.

Well, that is way too much info for us to handle. :P

What router do you have now?

Have you forwarded the ports?

Read the first post of this topic and include all of this.... :whistle
When you post your problem, please include the following information:

Yes, sorry, I just realized that I am a moron who gave no information.

I got a Netgear WMDR3400

Had port forwarding done on the last one. Not sure what to do now.
4262 and 4272 respectively.

Ok, you say you have done it on the last one. Does this mean you have not on this new one?

Have you tried to use the.... Use UPnP to Setup Ports feature in your eMule connections?
Try ticking the little box and restart eMule. :)

Box is ticked, and nothing. I tried changing it, and then changing it back, with a few restarts and same thing. :cry:

Well, have you entered your router's setup and applied the ports to allow eMule? :?:

Also, you have not done what I asked....

Read the very first post in this topic.... page 1.

viewtopic.php?f=97&t=84719

Can you answer these please?
When you post your problem, please include the following information:

1) which version of emule you are using, especially if it is a mod version.
2) your type of internet connection, and model & type of modem. It is imperative you know if you are connected to the internet via a router, or via a modem (whether its a broadband modem, or dial-up). If you don't know this information, it is going to be very hard to help you.
3) your operating system, and a list of all 'security' applications - eg firewalls or 'total internet security' type apps. You generally don't need to list malware programs like "Spybot - Search & Destroy" or anti-virus programs but if in doubt list them all.
4) confirm if you can or cannot log in to your router (if you have one). If you can't log in (or haven't ever done so), this is why you haven't got a HighID. Concentrate on this step if this is the case. If you can't log in, don't worry about anything else, fix this first. We can help you with this, just inform us you can't log in.
5) what you have already done to try to achieve a HighID.
6) most important: please confirm you have visited the Tutorial post (see above) and try to describe where you got up to, or how the tutorial failed to help you. This way we can improve the tutorial and maybe stop the need for threads like these.
7) anything else you consider relevant.
8) please report the result you get from the 'Test ports' feature in emule options (the connection tab)

I tried doing it through the link on the tutorial post (portforward dot com), to manually do port forwarding, and after doing everything I was asked for when I was prompted to type in the static ip in a browser address bar, I did so, and got the awaited box asking me for my username and password, which I did, but they don't work. I fail authentication for some reason, even though my router page gives me the information I input so I can't be making a mistake.

Router is Netgear WNDR 3400
Running eMule v0.05a
on Windows 7 64bit

I have the Windows firewall turned off, but the Kaspersky firewall is running, however that did not interfere with my previous router and port forwarding, I was able to run eMule on high id for a long time. I basically did nothing but install a new router as my old was giving me problems.

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope

So you are saying that you have tried to change stuff like static IP settings and things?

Please reset your router to default settings....

Do you have this manual and have you read it? Also, is this your router to begin with?

http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/ ... AR2010.pdf

Read the stuff about the default passwords and what have you....

I'm sorry what? Is this my router? Obviously it is, otherwise I would not be doing this, nor asking questions, nor writing that I have been using eMule and running high ID for a long time. Whose router is it supposed to be?


Funny thing. Upon writing that my Kaspersky firewall is running, I turned it off, then restarted eMule, and it went to High ID, I then switched the firewall back on, and restarted eMule again to check if I might have to temporarily disable the firewall every time switched on eMule. And it's still on high ID. Weird that. But hey, I'm not complaining, as long as it works, who cares what happened.

So thanks to trying to help, and sorry for taking up your time deadbodyman. cheers. :)

Glad you have sorted it out, but I was talking about the PDF manual link for your router, I have posted. :lol: :P

Just making sure we were working with the same router... not whether it was your router or not. I meant the link..... :} :whistle

Here, I'll post it a few more times....

LOL, sorry, perhaps I should go back to uni and take a couple Reading Comprehension courses... Though it my defense, if I have any, I read that while working on solving the problem so read it quickly without really paying attention.
And yes it is.

Thanks again.

Don't turn your firewall off, just go into its settings and open the ports you need

4) I am not sure how to confirm this but I believe logging in with the router is not the problem
Can you connect the Internet cable from the Router directly into your computer or is that not possible with FIOS?

also, I take it you have done this:
Start (Windows XP) > Control Panel > Windows Firewall | Firewall On with "don't allow exceptions" disabled (unchecked) | Exceptions tab has eMule in it and it is allowed (checked)

Well all I can say is bring your PC to the 1st floor and bypass the Router.
Tests with Windows FW on/off.
Other then that install windows 7 again, also because you are having trouble with restarting after a shutdown.

Do you have another pc connected to router ?

Open command prompt and write "ip config/all" to see all ip addresses on your pc / second pc.

Check ip address of your pc network adapter or adapters (if you have more than one).

I think that usb network adapter is problem because it doesn't appear in network connections page.
There must be some kind of conflict.

If you have two or more computers than each pc need different static ip address.
And ports in router need to be routed (assigned) to specific pc.
