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.

I believe I have the usb network card plugged in, but it does not appear on my network connections page.

Well first I had to dump my ball and chain, then I moved, got a new ISP and viola! HighID!

It has been an interesting, up and down winter. I would trade a hot piece of ass for a HighID any day! :pir8

(Plus my download speed doubled and my upload speed is slightly faster)

Who was your previous provider if you don't mind me asking?
Do you think they were responsible for the LowID?

It was TDS Telecomm. They were absolutely responsible for the LowID. I now use the same router and modem on the same computer, just now I use a different provider and instant HighID. No UPnP, no forwarding ports, just hooked up and I was golden.

If you remember, me and Soporific tried everything under the sun to fix it, even remotely letting him in my computer to try it himself to no avail.

For a few days now I get low id whenever I try to connect to the eDonkey Server No2. Every other server on my list runs fine on High Id except this one. Has anyone encountered such a problem before? Is there a fix? I did nothing new really.

I'm connected to eDonkey Server No2 (212.63.206.35) with a high ID, so i don't think its a server problem.

I just came back from my buddy's place. He just got hooked up with a new Internet Package, and they supplied him with a new Modem. Since the modem has been connected, he has a Low ID. The modem is a Cisco DPC/EPC3825. Now I'm pretty sure this is a port issue, but I'm not really sure how to go about fixing this.

He is running XP Pro, and eMule is allowed to connect in his firewall settings. Plus I added the ports that eMule uses to the Firewall Rules.

I could use some help with this. I called the Cable Company, and let's just say that conversation did not go well.

So....any thoughts?
