Does anyone have info in regards to emule connections, recently I have been plagued with sudden disconects from my server. I get a warning internet connection failure, this only seems to happen when I start emule and no other program. Any ideas whats causing it? I end up having to reset both my router and modem.

Try lowering the number of connections allowed in eMule's settings. Also, I would check the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) setting in your router/modem - I've found some router/modems can frequently disconnect and/or crash if the MTU is too high or if there are too many simultaneous connections.

Yeah, could just be the modem and/or router can't handle Kad's traffic (or it can't handle it anymore). What about torrents? They put even more stress on it.

I have noticed with more than a few UK IPS's that if you don't use a VPN it is low ID all the way. Scary. :tinfoilhat:

I have high ID and am connected to the server okay but the company formerly known as AOL-UK is now actively blocking all eMule transfers during certain hours. :pissedoff:

And enabling obfuscation makes no difference? Damn, that sucks.

No and it also severely reduces the number of search results returned. For testing I'm using files would normally max out my connection if everything was clear. Some time just after 1.10am the transfers will resume as if nothing had happened. The eMule wiki database claims that Carphone Warehouse does not throttle eMule which is clearly wrong as AOL-UK is now hosted on the same servers as Talk Talk (Opal Telecom).
