Office Connect ADSL Wireless Router,
Windows XP SP2 - firewalled
I have opened edonkey UDP and TCP ports on the router and have allowed the same ports via the XP firewall.
Edonkey runs ok, uploads are constant at about 20-30.  Downloads are extremely slow generally under 10, sometimes up to 20.
Always says I have lowid please check network settings and status is Unreachable

Any ideas on what this means and how to increase speed?

setup your ip as DMZ host on the router, make sure firewall on router is letting the port through as well as windows XP firewall. it should work.

Edonkey speed really depends on many users and what speeds they have.  But when downloading from more sources (without LowID) then it might increase.

Go to start/run then type in command.
once in there type ipconfig. that will tell you the last digits in your ip ex) xxx.xxx.x.102 <---THIS
remember this number. Then open up Internet Explorer and type this ip in the address bar:
it will bring up a menu asking you for a Username and password. If you do not know this then type admin for the password in lower case so.
once in there hit advance on the top right. Then click on DMZ Host in the top middle. A screen with an IP will come up that looks like this
192.168.1.___ where the underline is (blank box) type in the last number of your ip address you got before. After this go to Forwarding on the top menu again. once in there click on Port Triggering on the bottom. then copy this exactly

Application name: eMule
Trigger Port Range: 4660~4712
Incoming Port Range:4660~4712
(yes the same number twice)
click apply and you should be good to go!

The site above is info on how you can forward ports with routers other then Linksys. It pretty much has all of the main routers and step by step instructions.
