Computer configuration:
eMule Plus version: emule+
Using proxy: No
Firewall: Yes
CPU: Intel 7350
Memory: RAM 4 GB
Operating System: Vista
Updated drivers
for network and video:
Yes

I have been trying to connect to any server via emule+. I am using a Westell 2200 modem and a Netgear WNR2000 router.

I have configured my modem to accept the services of emule with the TCP and UDP ports indicated by the program. I have done the same for the router. I have tried using port forwarding methods and port triggering methods.

The program indicates it does see an internet connection but all servers report back dead or time out.

Any suggestions?

What version are you using?
Maybe those servers are actually dead...

I have actually let it cycle through all available servers. That takes about 7 minutes. I don't think all of those servers could be dead at the same time.

I am using emule plus 1.2b.

v1.2b was released in February 2007... Click SourceForge link above and get the latest version (v1.2e), then visit peerates.net and update servers.

I have updated and tried all methods previously mentioned. I believe I may have a problem with my OS. I have disabled the Windows firewall and AVG's Online Shield. I am not sure what else I should be doing, but it is obvious I haven't done the right thing yet!!

Some particular ISPs completely block p2p traffic:

The fact that application can see Internet connection means that it can connect outside through standard port 80 which is used for HTTP.
Actual application ports are probably blocked somewhere that's why it cannot connect.
From what you were saying regarding modem and router configuration it sounds as unusual overcomplicated setup. Normally when you have a router and modem, you set modem to be in bridge mode. This way router sets up PPPoE connection for you while modem just passes everything to the router. In this setup you configure NAT on router to pass ports to a particular LAN address (in this case it's easy when PC has static IP address).

In your case it looks like you have hardware firewall configured on both modem and router, and modem probably sets up PPPoE connection.
