I had my ISP recently install the amazingly fast Lucent-Alcatel Cell Pipe 7130 VDSL2 modem with a download speed of 25Mbit/s and an upload speed averaging between 4 and 6 Mbit/s.
Now, with uTorrent, the up and down file speeds are simply astounding when compared to those of my previous Gateway 2-Wire modem.
Unfortunately, since my modem upgrade I now receive at the bottom of my eMule screen the persistent warning: "You have a lowid. Please review your network config and/or your settings."
Granted that I have been using eMule Plus less often due to uTorrent's improvement, but do I assume correctly that I should change some of the settings in eMule Plus in order to take advantage of my modem upgrade?
If so, can someone kindly suggest what Preference screens and boxes to check and uncheck so that I can once again retrieve a high ID and faster up and down speeds, or does the modem change have nothing to do with my low ID in any event?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
By the way, when will the next version 1.2f be available?

When you first set up eMule Plus on your computer, you must have done port forwarding in the modem you had then. With the new modem, you need to do those settings again, i.e. you need to log into the configuration page of your modem and forward the ports that eMule Plus is using to the IP address of the computer eMule Plus is running on.http://www.portforward.com
has free instructions for a vast number of modems and applications.
Very good resource.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, even before visiting this forum the first thing I did was to check that portforward.com page, but since my modem is not listed there (or seemingly anywhere yet!) and because uTorrent evidently never needed to be port-forwarded at all since it never stopped working and has been running normally without a hitch, I didn't think it would be necessary to port-forward it for eMule Plus either. Why is that, I wonder?
Until my modem model appears on a list somewhere, I will have to wait. The notion of paying $20 to be automatically port-forwarded doesn't appeal to me right now--especially since I did it myself with my previous Gateway 2-Wire modem.
I will wait and see.

It has been my experience that UIs from a particular manufacturer don't change all that much across models. If you can get into the configuration of your modem, you should be able to figure out what settings to make, especially if you have looked at the method used for other models from that manufacturer.
Try browsing http://192.168.1.1
username admin, password admin. Works most of the time. Then see if these instructions make sense.http://portforward.com/english/routers/por.../eMule_Plus.htm
If what you're seeing looks totally different, back off - don't do anything - and look for instructions for another model and try again. Walk through the settings a few times first until you're comfortable that the instructions match the screens you are seeing.

I've registered my modem/router with Portforward.com so that it will presumably be added to their list.
Their existing Lucent model has a different screen setup than what is evidently needed for my model, so I won't attempt to tinker with it. I don't want to spend hours checking other possibilities on my own with the risk of making an error which might then require a painful and complicated recovery process.
Too bad there isn't a "generic" "default" procedure to follow, but that would be asking too much, I suppose.

I managed to portward my new Cellpipe 7130 router/modem so that now my UserID has been restored back to "high".
What if any adjustments or tweaks must I now perform in the eMulePlus Preferences tools to ensure that my upload and download speed deployments are optimized?
Currently, my average download and upload speeds average 25 Mbit/s and 5.48 Mbit/s respectively. Truly awesome to behold I have to say!

About the settings, the best way I have found is to select the nearest connection profile from the drop down list, click ;apply; and then select the custom profile and manually tweak the settings.
Since this is a connection that many of us can only dream about, you'll have to find out the best settings for yourself. From the speeds you are getting, you seem to be doing pretty well.
Note that it will take many sources to put a dent in that connection, so adjust the number of files and total number of sources accordingly.
I'm currently stuck in a place that gives me lowID, and I can understand the pain you must have gone through.

It seems that my region has been chosen as one of the first to utilize these stunning speeds, and since I am only about a mile from my phone company's central office, presumably it goes even that much faster!
Apparently they are currently testing 50 Mbit/s download speed and further trials will determine how stable that will be before it is made available to subscribers. Astonishing, to be sure!
Anyway, I reset the Preferences/Connections/Profile to "T1" to see what happens. The "Transfer rates" automatically reset themselves to:
Download Capacities 180 Limits 0 KB/s
Upload Capacities 180 Limits 180 KB/s
Limitless download = 10 (box checked)
Queue size is 3000 Max connections 2048 in 5 sec shows 20
Thus far, I haven't seen anything significant occuring as far as files racing along, etc. Perhaps I am expecting too much, eh? Time will tell.
Maybe eMule will have to update its Preference box to accommodate this new era of lightning-fast fibre-optic connectivity? ;-)

T1 is 1.5Mbps symmetric. You have way above that.
Download you can always use 0 as limit and 3200 KB/s as capacities
Upload you can try with 640 KB/s
Queue size is more about your computer speed so I would keep it at that or 5000 as much.
Even if we accommodate a better preferences box the best way is to test instead of guessing by you ISP provided parameters. In my country they never meet the limits, meaning having 32KB/s upload I only get 24 at max. And that's almost consistent with all ISPs but business ones.
