Router dropping Packets

  1. The problem I get when I run emule.

    Even after ending the program it still does not want to play. The odd time that I manage to get into the router and access the System Log I keep getting the following

    Table full, dropping packet

    I have updated the firmware, tried the solutions of killing the connecitons after 5mins but still just delays the enevitable death of the Router.

    Have to restart it every time once it does this, which is not a good thing.

    I have tried dropping the number of connections but apart from slowing down emule, eventually the router fills up.

    Any real solutions to this problem?

    Is the router set to bridging mode?

    Simply No, the router is not set to briging mode.

    do you have ANY filtering defined? if so delete them.
    Try to find a setting for DO NOT FRAGMENT and enable it. If you can access
    the modem, do likewise. Fragment reassembly requires buffering inputs and this
    can lead to your symptom.

    have you seen this?

    quote from UG: Concurrent Downloads
    This setting will affect the max allowed number of Sources per file and not the number of files you can download. If you have many files in the transfer list, the lower the max number of sources per file should be. Choose how many files you probably will have in your list.

    Do not add too many files to your Downloads list. The Found Sources value in the Statistic tab should not be higher than ~3000. Too many sources will only clog your connection with permanent source asking. When you expand a download in the Transfer tab and see many (Too many connections) in front of sources, you have too many sources for your connection type to handle. Reduce your Hard Limit value.​

    Are you talking about the settings on the router or in the Emule. Soy didnt get what you are trying to advise

    Secondly I typically use 400 hard limit with 300 connections which keeps things buzzing along quite happily

    Obviously this kills the Router in no time at all.

    I have dropped this to 200 hard limit and 30 connections and yes it runs fine but my download speed to lucky to get above 20kbs which is not outstanding.

    Does anyone on here use eMule succesfully? Please tell me what your settings are.

    Best Regards,
