you know what? I'm going to try that to! I'm going to cancel all my downloads and just run emule everytime i'm online, cause i can't just leave the computer on the entire night or something, since my little sister sleeps in this room...
I'll wait and see if my speeds go up! Ehm just one question though... How long am i supposed to keep it running without dowloading??? :huh:

btw i do admire everyone that answers all those questions!! Thanks guys!

Well I'm sorry that you have to answer this QUESTION so many time that you're fingers hurt. If you we're to post this answer first to be seen when us newbies show up on the forum in big BLOCK letters. Then maybe it won't be the first QUESTION we ask, since it's the first thing we notice. AND THE FIRST THING WE WANT AN ANSWER TO.

Why can't ya'll just simply creat, Why You're Downloads are so Slow, at the beginning of the forum? You already know that, that is the first Question you will get hit with. Make life easier on yourselve's. I guess that ya'll just a gluttin for punishment. Isn't it a shame that life is a bitch? Guess ya'll need to take some anger management classes or learn how to organize the forum to answer the basic questions. You can have all the help files you want and people are going to ask the forum first. Because you simply didn't put the answer in thier face.

Ok, we're waiting for your concrete proposals.

You're very well experienced in behaviour of newbies entering a forum?

What I found when tring to download was the server.met wasn't giving me enough download options. So I would open the list and copy the contents to address.dat. Another thing to try is to reset you download and upload speeds. Say you're true download is 128kbps double or triple it. Then drag the control slides to the left and drag only the download slide back to the right. Upload will auto set itself. Doubling most of the time works. Tripling some times makes it slower. My download is 20KBs I set it at 96KBs and it works well most of the time. Upload is set at 10KBs
I'll get 18KBs downloads. You just have to experiment with it.

What it boils down to is that theres no clear cut answers. Just trial and error at your settings. There where other things that I did that helped. But I still at times get slow downloads.

And reading help is only going to confuse you. Since it was written by programers to understand in thier own language. Not in real people language. You could be reading from here to the day you die and still not understand what you read.

Well I do need to say that they tried to make it understandable. They did put some if ands or buts into the help files. But not enough. Should of added a few duhs also.

Found a bunch of server.met files and opened them with wordpad. copied the the files contents and in option servers clicked list and pasted. my download options increased consideralbly. When I search for a file now instead of 20 download options I have over a thousand. In Kad Global And severs. Maybe its not suppose to work. But it do.

When I at first updated the sever list it would replace the file with a new file and my options would decrease. by doing it the other way it increased my options in search. And my server.met wasn't replaced. Just added to. Even downloaded eDonkey and copied thier sever.met and added it to emule. Then uninstalled it. That one bousted my search options alone 25%.

Don't ask me why it works son. I'm not a programer. Just a user looking for more downloads and speed.

Don't need to ask you this question. Pasting the content of server.met files into the addresses.dat is simply nonsense ... sorry, but that's it.

Maybe so! All I know is it helped me. Go figure you're the moderator. It just gave me more download options and instead of downling from clients of 1. I can download from clients of many who have the same file I'm looking for.
You say it's stupid. So did my son. Until he saw the download options in search increase. And he's a programer. So while you're calling me stupid I'll just keep adding to my seach list as I am now doing. Works for me. And haven't had any bad downloads.

Obliterator isn't a moderator I am but he knows more about eMule than I ever will and is making perfect sense. Why put the content of a compiled file into adresses.dat which is meant to contain text strings and to my knowledge is only read when you have the auto update serverlist at startup option enabled?

Like, I wonder why...
Why do my download speed is kinda shitty? Haha, you're probably getting sick of messages like this, forgive me once, I just want a clever person to expalain things for me :angelnot:
I read the whole eMule integrated help, I found some info, but still I don't understand WHY!
Here's the situation: there are 2 eMule users, me and my friend.
I use my Mule only in university, with a supreme 2.5 Gbit x 4 network.
He uses his crap DSL 2400/256
My upload is allways from 2.5 megs and above, usually 5 Megabytes (don't misunderstand me, not Megabits, but megabytes).
This asshole never put his upload higher than 10 kbytes, he says - there is no need to it, since you can put your download to unlimited as soon as you put you uploadlimit to 10 kbytes.
My rank never dropped below 1000.
His rank will NEVER get higher than 100.

And...
My Average Downloadrate: 66.92 KB/s Max Downloadrate Average: 76.43 KB/s
His Average Downloadrate: 184.31 KB/s Max Downloadrate Average: 200.49 KB/s
:hammer2: :furious: :o
Indeed, my download start pretty quickly, and it goes up to 90-100 in one minute or so, but it gets stuck there. His Mule just captures a user after user, slowly but surely getting to his bandwidth limit.
There were moments, when I got 50 sources on one single file, but then everyone just gave me a kbyte or smth. What's interesting, when 40 of those stop uploading to me, the remaining 10 increased their speed, so that I had the same 60 kbytes/sec :)
OK, it starts to be like reading a book, you read and read and probably get f*** tired :)
Since my university has some smart admins, they will kick my ass seconds after I put my ports to 4664 (TCP) and 4742 (or whatever on UDP), so I put my ports to 80 and 8080 :) Smart, huh? So the only person who knows about my huge upload is me. But the FAQ advises me not to put values of eMule ports to those of standart, like HTTP, FPT, HTTP proxy and so on. I have without any doubts violated this advise, but I have no choise :cry:
Can I do smth to get a bittttt bigger download, I feel I kinda deserve that; uploaded more than 2 terrabytes in 3 months... Downloaded 20.32 Gbytes...

@ 4ypo4ka

-Like, I wonder why...


When you give a lot of UL, this is great.

I think you would bether taking other ports. 80 is for http. And 8080 is also needed by other things, i think.

Try other Ports.

But in Moment i have no idea.

You have to find people, ^who have also very fast InternetConnections. And then you take a bit from your speed, and make FriendUpload.

But never forget. This what you do, with this very large UL is very good for the ED2kNet.

But never forget. Never give max. Speed for Uploads. Because a bit of Speed is needed for Queuesource.

But i think you remember that.

You have to look, that you have enough differnet DL's.

When from a file are 10'000 People Up- and downloading, you will get more, then from files like Sitcom like StarTrek or like that. Because all from the peoples who load that, will load all episodes.


You have to look, that you have enough different dl's.
What you can doo, you let run "Multiemule". Of corse, never with the same files in different emul.

I didn't make this my own. But i heard, that it will func. good.

Perhaps, you will get more dl, with give the same like in past.

You make it good. It should give more people, who give very much UL.

Greets ...

Ps. My english is really bad. So excuse that please

Thnx for reply. But the thing is that I would never start this topic, if a friend of mine, who's bandwidth, PC and rank is much shittier still downloading at least double as fast as me... That brings me to conclusion, that rank and bandwidth play kinda secondary role in downloading... And that there is a limit to how fast you can download. But not how fast you can upload :)
Finding another person would be great, but strangly nearly all guys with nice net download only porn, my interests are actually more extended than that :)

I just wanna ask all the guys who read this: plz, if you're downloading fast, set your upload limit to at least 80%. There is one of the clever guys here, who wrote, that total upload = total download. So maybe if you give more, you'll get back more. Files won't just come from somewhere, they are, as a matter of fact, downloaded from you and me.
Sometimes I wonder, if there is a limit to human greed; right now I'm downloading a Prodigy album from 12 people, but I give double as great upload to every single person...

Please help! Does anyone know, how to boost up downloads through the system ports (in my case 80 and 8080)?
I also wonder, if the max connections & sources per file are correctly chosen by wizard? :confused:

I agree.

Much advice on 'slow downloads' seems to do with max connection etc. settings.

Looking at Read This Before Starting A New Thread!, How To Get Support For Emule! you can link to:
emule-project.net/FAQ /Settings and Speed where you'll find:

(eg for windows XP)
Max connections: 400
Max new connections / 5 sec: 30

Search in these threads tho and you can read eg:
max connections 500 should be fine
max sources any thing more then 2000
or
decrease the max. number of connections to 128, and 5 in 5 secs

I've tried some of these.

I have:

v0.44d
Windows xp
750kbs/128kbs (90KB/16KB) cable modem no router
ports (currently) 80
TCP/UDP tests successful
High ID
UL throttled (usually) 80k
ZoneAlarm (no blocked emule packets)


most downloads are fine, never fast but fine. Occas. get a file before I've upped the file amount :o . I like to hang around to upload more because I'm so nice (erm, I mean because I imagine this'll help :angelnot: ). Occasionally though I get this kind of problem :

Download added: 27 days ago
File Size: 700 MB
Transferred Data: 3.71 GB
Progress 88%

One reason for this is deep queues for this particular file but there are also a number of sources. Problem seems to be long periods not moving in anybody's queue and also disconnecting when a download starts. Sometimes an error message with this, sometimes not.

---- 83.31.138.41 'xxxxx' (eMule v0.43b,Downloading/Uploading): Removing client from upload list. Reason: Remote client canceled transfer.
Download session ended. User: xxxxx Reason: Error 10053: An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine.
Client TCP socket error: Wrong header; IP=127.0.0.1

(in this case all at the same time with the same lowID client who was uploading and downloading)

I know I've thrown a lot of stuff in here but I'm frustrated (!).
There doesn't seem to be a reason why this file is such a problem as many other files d/l ok.
But I've been searching in various threads and found various different things. In the end I thought I'd just follow the other link on Read This Before Starting A New Thread... and come here ;)
