why wont my emule connect
Is it giving you an error or just simply not connecting?
Have you checked over your settings?
Have you checked it's not firewalled?
Edit: Why does eMule not connect ?
It may take a while until eMule is connected as servers may be down or not responding. If eMule will not connect at all make sure that you have a recent server list and check if any software like firewalls, routers, dial in software is blocking eMule's traffic. You can easily check this using the Port Tester functionality found in Options -> Connection -> Clientport -> Test Ports.
You may also check Options -> Server -> Autoconnect to static servers only. If it is checked and you do not provide a staticservers.dat with valid servers eMule will not connect
Ok so I would try first trying to connect with your firewall OFF, just to be sure.
If still nothing then restart your router if you are using one.
If still nothing then you need to check over all your tcp settings and maybe forward/reforward ports through your router.
I'm guessing you have tried restarting windows?
If all that fails I'd try a reinstall of Emule and start from fresh.
try clearing your cache and updating your bios, failing that you've obviously got that millennium bug wots going round
