If the Eagle auto-router refuse to work at all or less than 100% done, there must be too crowd area which auto-router can not pass all the wires between components.  In such cases, I would move some components to where less crowd area and try it again until the progress is done all the way to 100%.

Personally, I love auto-router of Eagle.  I have used the auto-router function since the version 5.8 or 9, quite recent versions though, and found it worked great.  I have had problems with PCBs with SMDs, but for the through-hole components based PCBs, I would strongly like to recommend to try the auto-router.

Well the issue is that it doesn't take things like priority signals into account or the requirements of ground planes in certain places etc etc.

If you're doing starting out and learning then it can be great but otherwise I'd probably stick to manual routing (or at least manually route some of the tracks first)
