If you've turned off all the design rules, then which layers have you set
the autorouter to use?? This is a design rule...

The other rules to consider, are which corners the router will create and a
clearance between the conductors (gap spacing).  These are needed by the
autorouter, else where can it put traces.

The topology is also needed, although it doesn't matter much what you set it
to.

The width constraint must also be setup.

Rules are your friend.  It helps the autorouter to determine what kind of
limitations you wish to enforce.  They don't take long to setup and last for
the entire design...
