Re: limewire wont connect
If you have recently got a new router, there
would be a firewall on the router blocking the required ports for
LimeWire to operate. To get around this, refer to your Router's user
manual and find out how to access it and then unblock those certain
ports. PLEASE NOTE: Do not attempt to unblock all the ports as this
will increase the risk of getting your router and perhaps your
computers infected with viruses.
If that is not your problem,
you may be using and ISP (Internet Service Provider) that has blocked
those ports as downloading music uses a lot of bandwidth which is a
burden on them. If you have Satellite Internet, this is probably the
case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and
negotiating a price for them to unblock the port for you.
Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.
Delete the LW Preferences folder called .limewire
(whilst LW is closed!) & found here: Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP:
C:/Documents And Settings/your_username/.limewire OR for Windows 98 /
ME: "C:\My Documents"
But keep keep in mind once you delete your LW Preferences folder you
will need to reset all your LW option settings so you might want to
make a note of them 1st.

This sounds like you are asking two different questions. PXE booting would be the way you would begin installing or loading an operating system. "Media test failure" errors would indicate a lack of network connectivity on the network interface that you're trying to PXE boot from.
You go on to mention an OS partition not showing... So did you resolve the PXE media test failure issue?
Your question is unclear and unanswerable in it's current state. BE CLEAR, CONCISE AND SPECIFIC.
Hello, There are a number of things that can cause this, namely your internet speed. Make sure you have high speed internet with at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload for best results. Game play can also be affected by wireless. If you are connected to your router via wireless, try using a network cable instead. If your wireless signal quality varies a lot it can cause disruptions in your connection. If you have any P2P programs running such as emule, limewire, torrents, etc... Shut them down as they tend to sap your upload speed which in turn, affects your game. If your computer is not that fast and doesn't play the game without online mode very well, it could be worse online being you are now rendering more elements into the game. Lastly, EA Servers may be over loaded at peak hours which could also affect your game play. Check your internet speed here http://www.speedtest.net and also your link quality here: http://www.pingtest.net Make sure your ping is at least below 80ms and your link quality is A or C. Any less and you may have trouble playing some online games. And again, for the speed, it's good to have at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload. My connection is 50mbps download and 3mbps upload with ping grade A and ping 3ms, so I have never had any problems myself with online games and real-time streaming J Hope this helps! Chris
Sometimes, facebook do maintenance for their servers and you'll experience that thing. But usually it doesn't take more than one day.
Is it a home pc where you're trying to logon into? Or is it an office computer? If it is an office computer, your network admin might blocked the website.
You can also try clearing your cache. For firefox, click tools, clear recent history and clear everything. For internet explorer, tools - internet options - delete - and delete everything. After this, try browsing facebook.
If it does not work, you can try other browser like google chrome which you can download for free at http://www.google.com/chrome
Or, you can try changing your DNS. - Click start, right-click my network places then click properties - Right click the local area connection you are using - Double click internet protocol - Change the preferred dns server to 220.127.116.11 and the alternate dns server to 18.104.22.168 - click ok, then ok - try browsing
There is many potential firewalls in the typical home that may prevent LimeWire from accessing the service. The computer with LimeWire is the first place to check. If using Windows, there is a built in firewall with access rules. If you have a Internet Security Suite such as Norton 360, then it will need to be configured to allow access. Next is the router or firewall if you use one. The manufactured of the device will have documents on their website that explain how to configure the device for port forwarding. If this is the case make sure the ports associated with LimeWire are forwarded correctly. After that may be the modem itself as many modems such as ones used for DSL are multipurpose devices and make use of a built in firewall & modem. Search your internet service provider for files related to access and configuration of your modem. If all this is setup and it still does not work, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have blocked the ports specific to LimeWire and many other peer to peer file sharing networks (P2P) such as Bit Torrent. If the traffic is blocked by the ISP there is little that can be done.
1, get a wireless card if it does not have one already,
2. get regular internet from an ISP
3. Reset the network connections and make sure all cables are connected properly,
4. Set up a home network and use a second computer that has a reliable internet connection
5. move the tower around to see if it can catch a wireless signal,
6 (and last that i can pull from my head) Is to get a wireless signal expander to lengthen the range of current wireless around your house.
Hi, Any chance your computer is running a Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7? From the Internet Options lower your security and allow to surf Protected Mode : Off. Another way is to installl Mozilla Firefox and use this browser to download Yahoo Messenger.
Other tips that might help (you may try these first):
Clear your browser's cache.
Disable any download accelerators and download the Yahoo installer again.
Update any active anti-virus and download the Yahoo installer again.
Disable any active anti-virus and download the Yahoo installer again.
Download the installer from another source. It might be corrupted on the server, or the connection to the server is unreliable. Or better yet, try it on a different day and time.
Download the installer using another computer and copy it to the original computer using a reliable medium.
