Re: Firewall ?? I cant get Limewire back....
Find the IP address of the modem, it should be on a label on the bottom of the modem or in the owners manual that came with the modem. Then open internet explorer, in the address window, type > http:// then enter the IP address next to the // then press the enter key, you will see the home page of the modem, logon to the modem at this screen and make the change to the firewall to allow Limewire.

do you remember if you agree to allow connection to this site (when you first installed it)./ if you can get to all other sites. Find your firewall and allow Limewire......if you cant find the allowance on your firewall uninstall Limewire and re-install this time allowing its connection
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.
are you an admin on the computer? only admin are allow to download and allow other to download...your modem is just fine.....if you are allow to download software or/and delete software. we are going to start over........uninstall any limewire if any on the computer....ok ....now go to limewire (or Frostwire) to download the newest version........a series of gray boxes will pop up once you have download and gone thru the set up routine....on one these questions (your firewall will ask if you wish for limewire to operate on this computer) you must say and click YES).......happy downloading (remember to share files........thats what p2p is about)
