Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Open a port for a certain program

Hey my name is mike. i downloaded limewire on my new laptop, but it won't connect to the internet and it says there is a firewall blocking it the connection. it is deffinetely not a firewall installed on my computer because i turned both of mine off and limewire was still blocked. i was just wondering if you have a solution as to how i can stop the firewall and if the router is involved with the problem or not. if it is, should i be opening a port for limewire, and how the heck would i do that? thanks.

Hi mike,

this router has its own firewall, although i don't think its a good idea to turn off the firewall

google the port that limewire uses and then use portforwarding on the router.

you can start by turning off the firewall on the router to see if it works. if it does then perrhaps just allow limewire to passthrough your firewall at the router.

good luck

Firewall and limewire


Dear ckclee,
Just uninstall your new limewire and restart your computer. try to re-install the old version of your "work-fine-Limewire". If it doesn't work, the only way is go to start menu, browse the accessories, carefully choose "SYSTEM RESTORE". when it runnng.. pick the date which your computer work best, the restart it, remember... windows can only restore and set back time status not more than a week, according to my experience.
Good Luck

Limewire wont connect


What firewalls you have, Look for yours here for instructions on how to configure it to allow both LW & Java full access: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/firewalls.shtml

Update your Java: http://www.limewire.com/english/cont...radejava.shtml

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.

Ares 2.0.9


ares is just like limewire. if your ares cant connect, you can always try limewire instead.

just do some tweaking with your firewall. that may be the cause why ares cant connect. it means that the port ares is using is blocked.
