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)
Usually that is due to a virus or P2P software. You can turn it off if you want.
Logging into your 2wire by typing 192.168.1.254 in the address bar of your browser. Click on the firewall tab then advanced settings You will see attach detection on the right hand side Uncheck the box for "excessive sessions" box Then hit save.
If your music still plays and the iPod is recognized by iTunes when you plig it in, make sure you have all of your music backed up on you computer's hard drive.
You should plug the iPod into your computer and use iTunes to restore the factory settings. If you download music off of P2P software like Limewire, You may have had a virus that slipped past your virus scan software. There could also have been an issue with one of the automatic updates.
If this doesn't work, you should try the apple.com troubleshooting site. It's generally very good.
