Limewire does do some things to the TCP/IP stack... find your network connection, right-click, and "repair". This is XP's built-in recovery and stack rebuilding. It usually does the trick for minor faults like this.

We have cable internet provided by Virgin. I am accessing the internet by plugging the ethernet cable dirctly into my laptop rather than via my DI524. Have just read a post that says I have to be connected...


If you can connect to the internet using the Ethernet cable on your laptop then the cable modem is configured correctly.
If you want to connect to the Internet using the D-Link wireless router then first you need to configure the D-Link wireless settings and then configure the wireless card in your laptop with the D-Link's wireless settings. Remove the Ethernet from the laptop and connect it to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link wireless router.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

D-Link router does not connect to my laptop


remove the cat5 cable end that goes from your internet connected computer to your router; remove the end of this cable from your router ; remove your modem to router cable end from your modem put the internet computer cable into where the router cable was in the modem; unplug then: plug in your modem; wait for the modem to reboot; verify that the internet computer is online then swap the cables back where they were
you should now be able to connect your laptop wirelessly to the internet.

Slow typing response


Shutdown all non-necessary programs (Winamp, LimeWire) to reduce the "load" on your computer.

Disconnect your computer from the Internet (unplug the Ethernet cable or disable the wireless connection).

Then, launch MS Word.

Virus-scan your computer -- some computer-virus may be consuming resources.

If you're running a wireless network, make sure all computers on the network use the same network name, for instance "My network" Home Network etc. one can't say "MS HOME" and the computer you're using say "My Network"

Limewire connection


you need to find your router address from your manual (eg. 192.167.0.1). Then type this number in Internet Explorer address bar. If you did all ok at this point you should be opening browser control panel in Internet Explorer. Go to firewall page. Set Limewire software (you may need to use full path eg. C:\program files\limewire\) as an exception in ur firewall.

Open a port for a certain program


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
