Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Really slow downloads but fast internet connection

I have ran limewire on three different internet connections now and for some reason it is really slow with this connection. The first internet connection i had on this computer was telus ADSL and I could simultaniously download 10 songs at 20-40 Kbs easily. My second connection was telus 56k dialup and i could download 4 songs at 2-7 Kbs fairly easily. My new connection is personna cable rocket and is the fastest connection i have ran on my computer yet (for everything except for dnlding) and for some reason it downloads slower than my dialup connection did. I have already set up my firewall to allow limewire to bypass it and applied the TCPIP.sys patch. I even bought limewire pro to see if it downloads faster. Also I have a friend who has cable rocket too and their limewire downloads really fast, the only difference is that I am running an RCA cable modem and they are running a linksys. So I was just wondering a new modem would fix this problem or if there is something else I should try.

Try the .limewire fix. I do not think it is the RCA cable modem I am using on (RCA Digital Cable Modem) and am having no problem. If the .limewire fix doesn't work you can try resetting the modem by unplugging the modem for 30 sec then plug it back in. On the back of the modem there should be a reset button, push it in for 15 sec after you plug it back in. It will reset it to the default settings if something got messed up somehow. The Link below has the .limewire fix in it.

Default I tried it but it didnt work

I have just finished trying both of your suggestions and they didn't work at all. I am still downloading at 1 Kb/s (when I'm lucky) so I think I either need to go back to ADSL or get a new modem.

Do you see a wall in front of the globe in Limewire ?

Also how does Limewire connect ? (Tools>Options>Advanced>Firewall Config)

Have you tried portforwarding a port ?

Looks like it is set up right, and as you said no firewall issue. I would normally say that your ISP has probably started using trafficshaping but you allready mentioned that your friend has the same service.

There are two possibilities that still come to mind regarding your ISP

1. You have a quota on amount of data you get to download/upload during each month and you have exceted that amount this month. This can either be checked by calling up your ISP and asking or you can wait until the start of next month to see if you can download again.

2. They started using portblocking. This can be checked by changing your port (try one between 50.000 and 60.000)
