Default absolutely no luck with connecting limewire

hey guys, just posting this msg as I'm at the end of my tether, I've tried absolutely everything to get limewire connected and absolutely nothing is working. I have used limewire in the past and it's been fine but I've recently moved to a new ISP called "Be", I started using limewire with this new ISP on friday and it was working fine for about an hour then there was only one green bar at the bottom, since then I have not been able to get a connection with limewire whatsoever apart from one bar which is useless.
There have been some occassional times where it has gone up to three bars but this is still useless as I cant get any search results or download anything. I've basically tried everything from port forwarding to checking if my router is UPnP enabled to changing the port on the advanced section of LW section and absolutely nothing is working. Anyway heres all my settings, really hope someone can help me out, thanks
