internet connection terminates after limewire start

everytime when i start limewire, my connection to the internet terminates.
I still have a connection to my router ( and the router says that the connection to my ISP is still established, but either limewire, nor any internet pages, nor ICQ or Mail does work. Everything is terminated.

What can i do?

Reduce the drag that's being caused by LW.

1. Tip: Purge the Downloads Queue!

2. * Go to LW's menu bar, Tools>Options>Speed & tick disable Ultrapeer Cap. & press apply button.
* Set both uplds & downlds to autoclear.
* Close all LW windows you don't need open at that time.
* Reduce uplds to about 70-80% or more. Reduce downlds to 80 or 90%.
* You might also consider reducing shared files if you have multiple thousands of them.

3. After opening LW wait 5 to 15 mins or longer before using. Let it settle down 1st.

4. Don't use the Resume button on all incomplete files. This can have side-fx such as affect LW's connection quality. May queue your files for much much longer. This will also stress LW & your comp. If you use Resume/Find sources then just apply it to a couple or so at one time.

5. Make sure your Java is up to date. Perhaps even consider removing all present versions, rebooting, then installing the beta 1.6 using the "Offline" installer. Make sure it's the JRE version;
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0
The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications.
(BTW LW won't use 1.6 if there's any other java versions on your system.)

that does not help.

there isnt any connection of LW.

I start LW, 10 seconds later the internet connection has termined.
Only router reset helps to solve problem.
But LW does not connect to the network.

So what router is it that it can't handle a p2p program? Does it have a brand name & model number?
Did you purge your incompletes, & make all other settings adjustments?

its a a Siemens SE 551 Wlan dsl/cable router.
never had any problems with it.
emule is working, apple juice is working (on other computers with the router)

i dont have any incompletes.
The adjustments was already set here....

It must be LW then. Perhaps stick to emule. Sometimes LW just doesn't work well on some people's systems. I don't know what else to advise. Phex is a good program that uses Gnutella, see if you have same problems with it.
