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. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. 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.

Question no firewall but firewall detected? and slow?

I have the current version of LW, and until today was on dialup internet access. I now have DSL and it's working fine on all respects.

However, started LW and it shows firewall, when there is no firewall at all. I even disabled all popup, spyware, adware software. Still shows firewall.

In addition, I tried to download and is seems no faster than when I was on dialup. In fact, one sample took longer than it would have for the same type/size file before I went to dsl.

Windows XP, 384meg memory, only ONE download attempted at a time, DSL (the "slow" 768 version) but verifying average of 705.

Stopping, starting, restarting, rebooting, none have even once removed the "detected firewall" icon.

Any suggestions would be great. I am a bit disappointed in this....I was almost ready to purchase 'pro' but now I wonder if there is any point. I noticed someone else was actually SLOWER with pro? wow.

Can you give us a total description of your set up:
1. OS version? (Eg: Windows 98)
2. What firewalls you have?
3. How much ram?
4. Hard Disk space available?
5. Connection type? (Eg: dialup, broadband, cable, etc.)
6. Modem & router brand name & model numbers?
7. Where are you trying to connect from (home, school, work, etc.)?
8. What version of Limewire (LW) & Java do you have? (Go to LW's menu Help>About LW...) Will show both LW & Java version.
9. Who is your ISP provider? ( AOL/MSN/Comcast/Tiscal)
10. Are you sharing the connection with other computers or p2p sharing programs? If yes, please give details of set up.
11. Do this simple test for us. Using your browser go here: http://www3.limewire.com:6346/ The page should say 'Your test worked!'. What happens when you go there?
These details are vital if you want us to find out what your connection problem is.

* Did you configure your firewall so it allows LW full access (advisable not to have 2 active firewalls b/c they can interfere with each other. http://www.limewire.com/english/content/firewalls.shtml

12. Do This test, Is the result True/False?
http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...757#post103757 Is the result True/False

13. Do a speed test post the results here.

o k ....? I guess I don't follow....even if it DOES have a firewall, if the default it OFF, then why would that affect this?

No other inbound or outbound programs I have tried have any issues whatsoever. That is why it is hard for me to understand why LW is acting "different"

Would it be of any benefit to uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy of lw, in other words, would "fresh" defaults upon setup make any difference?

I logged into the wesfall maint. thing, and restored, (after I looked at all options---I see nothing in there that says anything about an active firewall....?)

I had THOUGHT this would be one of the benefits of having dsl in the first place, but I wonder? at least I'm not alone...seems like people across the gamut are having issues too.

Willing to try anything else if ideas surface!

There are 2 possibilities here ether your firewall is only allowing limited connections or your ISP is shaping filtering your connection. LimeWire has no problems if you have a good connection with nothing blocking it. I have no problem DL at 700KBs+ along with many others who use LimeWire. My suggestion is call your ISP and ask what their policy is on P2P apps try a couple of different P2P programs and see if you can get better results with them. If your results are the same with them then you know it is your ISP or your router. And if your router/modem is not configured properly it can have a big effect on your ability to download.

You might find the link below it is about ISP that are know to block otr filter P2P apps and Verizon is mentioned in there but I did not see where it was confirmed.

ISP's known to BLOCK or Filter p2p or specifically Limewire

I had already read that document, but finally got my "courage" up and went into the configuration etc. This modem is factory set at None: ALL TRAFFIC ALLOWED.

I'm going to continue to look around but I just don't see how the modem is the problem. And if it were, I would think it would be affecting my other programs like video chat etc.

Something new every day, eh? :-)
