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.

Exclamation Do I Set My Router to Default Gateway or My IP Address

I try not to post too many question's mainly because I know there has to be a thread that has already answered it.
Plus I don't like it when a Guy won't do his own research,so please know I have searched & read for over 3 months on Port Forwarding & configuring Limwire within WinXPproSPII Firewall & My Belkin F5D5231-4 Router.
But My question is really short & simple to ask.
When it comes time to configure the IP Address within the Router do I set the IP Address to that of the Default Gateway ?
Or to the Ip Address that the Router has Dolled out to My Particular PC ?

I have 4 PC's here @ the House & all are Hard-Wired over to the Belkin Router & to Me it seems that if I select the IP Address that the Router has given to My PC then that would send it directly to My PC, but what about the other PC's on My Home Network?
Do I have to add a Port for each and every PC that is using the Router?
Or do I just set the Virtual Server Setting(Port Forward) within the Router to the Default Gateway?

Please any help & Consideration towards this new Limewire User will be greatly appreciated !
PS; Yes I realize that Clearwire is blocking the Gutella Ports But I still seem to get a decent bandwith at times & at other times I don't get Sh!t.

Before forwarding, you would've had to set up a static IP address...that static IP is the one to use within your router config.

I don't know whether you used these instructions for your port forwarding
but if you didn't...check them out. They'll show you exactly what goes where

Thumbs up Resolution Found

I Thank You So Much
For talking to Me in a direct manner & not sending Me on a Million link Goose Chase.
I've asked for help before in other forums concerning other topics,only to be spoken to in a cynical tone
To answer your question,No I didn't follow those steps because I didn't find them,I quess My search wasn't quite good enough huh? LOL,but I have been able to set up My Port forwarding & Static IP Address without too much stress Thanx to You! & I am currently downloading an AVI file that I have been unable to find a host for for over 2 or 3 months & it's comming in
@ 20KB/s with just 1 host
I quess I can't ask for too much more than that Huh? when I know for a fact that My ISP (Clearwire) blocks Limwire/Gnutella.
So now it's just a matter of Me trying different ports untill I find one that works better than the one I'm currently using since I read that IPS's rarely block certian(High Numbered Ports)who knows maybe I'll find one that will get Me back up to the speed I used to get with My last ISP.
Ok Im Outty & Once again thanx!! (Much Props)

Default Thanx Birdy

Thanx Birdy I am pretty confident that I'm probably getting all the bandwith that I can get out of limewire rite now,mainly due to the fact that My ISP is known to Block Any & all known P2P traffic & Limewire is definetly on their list of traffic to block,I've read all about it in some Irish forum.

Anyway I've attached a jpg file so you can see My current speed
Thanx & Im Outty

If I were you I'd be pretty happy with that speed, considering (as you said) that Clearwire aren't a p2p-friendly ISP

Thanx for the help & Kind words Birdy that goes out to others as well here who have helped/directed Me in My attempt to squeeze out as much as I can via the "Clearwire/Limewire" setup that I am stuck with for a while anyhow.
My attached jpg shows speeds at 58KBps but at times I've reached 85KBps & even higher just didn't have a camera then, but anyhow I guess thats it for this thread so once again I thank you Birdy
