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.

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.

Angry Any Form of Gnutella Client kills internet connection

I recently switched from sbc/at&t DSL to comcast cable internet. When I did, I lost use of the limewire I had been using for many years with no problems. I am now on Comcast with a Linksys WCG200 Modem/Router/WAP. I say all Gnutella Clints because I initialy suspected Limewire. So I tried Frostwire, then Bearshare, all to the same result. When ever I connect to any Gnutella client, after a few minutes, five max, My internet connection times out on a ping screen. If I immedietly close the application I am running, sometimes my modem can recover. If I don't close it fast enough, I have to do a manual, power switch reboot of the modem. When I do run the client I can search and Download or upload, but then bang, it's gone, no internet. PLEASE HELP, I MISS YOU!!

Does the new modem plug into your USB or Ethernet port? (people report problems with USB modems )

Actually, it would be interesting to ask for an explanation from BOTH comcast and sbc, and copare their answers

When you switched, did the new company install any equipment? I'm assuming that your wireless connection is just within the house, and somewhere the base station (router?) connects to a wire.

That's what I meant by "modem" When you say your modem is disconnected, I assume you mean the modem that is built into your machine to connect to dial-up service through the telephone wire. I was thinking about the cablemodem or DSL modem.

I should have clarified: sorry

As a side-note, you might want to check for firmware updates for your Linksys WCG200. I'm aware of at least one Linksys model that struggles as described HERE (click link). But I haven't heard of this issue for other linksys models.

When you say wireless, is the receiver a card within your computer? Is there any usb or ethernet cabling between any of the devices?

This is not true. Read the terms of service before you claim
anything:

http://www.comcast.net/terms/use.jsp

"Prohibited Uses and Activities Prohibited uses include, but
are not limited to, using the Service, Customer Equipment,
or the Comcast Equipment to:
[...]
14. run programs, equipment, or servers from the
Premises that provide network content or any other services
to anyone outside of your Premises LAN (Local Area Network),
also commonly referred to as public services or servers.
Examples of prohibited services and servers include, but are
not limited to, e-mail, Web hosting, file sharing, and proxy
services and servers;"

The fact is they do allow it, but put that in there in case they need an excuse
to rein in their heaviest users. Other ISPs do that too.

No, a normal ISP does not prohibit running servers at all
because strictly speaking you're not an ISP if you do that
rather some kind of "online" service that partially overlaps
with the internet. You certainly won't be subject to such
terms when using a proper ISP.

They can hardly get more explicit than that. Don't think
they "allow" it because they use no technical measures to
prevent it. As with law and order, most things which are
illegal are not and cannot be efficiently be prevented.

However, regarding the original problem I would guess that
the user's router is too crappy for P2P. Some of them cannot
handle more than dozen connections at any time. Or the
user should just decrease the bandwith limits.

Furthermore, just because some people can use P2P applications
at comcast that doesn't imply everybody can. It's well-known
that certain ISPs ban P2P only in certain areas, at certain
times etc. That's either because they cannot technically
handle complete blockings e.g., it might require special
routers - there's is hardware available for messing with
P2P in several ways. Another reason might be that they do
this on purpose to prevent that anyone can easily prove it
and instead blame it on the users' software or hardware.

Actually, if you look around, virtually all ISPs have a similar clause in their
terms even though they allow users to do as they please.

Like I said, such a clause is a tool they all keep handy but not all of them use it,
instead only invoking it when they get into a dispute with a user over bandwidth.

Aside from that, the original post from two months ago likely arose from a
weak router, as I have always been able to freeze a Linksys by simply using
BearShare. Since the original poster never came back I presume he followed
our advice and resolved the problem.
