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.

BowWowWow is flying high

I have a D-Link DI-604. I've had it less than a month and I'm still trying to figure out this stuff, too. Here is what I've learned. Maybe it will help you if your D-Link 500 software is similar. I've at least downloaded music, but no one has uploaded yet.
After all this typing, I hope it helps, somewhat. I tried to get some help like this a few weeks ago from a Senior Member, but I guess they have too many emails to respond to.

In OSX, you have to do set BOTH the system firewall and the router firewall to be turned off in port 6346. System 9 doesn't have a built in firewall. A little bit of a pain, but not too bad once you've done it a couple times.

System OSX:
Go to System Preferences -> Network -> Show: Network Status. That should have the address number of your computer / three numbers, a period, three numbers, a period, one number, a period, three numbers, a period. Write that number down or keep the window open.
Then Go to System Preferences -> Sharing -> Firewall -> Scroll the blue bar down and check the box, Gnutella/Limewire (6346).
This part I'm not sure of and it doesn't seem to matter. Go to System Preferences -> Sharing -> Services -> click the Personal File Sharing box.
REMEMBER to turn these off when your done using LimeWire.

Start your browser and type in the address of the router in the search bar. You can do this stuff off-line. Click Advanced -> Firewall. Click the Enabled button. In Source -> Interface pull down the arrow and choose WAN. In Destination pull down the arrow and choose LAN. In the IP Range Start box put the address number of the router. In the IP Range End box put the address number of your computer. Protocol - TCP. Port Range 1 - 1, or whatever port your ethernet cable is plugged in. Under Schedule you can pick the time you want the port open.
THEN CLICK THE APPLY BUTTON. If you don't do that, it just erases everything you just typed in. The next time you want to open the port, click on the icon that looks like a piece of paper and a pencil and set the time you want to have the port open, like Saturday from 10:00 - 11:00 AM.
To download stuff, go to Advanced -> Virtual Server. Click the Enabled button. Type something like "LimeWire" in the Name box. Put the address number of your computer in the Private IP box. Choose Protocol Type - Both. Private Port 6346. Public Port 6346. Under Schedule you can pick the time you want the port open.
I'm not sure all these settings are right, but it works.

In System 9:
Go Apple Menu -> File Sharing. That's where the IP Address of your computer will be shown.
LimeWire might allow others to upload without doing these following steps. Maybe LimeWire prefs are used to set the sharing folder and this stuff isn't necessary. I can't remember. I haven't used System 9 and the last version of LimeWire since maybe last Thanksgiving.
Then click the Users & Groups Tab. Highlight Guest, and click the Open button. Choose Show:Sharing and click the button "Allow guests to connect to this computer." You would probably want to uncheck Program Linking.

Also - I forgot this yesterday -
In LineWire Menu -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Firewall. You might want to check the box Force IP
