    Hi All,

    i'm having a problem with limewire. i get a message saying that i am connecting to the network... but signal strength stays at one bar only and it stays there . so no searches and no downloads possible. it says i am behind a firewall but another computer in the same office using the same wifi network is able to use limewire with no problem.

    anyone encounter this? what might be the problem? thanks in advance :D

    check your firewall, it could be an issue, blocked port on your computer.
