    i can't figure this out. i have a wrt54g version 1. i have 3 wirelss clients and one wired client. one of the wireless clients is running limewire. whenever limewire is running it disconnects every other computer from the internet, even the wired one. i can still ping the lan ip of the router and the wan IP, but not the default gateway of the router. i have tried several firmwares including official linksys and third pary stuff.
    I've tried using QOS to put limewire ports to low priority.
    short of not using limewire anymore, does anyone have any suggestions as to what firmware or settings to use to allow the other computers to stay connected while limewire is in use on the 1 wireless computer. ps. the wireless computer stays connected all the time, never any issues.

    what firmware do you have now.

    if you have dd-wrt you could use the IP Filter Settings

    or see if you could keep it cool.

    Hi all!

    Try LimeWire 4.8 or newer and make sure that NAT Traversal is working. This version is meant to support UPnP NAT Traversal which allows the program to "punch through" a port mapping by itself. Also, make sure that the firmware does support UPnP NAT Traversal -- the official Linksys firmwares do support that.

    With regards,
