Limewire won't connect

by beethunga / June 1, 2008 4:15 AM PDT

Hey everyone,

I got my Vista about six months ago, and it's saying that Limewire won't connect. I've been unable to dl music this whole time. I only get one bar of conectivity, and nothing shows up when I search songs/ movies.

I'm using a VistaPro OS and I have a 2wire Modem.

And you surely wouldn't want to participate in illegal operations like sharing music or movies you don't have the copyright of, with others, would you? ASnyway, the forum policies forbid discussions on those subjects.

The essence of P2P programs like Limewire ...

is that you download and upload simultaneously. Check the stats the program shows.
How could you download if nobody uploads? It's 1:1.

I know another person that had the same problem and after dinking around with it for a couple weeks just gave up and removed it from his computer. Now he gets his music legally from Rhapsody.
He said it is much easier, doesn't cost all that much and now he is not worried about a knock on the door.
