Hi Thanks for that i tried your step by step guide but its still not having none, unless im doing something wrong, in limewire settings do i put my own port number in listening port and manually configure port and then select that or do i leave it on uPnP? mind you ive tried both. Has the connect package saga goes i signed up for thE Max package and was told thats what i will recieve but with the process switching over isp taking so long there were no more slots left at my exchange,(well thats what Sky Says). I will cahnge my profile. Any more help would be great, Cheers Saturday

Choose a high number port (e.g. 39123) and set this in Limewire. Use this port number in setting up the router. Limeware is UPnP aware so you shouldn't need to port forward. However the UPnP implementation is poor on this router and many people turn it off.
However this could all be academic. You now say you're on Connect (rather than Max as your profile states) so I suspect you're suffering from the same problem that some other Connect customers are - very low P2P speeds but OK downloads. There is a thread elsewhere that covers this.
One can only assume that some form of traffic shaping is being implemented, though that's just a guess. One way to get around this would be to use a P2P client that supports encrypted traffic as this makes P2P hard to identify and hence hard to "throttle". I don't think Limewire has this capability but I don't know for sure, I haven't looked.

If you don't like your anti virus try AVG anti virus. I have had this for two years and never had prob with it. It stops everything there are a constant flow of updates. Also it's free from their website to home users. Find it at their site www.avguk.com

In my experience the antivirus application is just about OK but the complete package of Internet Security is a nightmare - bloated, power sapping, interfering and a pain in the proverbial.
I once had the pleasure of helping someone remove this from their PC and boy was it hard to clear its effects from the system and return it back to normal. It would have been easier to format and reload the o/s.
