"3 other people" ??? man, sounds like the reason why ISPs are afraid of providing affordable high-speed UL plans (as posted on VT forum), coz people will share/resell it and abuse the system. jai hind!

@jason look in the modem for "parental control" and add the limewire site address./port. timing etc. Are you the Administrator for the group ?You can block the port/s in the modem.I have the same modem and will check up.Same thing told in the modem's web page. Each computer will have a name like, jason, helen, priam, trojan etc get the Mac address. To test ,try yours first for a short period !!!

I have not seen the modem pages. In your computer Start Run type cmd type ipconfig/allSee whether you get the details of the computers connected in the network.see previous post updated wrongly.

uninstall limewire on their computers and give them just guest permissions.

Add a fake limewire dns entries in their c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc :D limewire.com 127.0.0.1You will also have to add entry for other limewire servers .

@jason I never tried it and there was no need also !!
Everybody wants to open port/s but yours is just opposite.
2. As suggested here by others (
I think you can block the limewire web site/s
in the Browser IE/ Tools/Internet Options also. in each computer.

Power's suggestion:
How can I block a web site from being viewed?

how/why are you giving access to unknown people on a network, whos PCs you cant access, to your modem??? i cant figure it out... are you flatmates sharing a single connection? how many users? or is it a measly 128kbps connection shared throughout an entire building/colony??? :)if the modem is yours/under your control, simply unplug it from the "network" and directly plug it in to your PC only... the other users will suffer downtime while you are browsing...
