i m connected via beetel 220bx modem via a switch so are other 3 ppl...they use limewire and the speed gets shared ....and i cant open a single page....is there any way to block lime wire from the router side?
"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 !!!
@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.
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...
