I Run a Wi-Fi sytem at a large Camping Resort. I use the Linksys 54G Router with Speedbooster.

We need to "Block" certin high volume applications, (Lets Talk about "LimeWire" just to keep it simple at this point).

Can anyone guide me through the steps I need to take to accomplish this task. I'm at my wits ends here and would truly apreciate "ANY" help, coaching, hand holding or sympathy offered.

All I can offer in return is my undieing gradatude!

I'm not sure what "high volume" application(s) you're talking about but if they're needed in your daily operations for some reason(s) that's going to be one thing- if not, can't you simply uninstall them, using your Control Panel/install/uninstall option?

If that doesn't work, here is the Linksys website that offers support- in fact, there is a button you can click on that says Support on it:


I build/rebuild my own PCs and install the OP system and the rest of the software I need because I'm always salivating over the newest and greatest innovations that come out every few months! Wi-Fi feature is on my laptop for when I get a service call! Other than that, I'm not involved in it and don't know enough about your system- maybe I could help more, if I knew more- dunno!

I hope that link helps- they should know exactly what to do!

Good luck-

If you have a network firewall, can't you close a particular port (e.g. port 8608, assigned
to PnP)? That would probably be the easiest approach.

To keep employees from changing your settings, you'd probably need to set a
password on your firewall, too...

If you don't have a firewall, it's never too late to start!! I received almost ZERO spam
only a few days after installing mine!

What he means is...he wants to block people from running high speed applications such as doing major (and illegal ) downloads from places like limewire or others if I read it correctly. So that people will not either jam up the system or else use it illegally.

Have never done it, but like has been said, the router itself should have the capabilites to block what you want.

Another site to help explain, I hope, is...


Hope it helps.

Holy crap. People want to go camping but can't be away from WoW (not WordsofWit). That is just so sad. Funny but sad.
