    I hate LimeWire.

    I have decided that I want to block all Limewire Connections on my network. The problem is, I don't know how to block ports/programs on Airport Extreme! Is there a way to do it? Or would I have to change firewall settings on each computer and/or get a new router?

    The DoorStop software you linked to does not block traffic on the network it just configures the firewall on the local machine to open/close certain ports on that computer. Depending on the router that you have it might be possible to block certain services or ports.

    I am running a Linksys WRT350N with DD-WRT firmware and two 9dbi antennas and can do this along with many other things.
