Hello everyone, I've got a couple questions, I hope you guys can answer them for me. First off Im using leopard on a new macbook i got (i love it btw) I'm trying to get limewire to work at a faster speed then 1/2Kb/sec After internet researching and friends, I learned I have to make a port forward on my router, because apparently its my router whihc is causing slow limewire speeds. So I find a site (www.portforward.com) its great, I found a guide for setting limewire up on my router. Now here's the questions: The guide requires me to set up a Static IP address. This is where im stumped. I follow the static IP address guide that the site provides (the guide is designed for OS X Tiger, but i've logically converted instructions to work for Leopard). Thing is whenever I change my network setttings on my mac to have this static IP (following instructions as perfectly as I can) my internet dies. So my last hope is to just change my network settings to how they were before. Any help would be MUCH appreciated I'm not exactly a computer n00b, I just only briefly understand IP address'es and routers etc. So this isn't my area of expertise as you noticed. ONE more thing! Once setting up my static IP address (following instructions like i said above) under network settings my mac says "Airport is connected to *static IP address that I had created*" Also on Safari when i go to access my router page (192.168.0.1) it works and loads perfectly. Just ANY other site doesnt load and just gives me a no connection message.
