I haven't been able to get any file sharing programs to work with my computers connection. I'm using a school connection - T1 I think. I've tried Limewire, Ares, and WinMX. I got WinMX to connect and search, but nothing would download - they all just said Waiting for network response and then they eventually time out. The other two wouldn't even connect. I am using AVG for viruses and ZoneAlarm for a firewall. I setup ZL to give the programs full access and even tried shuting ZL and AVG down completely but that didn't change anything? Internet and AIM, etc work fine. Any Ideas? I am no expert so watch the lingo :). Thanks in advance.
