Limewire says I don't have an internet connection, but I'm surfing right now. What's wrong?

your machine does not appear to have an active internet connection or a firewall is blocking limewire from accessing the internet. Limewire will automatically keep trying to connect you to the network unless you select disconnect from the file menu.

I checked my firewall, but Limewire is listed as an exception. My only firewall is windows firewall.

I'm using windows xp service pack 2

    Sweetie, this happenz when "your connection" is different than the one in limewire'z propertiez. for example, ur on dial up & limewire workz on DSL, so go to connection propertiez & set the connection like the one u have on ur computer, if that doezn't work, try reinstalling limewire or download bearshare. itz soooo much better than any limewire crap!
