LimeWire Connection Problem

My step-son has Limewire installed on his PC and was using it while at school. Since he has returned home and connected his PC to our home network to access the Internet, he is unable to connect to Limewire. When he tries, he gets the following message, "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".
Including his PC, I have 3 PC's connected through a Linksys router. He can connect to the Internet to browse, but for some reason LimeWire won't.
Any ideas?

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselve legal, most things aquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.
