Question Firewall stopping Peer to Peer File sharing

I am looking for advice on a router. I am new to Linux and am trying to use Limewire and Ktorent and can make no connection. Limewire indicates I have a firewall. I have a Linksys router WRK54G and my guess is that is the problem. I have spent hours upon hours trying to get it to work using info from this site and to get past the firewall problem with no success. I think I did all the router changes thru the web I could and am having no success. I am wondering if there is a router which works with broadband cable I can purchase which would alleviate the firewall problem. The Linksys cuts out often (not as much with Freespire) so an upgrade may help with that also. If anyone thinks my problem is not with my wireless router I would appreciate direction there also

iprsetup - Internet Protocol router setup SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/iprsetup -s /usr/sbin/iprsetup -sd /usr/sbin/iprsetup -r /usr/sbin/iprsetup -rd /usr/sbin/iprsetup -fvalue /usr/sbin/iprsetup -fvalued /usr/sbin/iprsetup -d OPTIONS
Sets ipforwarding and ipgateway to one, which means the system functions as an IP router. This option cannot be combined with the -r option. Resets ipforwarding and ipgateway to zero, which means the system does not function as an IP router. This option cannot be com- bined with the -s and -f options. Sets ipforwarding and ipgateway to one (like the -s option), and also sets ipfirewall to one, which means the system functions as an IP firewall. Additionally, sets ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects according to the specified value. The fol- lowing table shows the valid values and their meaning: ---------------------------------------------------------- Value Meaning ---------------------------------------------------------- 0 Sets both ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects to zero 1 Sets ipsrcroute to zero and ipchkredirects to one 2 Sets ipsrcroute to one and ipchkredirects to zero 3 Sets both ipsrcroute and ipchkredirects to one ---------------------------------------------------------- This option cannot be combined with the -r option. Only application gateways for firewall services use this option. Displays the values of ipforwarding and ipgateway. The values are displayed after the values are changed when combined with the -s, -r, and -f options. DESCRIPTION
The iprsetup command sets the ipgateway and ipforwarding variables in the running kernel allowing your system to function as an Internet Protocol router. When ipfirewall variable is set to one, the following variables are also set: Indicates whether IP source-routed packets are accepted (1) or dropped immediately (0). Indicates whether ICMP Redirect messages are authenticated (1) or accepted with no authentication (0). The iprsetup command is automatically executed by netsetup when you configure your network daemons. It is also executed by the /sbin/init.d/inet script when you reboot your system or restart the network on your system. FILES
