Couldn't be simpler:

Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Allow a program through
Windows Firewall > Add Program....

Another important piece of knowledge:

Start > Help and Support

I'll assume your using windows firewall.

Start < type Windows firewall in search box < Click the one that says
Windows firewall

Heres what to do next

On the left side there should be a link that says "Allow a program through
windows firewall"
If you are prompted for a Administrative user password enter it.

When it opens Click add program.
Pres the "L" key until you find limewire. (if its there)

If its not there

Click browse
goto C:\Program Files\Limewire
click Limewire.exe
click ok.
click ok again.

If its not checked in Program or pot check it then press ok.
Your done
