The LimeWire Gateway is an easy way to connect to the Gnutella Network.

The LimeWire software automatically connects to the LimeWire Gateway on
startup, but those of you not using LimeWire, you can still take advantage
of this excellent service. Simply enter "router.limewire.com" as
the initial connection in your Gnutella software, to use the LimeWire
Gateway host connection service. We encourage you, however, to use the
LimeWire software in conjunction with the LimeWire Gateway because you will
be able to take advantage of one of LimeWire's unique features -- the
ability to enter into open clusters devoted to certain interest groups or
computing classes, thereby optimizing your search process.
