I connect to the internet with the follwing settings:

proxy: proxy.sparkbd.net
port: 8080

my direct internet connection is very slow but connecting through the proxy server makes the connection a lot faster.

Now i have installed limewire and i can connect to the network using "no proxy" but the download speed is really really low. I thought setting up the proxy configuration would make it faster but i couldnt connect through the proxy. Do i need to change the listening port no (default 6346) to my proxies port 8080? I have no idea what am i gonna do!! My ISP's proxy server doesnt have any firewall.

LimeWire's HTTP proxy support only uses HTTP tunneling, proxies don't cache anything transferred over that kind of connections. A cache only caches popular internet files that MOST people go to. Your ISP would most likely NOT cache Limewire stuffs because it would take up waaaay to much space.
