look at your router manual. there should be some place where you can configure the router's firewall and port forwarding. you need to either turn off the firewall or forward the port used by kazaa.

Some routers will actually slow your connection speed down. Mine drops a little with my router but not enough to really bother me. I have a friend who's connection drops considerably when he has his router connected. So much so that when he is gaming he disconnects it to get a much faster ping time from the server.
