I had been using my Bitcoin client for months on my Windows computer running XP.
One day, I have trouble connecting to anything else on the internet, but my Bitcoin client seems to be running okay. When I restart my computer, my internet eventually comes back, but I've had "0 connections" to the Bitcoin network for the past 2 weeks since.
I tried sending a test payment, and that payment was deducted from my wallet, but it never got broadcast. I figure it will get out once I finally figure out my connection issues.
I have my wallet backed up on a flash drive, but loading up that wallet data did nothing to help me establish network connections.
I am NOT stuck syncing. I'm just not connected or syncing at all. Everything else on my computer is otherwise running fine.
What is the best address and port to connect to? Are there good backup options?
If all of my addresses are correct, how do I figure out why I have 0 connections to the Bitcoin network, and how can I either reset those connections or otherwise get up and running again?
