i just downloaded the bitcoin wallet app and everything seemed to work fine until i had someone send me bitcoins. As soon someone sent me some bitcoins I received "2500 blocks," but i still have zero connections, zero transactions, and my wallet balance is zero. probably a noob question, but I just want to make sure nothing's wrong. when should my balance update? Is there something special I have to do?

this is an image of what im talking about:

Nothing appears under transactions either and yes, generate coins is on

Make sure you forward port 8333 in your router.  I had a similar issue back thinking it was MSE but it was my router the whole time.  Shocked
