I'm using the 0.0.21 beta client on windows xp

I can't update the block chain, even with one or two connections. I've waited several hours with no updates at all. I transferred 99 BTC from my account at MtGox to my local wallet (or at least I tried to).

my transaction is in block 139894

but I am stuck only at block 136864

what can I do?

Is there any reason why you're not using version 0.3.24?

Update to .24, disable your firewalls, and add a couple of fallback nodes and you should be set.

this... enable upnp if your router supports it, or setup port forwarding so you can get more than 8 connections.
