You need to wait until the block count in the lower-right corner of the Bitcoin client reaches the current block count. Right now that is 149866 (source).

3 suggestions in fact:

  • Whitelist Bitcoin client on firewall
  • Forward the bitcoin ports on your router
  • wait for the blockchain to finish downloading
