System: Windows 7 64-bit, bitcoin.exe 0.4.0-beta.
About 5 months ago, I had bitcoin installed and everything was working property. I had uninstalled it since then, and just now installed fresh via the newest version on bitcoin.org.
This time around it seems I am failing to connect. It shows 0 connections. In options I have everything checked, and the port is "9050". I changed the port number to "8333", then it fluxed between 1 and 2 connections. With either one, the block number stays the same. I have not changed anything on my router. Block explorer shows that my address has received the full balance already. Right now I have the port on "9050" in bitcoin.
Please explain in newb terms.
