hi, i'm also new to frostwire. Downloaded frostwire 4.21.7 last week, worked fine the first day, then starting having "starting connection" problems. I have windows xp home edition 2002 service pack 3. I tried the eventviewer and I am getting the 4226 error, i disconnected frostwire and reconnected several times (didn't help). Restarted laptop. I have also uninstalled frostwire and reinstalled. I changed the gnutella file as suggested (didnt help). Attempted the patch, but for some reason was unsuccessful. Checked the security firewall and frostwire is enabled. Anymore suggestions? Should I maybe try to install a earlier version of frostwire. I have java version 6. I live in the US, use iphone for for wi fi capabilites to laptop.
