If you are on a router that is not configured for UPnP, that could be causing problems, but the place to start looking is your version of Java. Do make sure that your system has current updates, that you have the latest version of FrostWire and are current on Java.
The basic check list for FrostWire problems include:
Latest Version of FrostWire http://frostwire.com
Latest Version of Java http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
Firewall allowing FrostWire
Router allowing ports and/or set for UPnP

All of this is addressed in the one of these articles herein:
