@esterlion No need to switch programs. I only needed that info so I'd know exactly what advice to give.
In order to see if you have port fowarding go to Options > Setup Guide, then click the "Run Tests" button. If it says the port is open then you're all set and can't really do anything else to improve your peer finding.
If port fowarding in not enabled, then go to Options > Connection and make sure "Enable UPnP port mapping" and "Enable NAT-PMP port mapping"are both checked. If they're not checked then please do that. If they ARE checked, then you probably have an issue with your router, and that's a bit too tricky to diagnose without somone actually looking at your router settings.
