Why does my wallet show “out of sync” when I have peers/connections?
The wallet when it loads always shows “out of sync”. If there are no new blocks, then it will stay in this state regardless of number of connections until a new block is found. At the bottom you’ll find ‘…weeks behind’. Wait for it to completely sync. Your wallet should sync automatically.
