HI Jonathan. I'm very new to Freenet and have the same problem. One Freenet piece of advice told me to go to: http://www.whatismyip.com/ That will tell you what your IP is and you then insert (copy/paste), that URL number into the "Temporary IP address hint" window.
I haven't done that yet myself as I am trying to uninstall Freenet and put in the latest Build, which I think I have finally downloaded. Post back if you would about how that works, i.e. what it does, results, etc, if you would be so kind. Good luck.
