Some people are experiencing problems getting their Ethereum Wallet, Mist or geth node client to synchronise with the Ethereum network.
See the following posts for my temporary workaround:

gethClient Not Syncing – Possible Problems With Bootnodes
- ESE – How can I extract create a list of peers from my syncing geth node to manually paste into my non-syncing geth node using the admin.addPeer() command?
- ESE – geth does not syncs out of the box

Please test this now and reply whether peers are found and the sync begins for you.
In geth 1.4.12, I am now able to find peers and successfully start syncing.
I’ve tested and my previously non-syncing node now syncs automatically. I retested connectivity to the bootnodes below and the first 3 connect immediately.
It would be interesting to know what caused this non-syncing situation for many geth nodes. Update the node software on their bootnode servers? Reboot their bootnode servers? Make available more connection slots on their bootnode server?
