Hello @Winston and forum Mods,

I was trying to restore my MIOTA balance today in wallet version 2.5.7., but the nodes in the drop down menu under  Tools\Edit Node Configuration don't seem to work. The few that I tried either say"Connection Error" when I use them to login, or if Login is successful and I click on Receive then attach to the tangle to restore my balance, it is either stuck in "Attaching To Tangle" step for a very very very long time, or, when I select a different node, and attach to the tangle again, I get the error "Invalid Response".

How do I reclaim my balance? It is showing zero now. Last time I did this, I had to reattach to the Tangle 49 times, but the node was working then and I was getting "Attached to Tangle" status with every address I generate.

Please help! I don't know what to do,

@CryptoHamster and @EricHop,

Can you please help me with the issue above? I'm based in Texas, United States, which node should I select that you think will work?

Hey @Dizer,
thanks for your post!
I understand this can be frightening, but it's not only you. Apparently many nodes fell out of synch today.
It sometimes happens, but it doesn't put your funds in danger or anything.
If the default nodes don't work, you can always select "Custom" in the dropdown menu and paste in one of the online and synched nodes from these websites:
https://www.tangle-nodes.com/?sorts[load]=1&sorts[tls]=-1 
http://iotanode.host/
https://iotasalad.org/nodes

I wouldn't be able to help anyone without thetangle.org-explorer. If you feel like you want to support its developer Mathieu Viossat in maintaining his service, please consider a donation to the address shown here: https://thetangle.org/about. Thank you!

Thank you so much Alexa. I was actually able to find a node in the default list that worked moderately well ( I got "Request Error" couple of times when I was trying to attach to the tangle) and I was able to see my balance again after about 47 tries of generating new addresses.

Thank you so much again for your support.

@Dizer
Ok, cool. You're welcome! Smile
You see, after a snapshot you always have to generate all your previous addresses. 
As there are so many already, you might want to consider sending your whole balance to a fresh new seed to reduce this number and also log-in time.

Hi @CryptoHamster,

I guess I spoke too soon. The I logged back out of my wallet and then attempted to log back in again. When I selected the same default node that worked before, it gets stuck in the "Logging In" state for a long time and never logs me in again.

I also tried the custom addresses you provided, but I get the status "Invalid" every time I click on the SAVE button.

How do I send my balance to a new fresh SEED? Can you give me a step by step procedure?

Thanks for your suport

Well, the long log-in time might have to do with the fact that the wallet has to get all your data from the host node at log in.
With 47 addresses and probably as many transactions this may take awfully long, especailly when the host node is under high load anyway.

The links above are not host nodes. Those are websites that list nodes which you can then copy/paste as a custom host. Try the iotasalad link first, it’s the easiest to make you understand how these sites work.

My wording might have been a bit off regarding the new seed. You’re not supposed to send funds to a seed of course.
What I mean is, that you might want to send your funds to an address generated from a new seed.

You just create a new seed in a secure way, like explained here: 
https://blog.iota.org/the-secret-to-security-is-secrecy-d32b5b7f25ef

Save your new seed and create at least one backup of it (e.g. pen and paper).
Log in with the new seed, generate the first address and attach it to the tangle in the Receive tab. Save this address somewhere.
Logout. Log back in using your backup to test it and see if the address you just attached is still there to verify that your backup works properly.

Log in with your old seed and go to the Send tab.
Paste in your address from the new seed, double check if it’s really your address and not anything else from your clipboard.

Make a little test transfer of just 1 IOTA.
If that works just fine and you can see the 1 IOTA when you log in with your new seed, you can then send the rest of your funds to your new address.

I wouldn’t do that right now though while the nodes and the tangle are acting up like this. Just wait for when the network’s back to normal again.

I wouldn't be able to help anyone without thetangle.org-explorer. If you feel like you want to support its developer Mathieu Viossat in maintaining his service, please consider a donation to the address shown here: https://thetangle.org/about. Thank you!
