Check your firewall setting.
check if your connection is working or not, by connecting to other pc if possible.
check if dns etc config for your internet is ok, for this you must call you ISP and check if there are no issues with you connection.
showing connecting cant mean actually connected, it wont work unless confuguration setting are good.
