Solved my problem

I was having the same problem.
Internet was on. Working offline option on WMP wasn't checked. Could browse online with IE and other browsers... but Windows Media player woldn't connect.

I opened my Windows Explorer and typed on its address bar a website address with the www (, even though it open IE to get to the site...this action somehow connected my WMP online, after that "charan!" I could update my albuns and connect to online stores just fine.

Hope this works for you too.
