Outlook2010 not auto send/recieving, changed settings to 10 min

I've tried all reasonable automatic send/receive for Outlook2010 5minutes to 45 minutes and it just won't automatically send/receive. I understand the difference between online and offline for the setup. One thing I have noticed is that Outlook always says I'm working off-line. I

Auto send/receive is disabled when in offline mode.

On the menu at top you should have a send / receive option. The ribbon that is displayed when you select this item has two preferences on the right of the ribbon.

If the Work offline button is highlighted click on it to turn it off. It should now be un-highlighted and the working Offline message at the bottom of the status bar should disappear.

Please let us know if this does not work for you.

I can't figure out how to keep it from stayin in "working offline mode". No matter what I click it seems to stay working offline.

With Outlook 2007 you could set it up to send receive every 15 minutes or so that would be ideal. With 2010 I have left important emails in the outbox too many times that I must try something different.
