    Default Windows 8 App Store can't connect to the Internet

    Hi all,

    I installed Windows 8 PRO yesterday, everything works fine. Just one problem- I cant go to app store at metro start screen. Windows 8 App Store can't connect to the Internet, I am sure internet works fine as I tried Internet Explorer from the Desktop, that works fine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Bub,

    2 suggestions:

    1. Wait & try again, in a few hours or tomorrow.
    2. Uninstall the APP & re-install it.

    If you don't know how to do the 2nd, be glad to instruct you.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Method 1:

    Open Start and go to Date and Time
    Then change timezone, to yours
    Go to Internet time, and set the time zone to yours, aswell

    Method 2:

    Open Start and go to Internet Settings
    Then go to Connections
    Click on LAN Settings
    Check Automatic settings (The one at the top)
    Uncheck Use a proxy server (The one at the bottom)
    Save and then open Store again
