    Are you using a router or firewall? Make sure they are configured properly. And personally, it takes me acouple of minutes to connect. So wait awhile too
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    What I found works is to uninstall ares and then goto www.aresgalaxy.org and reinstall it again.
    I use WinXP and It worked for me.

    Reinstall Ares. Theres a new update of Ares with superficial updates and more ad-ware to uncheck in installation.

    I had a similar problem last month in that it would take around 20minutes for it to connect, the problem eventually sorted itís self out. Maybe if you left it to connect for awhile if you havenít already done so, and then came back to it

    Ditto to the firewall...proxy settings?
    open control panel, under network check the firewall box if you are behind one, and dont use proxy server.

    There is a "check connection" box you can click in the same window. It should ony take about 2 seconds to pass.

    Temp turn off the firewall and see if it will work, assuming you have a firewall. If it works, fix your firewall settings.

    My Ares used to have problems connecting, but for the last 4 weeks it has connected within a minute or so (on 56k dial up).

    I think the programmer has (finally) done some work on the network rather than spending time making the program look pretty with all the new colours etc.

    Regards

    PS Re-installing over the top used to work well for me.
