  • Hi,

    I suspect this is related to app network isolation, please check the network settings referring to the following document:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831418.aspx

    For more information about Windows Firewall in Windows 8, please refer to:

    Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Overview
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831365.aspx

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.

  • I had the same issues a few days after setting up my new Win 8 pc my Metro apps stopped being able to access the internet.  Had to turn it off and back on just to be sure it was not a fluke before troubleshooting but the problem persisted. I do not know if anyone else noticed this but when I went back to the password login and stopped using the picture login the problem disappeared. I did reproduce the issue when I logged in with the picture login and it stopped again when I started using the text based password input. It is almost like Metro is not authenticating properly when I use the picture login.

    I am very interested if anyone else has noticed this that is having the problem.
