    "it looks like you're offline"

    Vista SP1, standard install, with Live messenger installed - trying to
    upgrade messenger. IE is my browser. When I start messenger I get the
    messeage that a new version is available, when I start the install process
    the "It looks like you're offline" message comes up. I'm not offline - as
    right now the message is on my screen and I'm opening this question in the
    news group, in the right corner of IE, "Sign Out" is there. Still messenger
    thinks I'm offline and won't install.

    Ideas?
