Cause

Windows Media Player checks for an echo from the default gateway. If there is no IP gateway, Windows Media Player may try to ping the HTTP proxy instead. If the HTTP proxy is outside your firewall and the firewall filters ICMP packets, Windows Media Player may determine that there is no connection.

Resolution

This issue can be resolved by downloading the latest version of Media Player from the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/windows-media)
