A lot of people are facing problem regarding windows 8 metro style apps like bing, news, weather etc. not being able to connect internet. I also faced this problem and searched internet for nearly 2 months with no luck. Windows 8 is a relatively new OS and all the solution Microsoft suggests for this problem is to refresh the PC. But if you have a lot of valuable programs installed, you would probably not want to do that. Same was the case with me.
