Please Help!!!

Whenever I try to access the iTunes Store it says:

"We could not complete your iTunes request. The network connection was refused. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again."

I don't use Norton Security.

I ran a diagnostic review in iTunes if that helps:

Send a message via Yahoo to sobeit

try bypassing the router and plug the computer directly into the modem and see if you have access.

No. That means that your router is blocking iTunes for some reason. Do you have any restrictions on your router that you have set?

you will have to go into your router settings and see if it is being blocked. exactly what router model do you have?
