Hi yuob,

Try the troubleshooting steps in this section of the troubleshooting guide. Specifically, please make sure that the port 5222 is open. If possible, can you test this by connecting your pc directly to your modem and bypassing your router (if you are using a separate one).

If nothing works, follow the steps here to generate your Debug Logs. Post them here, along with your Dxdiag/system specs.
