ive finally got the internet back after nearly 6 months away from settlers, It updated and the game loads into the menu screen fine.
at the top right it says "offline" and the login ****on doesnt do anything. The ticker tape along the bottom says "awaiting news".
as i can't login I cant carry on playing my game so I tried to start again and began with the tutorial to find that I cannot actually build anything, i.e the mountain shelter.
I have no firewalls on or security and it still doesnt want to connect. Its been nearly 2 weeks, i'm guessing its me but I cant work out what I've done wrong?

Please help as its frustrating me!
