help. internet connection not working for some metro apps?

This has been a problem lately and I haven't had a chance to fix it. Regular desktop is fine and can connect online. my pc is plugged directly, though it would be nice to have it wireless. Some metro apps such as marketplace can download, email and people hub all work, except for Bing Daily News, Sports, Finance and Weather. Netflix, ebay, newegg, amazon seems to work fine though. The live tile works however and is updating them daily but the news app itself for example would say Offline. I am online, and typing this right now.I found this instruction but no luck.http://www.layh.com/wordpress/2012/11/09/windows-8-apps-have-no-internet-access/
