Does your ISP use a proxy?
If it doesn't look in IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Settings and check that 'Use a proxy server for this connection' is not ticked.

as beeuuem says make sure that "Use a proxy server for this connection" is NOT ticked. Because if it's not ticked you don't need an address or port.

Check your firewall settings, eg that Internet Explorer is a trusted application.
