Goto Tools, Options, and you will see a tick box for "connect to internet". Make sure this is checked. Also make sure your firewall is set to allow WMP to access the internet.

Actually WMP10 should attempt to connect to your ISP when it is appropriate, such as gathering album information or going to its main website; it isn't really necessary to check the Connect to the Internet box.

The most likely cause of non-connection is, as OzzyOs mentions, your firewall preventing it from doing so until permission is granted.

In WMP10's Tools>Options>Privacy tab only the first two boxes normally require checking.
