It means you are not connected to the internet, the internet isnt configured properley, or your firewall is blocking it.

You should be able to activate by Phone (i think you can do it by SMS text too). You can do this in XP. Dont know about vista.

Give phone activation a shot. And make sure your internet connection is working- what firewall are you using?

Post back with results!

All the best,

This happened to my friend once with vista, and the only thing that worked was activating via phone, and he found out that it was a "false" license key, and they gave him a new one and for him, it works like a charm. Give phone activation a try, and it may take a while, but it will work, assuming u have a legal copy of vista.

good luck!!!
