Usually taht's a network issue. Try rebooting your router and computer. Also check for any odd issues in your hosts file

For the hosts file, look in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc and edit the 'hosts' file there.

The file should mostly have a bunch of lines starting with '#', and a single line with

127.0.0.1 localhost

118 is an timeout error which means that somehow it's not getting to the community. Usually this is a network issuewhich means it's your router, or your dns is messed up
