    Check this first before messing with the firewall settings. Go into the Control Panel, then Internet Options, click on the Connections Tab, then the LAN SETTINGS button, if Use a Proxy Server is checked, un-check it. and then check the box for Automatically detect settings. The Proxy Setting is not used in a home setup, but if you are connecting to the internet from a business that routes internet traffic via a server then the proxy settings may be needed and you should check with the IT department to verify that the settings are correct. But for most users, the proxy server is never needed, and if is is enabled then Metro will not connect out to the internet. let us know if that worked.
