Internet works but Origin won't go online

★★★★ Newbie

I keep trying to go online in origin, but it won't connect to te internet. I am able to browse the internet, but when I click "go online", Origin says it is unable to connect. I've tried turning off my firewall, deleting cookies, adding ports, and nothing works...
