Hi all!
I have problem, exactly for some time i can't play Minecraft. I have original, not pirate. When I want to log in to game, there is problem: "Can't connect to Minecraft.net". When I play offline I can't connect to servers because there is written:

Minecraft Server
Communication error (example)

Earlier i could not connect to my original server.

In Launcher, there are Minecraft News. I do not have Minecraft News, only this:

<html><body><font color="#808080"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><cente r>Failed to update news<br>java.net.SocketException: Network is down: connect</center></font></body></html>

I can't reinstall minecraft, because I can't connect to Minecraft.net

So my question is: Does anybody knows how to fix this problem?
Thank you all for reading my topic, and please someone write how the fix this problem

Off topic: When I start World of Tanks I have similar problem. I can't update game.
