Go into Connection Options and make sure the Proxy setting is set to No Proxy (assuming you don't actually use a proxy server). If that doesn't work, then something on your computer is blocking Dropbox's access to the Internet. Temporarily disable any firewall or antivirus you may be running, and try again.
