Server Status Unavailable

Often when opening the League of Legends Launcher, I receive the Amumu face and the text, "Unavailable -- Are you connected to the Interent?"

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Double-click on the "Play League of Legends" icon on my desktop, which is a shortcut for "C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\lol.launcher.exe".
2. Launcher appears. Bug: under "Server Status", "News", and "Community", I see spinning circle icons.
3. Bug: after a few seconds of this, the circles disappear, and I see the following underneath the "Server Status" section:

Unavailable
Are you connected to the Interent?

The "Play" button remains grayed out, and I am unable to continue.

Additional Notes:
-Yes, the misspelling of "Internet" is correct.
-This seems to happen roughly 30% of the time.
-If I close and reopen the launcher, the problem is usually fixed. However, sometimes after the bug does NOT occur, if I close and reopen, I will get the bug again.
-Entering the "Konami Code" replaces the "Unavailable" status with the usual "Online" status. This makes the bug minor for me, but it is a more serious bug for the average user, who may not know that they can reopen to work around the issue.

Wow, every single time? That could be something different. Are you sure you're connected to the interent? :P

You can try the following steps:
1. Open the launcher
2. Click anywhere inside the launcher window
3. Press the following arrow keys, in sequence: "Up Down Left Right Up Up Down Down".
4. The text should change to "Online", and you should be able to click "Play".

This is not a joke; try it and see. If you're not able to connect to the patching server at all, though, you may have more issues after this.

I've had this problem for a while now (server unavailable 100% of the time). I've been using the super secret code to play, and while funny it's still a little annoying. I've tried reinstalling, but that didn't fix it.

Try disabling the Windows firewall. It's blocking the ports required for LoL to connect, and I don't recall the exact ports LoL uses atm.
