    Hi there Skanic.
    Let's see if we can figure the problem out here.
    This was a problem for many initially after installing the preview.

    How long have you been at 8.1?
    Did you re-enter your Microsoft account information after taking the preview?
    Can you log on to the Microsoft account via desktop then see the store from there?

    I get "Can't connect to the store" at times also.
    This normally doesn't last long for me however.

    I have the same problem. I'm on 8.0 but I also have an Asus router. I can connect to the store from other WiFi networks but not at home. It used to work and then stopped at some point.

    what was the router problem you had?

Dont know if ir will work for you guys but here is what I did. I went to settings system access point and changed select operator to mine. I dont know why it had changed but it had. Now all is working well
