Maybe you can get better help in the MiKTeX mailing list. But anyway,  
what version of MiKTeX are you using?

Have you verified your MiKTeX settings?:

Programs -> MiKTeX (2.7?) -> Settings -> Packages tab -> Package  
repository (click in Change...), verify that ``Packages shall be  
installed from the Internet'' is selected, click in ``Connection  
Settings'' and verify everything is as it should.

Hope you can get better help here or in the MiKTeX forums or whatever  
(I'm not a MiKTeX ---nor Windows--- user).
