I already tried to get this resolved in the mining forum, but nobody could help me. Basically, whenever I try to mine for bitcoins, either from the bitcoin client (I know it's pointless) or from GUIminer to slush's pool, I get stuck on 'Connecting'. I've tried disabling the firewall (Win7), but it still won't connect. I'm trying to use either the CPU or CUDA miner (i7-930 and GTX 460).

In fact, the Bitcoin client itself hasn't even been able to download the blocks required to authenticate itself, and just shows '0 connections'

EDIT: I've been able to fix the problem with the Bitcoin client by placing my computer outside the router's firewall (A temp. fix, probably not a good idea to leave it that way), but I still can't connect through GUI miner.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.
