Default Procaster - Connection always fails

As mentioned above, every time I try to log in to livestream procaster, a pop up shows up with an error stating: "Connection failed." I've had this reoccurring problem for the past three weeks or so and I've done all I could possibly think to solve it on my own. I have tried uninstalling and re installing the program and getting closer to my internet router. Physically connecting to the internet with an Ethernet cable is sort of not an option since it's at a place where it's hard to reach, but regardless I still have a really good internet connection (4 out of 5 bars; 54 Mbps) and a fast laptop, so I don't see what else could be the problem.

What type of connection are you on and do you have any firewalls enabled? You'll want to make sure you have ports 80 and 1935 open.

Could you please confirm the following information on your system:

CPU, RAM, Video card
Operating system
Procaster version

I am using a wireless connection. I would assume McAfee is my firewall, also I've made sure that ports 80 and 1935 are open.
