Activation Error Code: 0x80072EE2

I installed the Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium. I am trying to activate and I receive an Error Code: 0x80072EE2. It says it is due to an operation time out. I am connected to the internet. I do not understand how to proceed.

Sounds like a time out session on the Server, I would keep trying periodically. You have a 30 day grace period, so immediate activation is not necessary. If the problem continues to persist, try phone activation:
Activate Windows 7 manually:
1. Click Start, and in the Search box type :  slui.exe 4

2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard

3. Select your Country.
4. Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.
