Let me suggest two things.  First, if you are on a wireless connection, see if it helps to switch to a direct cable connection.  Many people have trouble gwetting a stable connection to SL when they are on wireless.  Even on a private router, there's enough interference from cell phones, garage door openers, and home appliances to interrupt the signal and make you crash.

Second (this is where I bet the problem really is), check your firewall settings.  Unless you have made an exception for SL in your firewall software, it will block you from running the viewer.   See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/How_do_I_configure_my_software_firewall_%28such_as_Norton_Internet_Security,_McAfee_Personal_Firewall,_or_ZoneAlarm%29%3F for instructions on how to do it.
