Cannot get track names after inserting CD. New problem with iTunes 11?
"Unable to connect to the CDDB server. The network cannot be reached.
Make sure your Internet connection is active and your network settings are correct, then try again."
I'm getting exactly the same problem. It seemd to arise after updating to iTunes 11.
Absolutely no problem connecting to Internet, iTunes store, iTunes Match but not to the CDDB database ...
There seem to be a number of similar compalints under different posts here over the course of the last month. But so far no one has psoted a solution as far as I can see.

I do not know if you have this solved but I may have a solution. I have a MacBookPro early 2011 model with iTunes 11 installed. This is what I did to get it working;
1. Close iTunes
2. Open System Preferences
3. Clicked on Network
4. Select WiFi in the white column on the left
5. Choose the Advanced button in the lower right hand side
6. Press the Proxies tab
7. Choose Auto Proxy Discovery (a tick will apear)
8. Press Ok, then Apply on the Network section and close the window.
9. Relaunch iTunes and see if it connects
Hopefully it works for you.

I have an iMac purchsed in January 2013, connected to the Internet via WIFI, and I had the same problem.
I just tried what JWMS1985 suggested and it worked. Thanks!

Many thanks for posting this, JWMS1985. My problem went away and then came back - this worked instantly. It was an internet problem so if you are connected by Ethernet like me, not WiFi, select that option in Network settings ... all the other steps are the same.
