    Both could work depending on what message you want to convey. I would also use "since" instead of "from".

    1) Since morning, my Internet (cable) has not been connected. (the cable was not connected, therefore the Internet connection was down - your "fault")
    2) Since morning, my Internet has not been working. (the cable was connected, but there were problems with the connection (ISP issues, DNS issues etc.) - not your "fault")

    Default Re: Internet not connected.

    You also need to specify which morning:

    Since this morning, I have not been able to connect to the internet.
    Since yesterday/Tuesday/last Thursday morning, my internet connection has been down.
