    Internet not connected.

    1)From morning, my internet has not been connected.

    2)From morning, my internet has not been working.

    Which one of the above two is correct?

    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")

    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.
