No Live Weather or Traffic, No Server Connections

Installed MSFS 2020 from Steam. I have no live weather and no live traffic. No multiplayer activity. It doesn’t connect to any servers and Marketplace is not an active link. Under “Servers” it just shows “Automatic” with no other options. Assume I have no outside connectivity. I’ve signed out of and into Microsoft/XBox accounts on startup. I see some comments that running the FS .exe as administrator may make it work but not sure how to do that using Steam. If I’m missing something any thoughts would be appreciated. Wondered why the weather was clear everywhere and the skies were empty.
