Well, I open the MiKTeX Package Manager window, I search for the mh bundle, then I try to install it, so it starts a download and says

Connect failed in tcp_connect()"

It's like it cannot connect to server. How to do this?

Try turning off your firewall. And, sorry if I offend, but ensure you're actually connected to the Internet. – Sean Allred Aug 14 '13 at 4:10
@SeanAllred Yeah i fixed it, it was the damn firewall xD. – Wyvern666 Aug 14 '13 at 4:16

Make sure your firewall isn't blocking the connection. Often, it's easiest to simply disable it completely during an update.
