Connection failed after 4 retries
I recently installed latest RTM build of win7 (was using RC before) and since then I keep getting this error when trying to connect to game servers.
pvkii start loading a server but instantly get stuck with 4 bars. then it ends up with this message : "Connection failed after 4 retries"
however, one server did work (can't remember which one atm). all others didn't.
tried disabling windows firewall and nod32 antivirus. forwarded port 27015 in router (never had to do it before).
reinstalled steam and pvkii from scratch (source sdk and everything). nothing helps.
I'm helpless... can't seem to get around this problem. my internet connection works fine.
any suggestions ?
I hate steam related headaches
