    Open BF3 & make sure you have an account at Battlelog.

    Battelog is in a browser (internet window) and is how you search for available servers.

    Yes, like sentry said, BF3 needs to be launched through Battelog on your browser. This is because BF3 does not have an in game server list.

    On the top right of battlelog it should give you the option to download the plug in.

    It should be on the box if you bought a box version. If you bought it and downloaded it through Origin it should already be included.

    Some servers require certain addons to play on them. That particular one you tried says it requires premium edition. Try joining other servers. You can filter out servers running the expansions.
