    I am having the same problem, I can get in-game for a few seconds then it displays "connection problem" in the top right hand corner of my screen and 9/10 times my internet connection goes down....I am using BT Home Hub connected wirelessly if that is any help, I think it is my wireless connection but i don't know how to solve it =[

    I didnt change any ports however I did a steam test and it said that my ports were ok, how would I go about changing these ports if it was required? I really appreciate your help =]

    you need to review the firewall documentation for specific syntax,
    but the concept is shown in the last post, steam-1/2 are just lables for
    readability and you're forwarding a range of ports using xxx-yyy
